Does Teamwork, Work?

Teamwork [teem-wurk] noun: 1. Cooperative or coordinated effort on the part of a group of persons acting together as a team or in the interests of a common cause; 2. Work done with a team --- Dictionary.com

Individual Versus Teamwork
Assistance, collaboration, cooperation, partnership, union, unity --- all of these are synonymous to teamwork. Working with others and helping them finish their tasks are evidently signs of teamwork. Cooperation becomes a vital part; however, teamwork must not end there. We must also learn to understand, to get along with, and most especially, to respect our team mates. To be a good team member means you have to cover up and support one another without being asked, whole-heartedly, and sincerely.

Team Development
In a newly formed dance group, you and your group members may all agree to perform a single dance routine, but that doesn't guarantee of winning the competition. Because as a new group, you are still somewhat going through stages, you are forming as one. While you're still in your forming stage, you might be restrained, timid, and quite unsure. But as you try to open up and feel a sense of belongingness, you'll most probably go through the storming stage. In this particular team development stage, you must learn to work through each of your differences, tensions, and conflict.

Once you know how to mix well with your fellow group members, you must now study how to combine everyone's idea or input. This stage is called norming. Norming is simply focusing in problem solving and thinking of ways on how to improve your teamwork.

Last is the performing stage wherein your dance group is acting and / or interacting solidly and effortlessly. During this stage, you can clearly see how dynamic, energetic, and how productive your group has become.

Having attained the performing stage, you might ask yourself, "How can I speed up our team's growth for us to be a superior team?" Obviously, starting with a clear mission and vision is a must. Just like a dance group, you must have a dance routine, complete membership and attendance every practice session, and most specially a competent, capable, and proficient group leader.

Does it work?
As a person, you must both be an independent-player and a team-player. Some things may be better done alone, but some things are also best done when you have a team to help. After all, no man is an island, right? Still not convinced? Well, I'll let Hellen Keller talk you through this:

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
