“Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people”
Effective teamwork achieves much more than any individual can! Working alone and finishing targets is easy, what is challenging is to play along with the team and succeed. There are higher chances of individual success while working alone and may also accomplish the desired results but teamwork has the potential to produce amazing results for the organization as a whole. An organization's aspirations are made true when a teamwork is dreamwork.
The best role of a team is its creativity. There could be ten different people in a team with ten different ideas. And it is to be accepted that creativity thrives only when people with different mindsets work together.
Why teamwork makes the dream work?
“There is a saying that “Success is not about doing one thing perfectly but success is avoiding multiple possible ways that can fail“. This can be achieved only when there are people with multiple ideas working together for a common goal.
An individual might think about possibilities in a handful of and often similar kinds of ways, but only through creative brainstorming do effective solutions come out!
Teamwork is dream work when you consider it to be like a jigsaw puzzle, where each piece of the mind is different, but when put up together it gives out the perfect picture. Likewise, people in the team have distinctive yet complementary roles.
Creativity plays a huge role in making teamwork efficient. Also, today’s modern teamwork is dreamwork and is much more diverse, dispersed, digital and dynamic.
What can a well-built team do?
1) Ingests Creativity
A well-built team always has room for creativity and ideas. If there is a problem that comes up, a single individual might have one solution, but a team will have as many solutions as there are people in the team. Here the effectiveness, outcomes are doubled, and dreams are accomplished. Working together is much more productive than working in isolation. When one employee voices out his idea, another employee automatically starts thinking of another possible outcome and there is a chain reaction and that's what a well-built team can do for you!!
2) Compliments Strength
Teamwork is the only place that allows each and every individual’s talent to be presented on the table. Each individual is different. Each individual has his own strengths and weaknesses. A well-built team, brings everyone under one roof, and each individual is allowed to play on his strength, and the outcome of the complementary strengths of each individual is what ultimately drives them to the goal post. This also covers the right delegation of responsibilities to the right individuals. When each individual is allowed to play on his strength, he becomes responsible for it and the productivity of anything is doubled when an individual performs it with utmost responsibility and confidence.
3) On-time completion
In a team when accountability prevails, the delegation of work is automatically done and each individual is responsible for his part of work. As an individual, a person has to crack up his head to get things done with quality and on time. Many a time, if not always, either quality or deadline is compromised. But when it comes to teamwork, each person is responsible for his own part of work and quality is assured in his work and when work is delegated, the workload is spread out and on-time completion is ensured.
“Teamwork divides the task and doubles the success”
4) Always having a back
The best elements in a team are unity and trust. When there is trust in the team, it’s less likely to fall short. “Unity is strength, when there are teamwork and collaboration… wonderful things can be achieved.”
Successful teamwork is dreamwork and is assured when it is built on the grounds of solidarity, respect, communication, and mutual understanding. When one individual is not able to complete his part, a member takes charge and steps into his shoes bringing in more understanding towards each individual.
Though teams face an enormously complicated set of challenges, a relatively small set of elements have an outsized impact on the success of the organization’s dream.
And only a shared mindset can have a perfect mix of the solution to it.
