18 Aug Teamwork makes the Dream Work
We grow up learning how to get along with one another at home, at school, in sports, at work and in basically every other aspect of our human lives, but at some point through this journey we learn not only how to get along but how to help one another and work together for a greater outcome, this is what we call teamwork.
Teamwork by definition is, “the combined action of a group of people, especially when effective and efficient.” Just by reading that sentence we can decipher that teamwork in business could provide benefits that lead to greater success. So today, we take a closer look at why teamwork is so important to success.
Efficiency & Quality
When you have a team working on a project vs one person you can split the project into pieces which can lead to faster and more accurate results by having each part of the project go to a teammate who specializes in that area. In addition, because there is support from the whole team you get the best everyone has to offer opposed to one person becoming overwhelmed or struggling.
Morale & Cohesion
Teamwork creates an atmosphere where you must rely on one another to accomplish the task at hand which builds the bond of trust. When a group succeeds at a project or creates new opportunity for the business, teams feel valued and appreciated by one another and the company which helps to establish mutual respect. As a team accomplishes more, they begin to become a united front that weakens your competition.
Learning & Innovation
Whenever you gather a group of people to work on a single task new knowledge is gained which is amazing for all parties involved. The teammate learns a new skill and the company benefits for an employee developing a new skill. Beyond personal learning opportunities teams experience success and failure in a supportive environment that allows for quick growth. The best part is this shared knowledge and collaboration often leads to innovation. Innovation amongst a team is critical to pushing forward and evolving as a business.
