Introduction

A team plays a crucial role in every organization, be it small or big if you have a great team you can achieve your goals efficiently.

Why I am saying so?

Let me answer this with a question.

Have you ever thought, what will happen if one of your body parts will stop functioning properly?

Suppose you are very good at painting but unfortunately due to a tragic accident you lost your sight. You can't able to paint anymore.

Your entire body works as a team to accomplish your goals.
Likewise, we can get many examples from nature as well, from a tiny ant to large orcas, from a pack of wolves to flock of geese everyone works together to fetch their goal.

Learn Team work From Honeybees

This eusocial flying insect is not only helping us in the pollination of many flowers and fruits but also teach us a great lesson of teamwork. A hive of honey bees can consist of up more than 10000 bees and they work as a cross-functional team, they work with proper coordination. Each of them has a predetermined job. The queen lays eggs, the worker bees construct the hive and provide food, and the drones are there to make sure that the hive keeps on growing. They have defined roles and responsibilities and all of them contribute to strengthen and grow the hive.

"Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships." – Michael Jordan

How to Build a strong Team

  • Knowledge sharing: It was rightly said by Mr.Booker T. Washington if you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. Sharing your knowledge with others will provide more exposure to your talent and helping your teammates helps you to build your own organization.
  • Training: Proper training is highly essential for building a strong team. Hone their skills by providing them intensive knowledge-based training.
  • Upgrade their skills: As change is the only constant we need to keep upgrading our knowledge. In order to sustain in the competitive world. You need to constantly upgrade your teams by introducing them to different knowledge-based sessions.
  • Provide them a fun-filled office culture no one wants to work by sitting on a pressure cooker. Occasionally arrange some exciting outdoor games, go for outings in a year. People love these things to relax their lives.
  • Motivate: Motivation is an important life skill. The reason it’s significant is that every person on this earth is different and has a purpose. To achieve your purpose well, your team has to be motivated to work towards your goals which helps your dreams become a reality.

  • Make them believe that all of you have one vision and one mission and never allow any sort of negativity in the system that hamper your productivity.

Conclusion

If you really have brilliant ideas then hire and build a mastermind team to execute them properly.No one in the history of the world had ever achieved alone without a good support system.

      Team members work together toward a common goal keeping aside all the differences and adopting new approaches. When working closely as a team, members share their views and get to know each other well. This prevents conflict and increases the bonding among them. Positivity plays a crucial role in reaching the goal successfully. A well-bonded, dedicated, displined team can bring about wonderful results.

      The points you've explained in this article are extremely valuable and practical. With a support of a team, one can achieve and turn impossible goals into possible ones.

      As Subhash Chandra Bose once said, give me only 100 self-motivated, and passionate youngsters, and we can together change the country.

      A team can do wonders where the same number of individuals separately cannot do the same over a period of a long time. As you rightly pointed out, engaging teams to do positive activities can bring development very fast. Team motivating leaders are found rare and we must spare the team breakers cautiously to save disasters. You have aptly given examples of honeybees and young kids, Ms Suchismita.
