Benefits of Team Work
Be it work, play, or entertainment, togetherness is what makes it enjoyable, easy, and fun. Team work has become an essential element of any activity. Be it schools, companies, social organizations, religious organizations, political organizations, or be it your get togethers involving friends, family, or acquaintances, every activity seems to require some sort of team play. Thus the importance of team work has become undeniable for social, political, cultural, religious, educational, and economic development.
Different people have different skills and possess different perspectives of every activity. Therefore any activity that involves team work would benefit from the various creative thoughts and inspirations of different people. By making use of different thoughts and perspectives, varied ideas can be used to find an array of solutions that will ultimately help find the best solution or a new solution for an old problem.
People working as individuals fall into the monotony of their jobs and this lead to dissatisfaction and under-performance in the long run. However, when people work in teams, the interaction in itself generates enthusiasm and any issues are resolved by inputs from different people, making even small tasks enjoyable and interesting. This leads to better enthusiasm and energy levels among team members leading to better productivity.
It is impossible for one individual to possess all the knowledge and skills required to complete any job. For example, let’s look at the construction of a house. When one individual builds a house all on his own, besides the long duration and the risk of the construction stopping mid-way, there is also the risk of faults and damages in various aspects of the house. However, when different individuals with specialized skill and knowledge come together to do the different jobs, the house will be completed in a much shorter duration and the end product would definitely be a house that is beautiful and inhabitable.
Team work definitely finishes tasks faster than if an individual were to slog at it. The speed is not only because of different hands coming together, but also because of different minds working on the varied aspects of each task. When a problem occurs there are different people thinking of it from varied perspectives and thus they are able to arrive at a solution faster than if one person were to try resolving the issue.
Team work leads to camaraderie between team members. This not only leads to better social relationships, but also acts as a support when things go wrong, both in the work and in the personal front.
6.Distribution of work:
Imagine having to conduct a wedding or your company’s annual meeting on your own. You’ll never be able to complete all the tasks before its due and the greater chances are you will mess up the whole activity. However, if you create a team for the task and assign activities to each member of the team, you will definitely be successful in making the event an unforgettable and successful event. Distributing work not only reduces each individual’s burden, but also increases responsibility and ensures better commitment to completing the task individually and as a whole.
It is because these benefits of team work have been fully understood by schools, organizations, and even nations that they encourage team work in all activities. Everyone has come to understand that only many hands and minds working together can bring about all round development to build their organizations and nations.
