6 Benefits of Team Working

We all have experienced times when we were part of a great team and there are other times when we struggle along in isolation.  In my experience there are 6 main benefits of team working:

  1. More creativity leading to more ideas and better results
  2. Increased employee satisfaction
  3. The opportunity to develop and acquire new skills
  4. The speed at which things can be achieved
  5. A sounding board for testing out ideas and thoughts
  6. A support network that you can draw on

What do you consider to be some of the additional benefits of team working?

Yes to all of those things. I love to work as part of a team because I like to belong to a group. I also love the fact that you can bounce ideas off each other to create something that nobody would have been able to create on their own.

I think you make a great point about the value of being able to bounce ideas of each other. Amazing what you can create when you all throw your thoughts into the melting pot.

Great ideas. I’d add building deeper relationships and an ability to communicate more meaningfully.

Hi Guy

Thanks for adding your thoughts. Without a doubt when people work together to achieve something it builds bonds, they learn to get their messages across and understand others perspectives better.

TEAM WORK IN MY OPINION IS A WORK ENVIRONMENT WHERE DIFFERENT IDEAS FROM DIFFERENT PEOPLE ARE SHARED WITH A COMMON VIEW OF ACHIEVING POSITIVE RESULT.WHEN IDEAS ARE PUT TOGETHER ,IT COULD BE ANALYZE FROM ALL KNOWLEDGE BACKGROUND TO ASCERTAIN ITS ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES BEFORE IT COULD BE ACCEPTED AND USE AS POLICY OR SOLUTION.WHEREAS ONE PERSON VIEWING SOMETHING FROM HIS OWN PERSPECTIVE MAY NOT GET THE ADVANTAGE OF CRITICISM FOR EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT.IN ONE PERSONS POINT OF VIEW,ALL HE OR SHE DOES SEEMS GOOD IN HIS EYE OF MIND.THERE IS THE SAYING THAT BEAUTY LIES IN THE EYES THE BEHOLDER.
