The Importance of Teamwork in Organizations: I hated teamwork my whole life, I thought teamwork slows down the processes and burdens the workload even more. I am not the person that I was few years back, I somehow made myself to accept that everybody needs improvement it can be partial or as a whole.
I worked for myself only, of course I was employed but my job responsibilities and their accomplishment was my own, it was more like a One-Man-show where I use to motivate myself by doing things that I was suppose to do. I was so naive to believe in power of teamwork and its fruits for me as well as for the organization that I was working in.
Teamwork is the coordination of people to work together effectively. It is a process in which individual members of a group share their knowledge, skills, and experience to achieve an objective. Teams are often assembled based on particular skills or expertise that is needed to complete the task at hand.
An effective team consists of members who are committed to fulfilling their duties and responsibilities in order to reach the goals set out by the team leader. They should also be willing to communicate with one another about any issues or problems that may arise during the process of completing a task.
The following are some tips for developing an effective team:
- Make sure all members have relevant skills and expertise for completing the task at hand.
- Ensure that all members are committed and dedicated to fulfilling their responsibilities within the team.
- Encourage communication among different levels of expertise so that information can be shared without any barriers or limitations.
Now I am pretty sure and advocate the advantages of a great teamwork which definitely drawn a wide line between success and failure. Its the teams and people management which enable organizations like Google, Apple and of course the Fortune 500 to grow that bigger and be the best employers on this planet.
Same is the case with the entrepreneurs/ business individuals, they’re talented, smart, passionate but all the characteristics are of no use if you’re not able to put together a good team. An environment where the entrepreneur can inspire team members and driving them towards common vision and goals. The following can help : –
- To have your team on track, you should have small talks with your team members.
- Arrange team meetings and activities
- Allow the team members small social media breaks during office timings
I would like to quote Michael Jordan here: –
