Teamwork Tools
(by Tots Who Know)

Joel Saltzman

The following "teamwork tools" were written by kids (ages 6-12). They are reprinted from the book, What The World Needs Now: Kids' Advice On Treating People Right, compiled by J.S Salt (aka Joel Saltzman).

Give, but don't expect anything back.

Don't leave people when they're in need of help.

Teach them something you know how to do.

Make everyone feel special.

Give people more chances in life.

Try to remember you're not the only one that can have a bad day.

Never look at someone like they're nothing.

Never say "I'm better than you."
Don't even think it!

Most people are fragile and deep
no matter how tough and shallow they may act.
Try to remember this at all times.

Everyone has a little "nice" puzzle piece.
All you have to do is find it.

When someone does something good,
tell them they did a good job.

Give boosters not put-downs.

Say, "You can always talk to me if you need to."

Don't scream at people - EVER.

Compliment at least 3 people everyday
who are not one of your best friends.

If someone is being mean to another person
go up to them and tell them to STOP it.

If they say "I can't do it,"
you tell them, "Yes, you can!"

Never say anything to make someone feel bad.
Because in the end you feel terrible.

If you say you will do something later ... then do it.

Be good pals.

Don't let your friends make foolish mistakes.

Stick together in bad times like glue.

Give each other presents to mean you really are friends.
Then you will be friends for many, many years.

If you did something bad to someone ...
let them know you're sorry.

Don't pressure people into doing something they shouldn't do.
(And don't let people pressure you.)

Stand up for people who can't stand up for themselves.

Be nice to everybody even if they aren't nice to you.

If you really want to punch someone ...
don't go near them for a while.

Treat your enemies like they're your best friend.

Treat everyone you meet like the
most important person

in the whole world.

Make people feel welcome and confident inside
-- especially if they're new.

Make people enjoy being around you.

When you treat people right you'll become a happier person with more things to be happy about. But treating people right doesn't always come naturally.

And remember ...

Don't treat people like you're the king.
Act like we're all a team and we can do it together.
