  • Teamwork is essential for competing in today's global arena, where individual perfection is not as desirable as a high level of collective performance. In our organization today teams are the norm rather than the exception. Team Building
  • Teamwork helps organizations in many ways: It gives the employees cooperative spirit . When people work together for a common goal it gives them a sense of belonging . It is important for people to feel like they are a part of something. When they feel this pride, they will want to put their best foot forward. They will have enthusiasm in the workplace and connect with other employees. Team Building
  • Teamwork brings more efficiency to the workplace. This is really the most important thing. Team Building
  • When people work together in close proximity every day, it makes changes a lot easier. Fellow employees will have the chance to teach and practice the new methods with others in the cooperative. This will save the coop’s money in training and other implementation costs. Team Building
  • Teams should strive to achieve consensus. Unlike the terms unanimous and majority, there is no vote with consensus Team Building
    • A Team Leader should try to get the best out of every player. So, he studies each member, to discover his talents, and to develop them. He also studies each member, to discover their weaknesses, and to strengthen them
    Team Building
    • Then he trains these members to play as a team. He teaches each one to sacrifice his own personal glory for the common good
    Team Building
    • Team play multiplies the power of each individual member
    Team Building
    • The total impact of the team is greater than the sum of their individual talents
    Team Building
    • The team performance goals will be much larger numbers than an individual's numbers, and at first it may seem very difficult to reach.
    • That is why management must break the monthly goals into daily achievable activity; then individual and target numbers seem more attainable
    Team Building
    • Management must not only give praise to the individual doing the exceptional work, but must also focus on the team results and praise, correct, or redirect accordingly.
    • During the team building period (the first 6 months) meeting and discussions with the group should spotlight the positive aspects.
    Team Building
  • If there is an individual who is not meeting their goals, bring them in for counseling via a one-on-one meeting. Team Building

  • A good workplace with happy, productive employees is beneficial for the entire cooperative and its members. Making an environment that allows staff to feel good about their work and how they contribute has its challenges. Promoting a Good Workplace Team Building
  • Management has many responsibilities, including evaluating people based on their work and contributions, and how they interact with others. When an employee demonstrates mutual effort to achieve a common goal, your employees have moved from a single purpose to Teamwork. This allows the members to reach higher goals than they would individually. Team Building
  • Provide incentives for the group when the goals are reached. Daily feedback of results is needed to keep the assembled team focusing on the new goal. This review should move the focus for training and advice from management to the team. Let them share their ideas and experiences. Team Building
