Lesson Excerpt:

Working in teams requires people to collaborate on projects. The philosophy behind teamwork is that a group can harness the skills of all its members and will thus be more effective than individuals working alone. However, for teams to succeed the individuals have to share this belief and understand how to cooperate. They need to share values, trust and respect each other, and recognize their own competencies and those of others.

 

Although teamwork requires a willingness to put the groupís needs first, it does not mean that individuals are not recognized and valued for their unique contribution. For any specific project it is essential to know what skills are needed and to find the right mix of people who can provide them. Each team member will have a personal role to play. However, the individuals must share the common goals of the team and be willing to act in accordance with the groupís action plan.
