Team working is important because it provides consistency of care, everyone knows how things should be
As a tennis player, who mostly plays singles, it is hard to believe that collaborating as team could help me accomplish more than I could alone, because I am on the court alone during competitions. Working with a team is the key to great accomplishments, even in tennis, when it is an individual sport. As the tennis captain, I lead by example, but I also work with my teammates to improve and push each other to do the best we can. We are able to work together and encourage each other during practices and matches. During singles competitions, each player is usually on court by themselves, but each and every one of our voices can be heard to cheer and support each other through the games. Working as a team we are able to accomplish more than just
Whether through sports, business, or family, nearly everyone has at one time or another has been part of a team. Teams are every where and if one plans on succeeding in business in today 's workforce, they need to get used to it as it appears that teams are here to stay. Not every team though is productive. Very often teams end up performing poorly or result in internal conflict that gets out oh hand to the point that nothing gets done. Organizations both small and large recognize the benefits of good teamwork. In fact, the amount of money spent on education related to learn how to perform well as a team has likely never been higher. It takes a special group of individuals in a unique environment to work well
Working in a group to achieve a high quality group project can be one of people’s most difficult school experiences. Working in a group is tough because there is often someone who does not pull their own weight. “There are five stages to group development, adjourning, forming, storming, performing, and norming” (John & Wiley pg 166). Christine’s group from the Case Study the Forgotten Group Member is in between the Storming and Norming Stages. The Storming Stage “is dealing with tensions and defining group tasks,” while the Norming Stage is dealing with high emotionality and tension among the group members” (John & Wiley pg. 166). Christine and her group could have had better
There is a saying that many hands make light work. The essence of this statement is that more can be achieved as a collective than individually. We all have different skills, knowledge and personal attributes. By utilizing all of these different aspects in a team, more ideas can be generated. As more ideas are generated, more creative solutions are generated, leading to better results. It is amazing the amount of support that is created in teams, especially when the going gets tough. People will often go to what seems like extreme lengths when they know that they can rely on the support and encouragement of the team. Never underestimate the significance of this in
It was very satisfying to able to get the kids to understand the importance of some of the attributes mentioned before, especially the teenaged girls. Majority of the team are females, and it warmed our hearts to see the little but helpful impact we made on them. It is crucial for teenage girls to understand the importance of teamwork and confidence in this day and age. Society teaches girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. Girls are raised to see each other as competitors for the attention of men, not for jobs or accomplishments. It is up to us as women to see the girls of younger generations, that we should not see each other as competitors in any way shape or form. We must have the confidence in ourselves and each other, to be able to work together in the workplace and to see each other has
We are a small team with huge responsibilities. We can neither operate as individuals nor can we wear one hat. Everyone on the team has a huge task and purpose and the team requires every member to successfully perform our mission. Teamwork is the key to our success. If we operate as a team there is nothing we cannot accomplish or conquer.
Teamwork can be achieve when people are willing to open their mindset and be willing to understand the differences of others. Being open allows a person to know and understand a persons for who they are. People that are open minded try not to judge others but try to understand where they’ re coming from. It reminded me of Santara story because has disabilities and yet she is able to attend college and has a great friend that supports her. Her friend is open and excepting of how who Santara is. I loved at the end, how Santara said she was not the wheelchair but the person in the wheelchair. Having an open mind allows people to see people as humans and not of objectives that is
In my many years in working for the state of Georgia, I have worked in several groups, but the one that stands out the planning committee that I was serving on with my co-worker. We were trying to organize a non-profit organization called It takes a Village. We had a rough start but we worked to together and everyone understood the main goal and we all got assigned certain duties and once we complete the assigned task we, always assisted the other team members so that we get the job done.
As a student of Santa Ana College, I have recently had the privilege to work on a group project. Our group assignment based upon making a postcard for our school. In which this highlights the importance of one of the facilities that Santa Ana College provides for the students. As a group, we choose the Child Care Center as our topic for the postcard. As I worked in the group, I felt respected and valued. I felt that my group volunteered and contributed equally. We decided that two of us would work on the postcard and the other two would work on the essay. As we continued with our project, we divided the work evenly in order to finish on time. My group and I had different tasks in order, and we worked together afterschool
When working with a large task it is helpful to have a plan of action. There are usually many steps and much involvement is necessary for production and or operation. Because of this, it is helpful to have a helping hand. Once team members have been selected and plans are complete it is then necessary to think about who will be better suited for each type of function. Often times, a majority of these functions overlap and involve one another and team members need to work together. That is when teamwork comes in handy. Without teamwork many of the largest projects could not be complete and possible. They are an essential part of business.
Leadership, teamwork and sportsmanship are very important qualities for a sports team but can also be applied to the real world as well. Working as a team can help you accomplish many goals that you would think were not possible at first. In January of 2015, my teammates and I set up a can shake to raise money for our high school football team. Each of us stood outside to respectfully ask for donations in the cold weather. With those donations, we raised enough money to fund necessities for the program. The effort was worth it and my team ended up making the playoffs for the first time in a long time.
The group I have been working with currently is the group I used in doing the self-assessment in chapter eight. I scored an eleven which is in the effective teamwork category. This group is a group of three married couple, all who are officers (pastors) of The Salvation Army. Lussier, & Achua stated in their book that all teams are groups, but not all groups are teams. (2013, p.278) Our group is definitely a team working with the common goal to run a week long bible/leadership camp. Each of us has been put in charge of different areas of this camp, such as; decorations, music, snacks, bible studies, and devotionals. Collective as a group we all live hours away from each other, one couple lives in North Platte, Cape Girardeau, and Detroit.
Teams are more than just groups of people assembled in the same area, they are a collection of individuals dedicated to a common purpose and with a series of detailed performance targets, working together with complementary skills. Teams of people are encountered in various scenarios, not just in the workplace, but also throughout life, such as sports, associations, charities and voluntary services.
Working with more people is a bit complicated, but all it takes is well communication and teamwork. Throughout the four hours at Make-A-Wish, there were times when we just sat around not being efficient due to the lack amount of work. My friends didn’t want to hold signs because of the cold, but I was able to persuade them because they were bored. We went and it became fun because we did a little dance with it. Besides, we got many people to change their tires and I felt tremendous. We were fulfilling the wishes of many children. Not to mention, facilitating a club was about as easy just a little bit tougher since it is dealing with many more people. As I was able to manage this just as easy. I was specifically in charge of a room with activities. About every thirty to forty minutes I would walk around and make sure everything is flowing along. Moreover, I also made sure everyone was focused on their task and not horse playing while kids were out. Altogether, facilitating a group is successful with the help of each member and great communication skills will enhance the pace
