How working in a team can benefit you

Postby gregorymboelter » Sun, 03 Jul 2016 11:34:36 -0500

We’ve all heard it before: two heads are better than one. Of course we’re talking about teamwork. But what does it really mean? Teamwork occurs when a group of people with different skills work together to achieve the same goal. Functioning, contributing teams rely on successful teamwork.

The benefits of working as part of a team include:

* Skills development: Being part of a team will help you to develop interpersonal communication and even leadership skills, which are valued by employers and important for a successful career.
* Increased productivity and performance: You can achieve more working together than working on your own.
* Building trust: Teamwork depends on trust between members. Trust is developed by good communication and being committed to the goal.
* The ability to focus different minds on the same problem: Each team member will bring different opinions and skills to a discussion leading to a more considered outcome.
* Mutual support: Having your ideas respected and respecting those of others is great for confidence.
* Encouraging healthy risk-taking: With mutual support, if an idea is ‘risky’, the support of team members can encourage the idea to be pursued.
* Fostering creativity and learning: You can throw around your ideas and they will grow with the input of others.
* Teaching conflict resolutions skills: You will not always agree. Working in a team will develop your conflict resolution skills; you will have to be able to explain yourself and listen to the opinions of others to find the best outcome for the team.
* Promoting a wider sense of ownership: Working together you will feel proud of your contributions and feel fulfilled by assisting the team.
* Knowing more about yourself: Collaborating with others will help you to identify your own strengths and weaknesses.
