Lessons in Teamwork
by Jake Croman
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
Teamwork is an
essential and useful
trait in all sectors of
life.
Without strong
cooperation,
communication and
innovation fails to
take firm root in our
everyday lives.
9 Tips for Balancing College Work While Starting Your Business
A vital soft skill for many projects and assignments in college,
teamwork is also needed in the everyday business world.
However, teamwork takes on different forms in different
settings and allows us to learn lessons within the art of
collaboration.
As you start your business and delve into
internships in college, you may notice similarities
and differences between the ways teamwork is
handled in school and work environments.
 Assessing the lessons
that teamwork have to
offer in both realms can
help you determine
which aspects to utilize
in your professional life.
If you’re still in school and wishing to develop your
teamwork skills? Here’s some helpful advice on the
basic differences between teamwork lessons in school
and work so you can optimize your time and skills for
your own personal business success...
#1. Group Communication
Teamwork in the classroom is a great way to prepare you for real
world business. In fact, it’s one of the most useful skills you’ll ever
learn in your professional and social life. However, there are
differences between the ways you’ll learn and experience
communication in school and work.
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
School
In academia, communication will most likely be
harmonious, but it’s not likely to be in-depth.
Generally, students have a congenial attitude towards
a common goal or project with fellow classmates.
However, this means you don’t find advanced
solutions to problems. It can be limiting working
within school guidelines and project-specific
constraints. But, at least you’ll get great practice
focusing on a specific topic.
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
Work
In the business world, it’s likely you’ll need to flex
your negotiation skills often. While remaining
respectful to everyone you work with, as a business
leader you must leverage ways to build your brand
and service to clients.
When you’re part of team, you need to debate and be
vocal when you disagree about details in the deal.
Once you lay everything out on the table, you can
come to a solid conclusion about how to best
approach the deal while making a solid profit.
#2. In-Person Interactions
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
When you’re in college,
face-to-face interactions
between groups may be
needed to complete a
project. However,
because lesson plans
consider the number of
course hours required of
students outside of the
classroom, much group
collaboration in college is
completed remotely.
School
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
Teamwork and
collaboration are much
more in-depth in a work
environment. Although
you’ll utilize a lot of face
time, offices allow you to
work directly with people
on numerous projects
throughout the day. Plus,
you’ll have more in
common with workers
than you will with
students.
Work
#3. Diversify and Preserve
Your Team
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
You may have the
opportunity to work with
diverse individuals with
wide-ranging
perspectives, but for each
project you work on in
class, your groups will
change.
Frequently changing
teams is a huge
disadvantage for
teamwork and personal
growth.
School
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
Business leaders can
learn to work with who
they hire and they also
hire from a diverse and
competitive pool of
people.
In addition, they get to
work with the same group
of employees for as long
as they’re employed with
the company. This helps
build morale and comfort
within the workplace.
Work
#4. Smaller Groups Work Better 
Large universities may offer you more resources, but they also
make for overcrowded classrooms and groups where learning,
collaboration, and focus are much harder to sustain.
School
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
Excessive size can ruin effective collaboration, but many
businesses understand that smaller groups can work better as a
team.
Work
Overall, there are lessons to be gleaned from each team working
experience. School is more individualistic and theory-based,
which can be beneficial in its own right. Yet, it only teaches you a
few foundations of collaboration in the real world.
Instead, start building upon your teamwork skills by picking up an
internship, starting your own business, or volunteering in school
or community organizations and fundraisers.  
From the Blackboard to Boardroom: Lessons in Teamwork
In the meantime, have fun getting to know people and offer a
kind, open-minded attitude towards people of various
backgrounds as you learn the ropes. You can demonstrate
success in business by working with and supporting those
around you.
