  • Effective and efficient teamwork goes beyond individual accomplishments. The most effective teamwork is produced when all the individuals involved harmonize their contributions and work towards a common goal. A team player is one who subordinates personal aspirations and works in a coordinated effort with other members of a group, or team, in striving for a common goal Businesses and other organizations often go to the effort of coordinating team building events in an attempt to get people to work as a team rather than as individuals
  • Reasons why some teams fail: The Environment might be too difficult The Goal could be poorly defined: Goals should be SMART Goals: Specific, Measureable, Achieveable, Repeatable, and Timely Lack of Communication Members lack the skill or knowledge of the subject matter Team members may stray from the goal path Poor Quality All of these things can lead a team to fail.
  • Teamwork must consist of interacting team members. Communication is a key ingredient of successful teams and all members must be considered part of the team; each with their own ideas and skills; team work consists of having the same goal or a common fate.
