    What do you think is the key to a successful team?

    I think the key success factors for a team are: a common purpose ( raising a family, building a company, ...), and team members treating each other with respect.

    Being a successful team requires being able to work together with others for a common goal or interest--someone on a team has to be content NOT being the star but rather a part of something bigger than themselves.

    The ideal illustration of teamwork would be an orchestra.  No one instrument makes the music but rather it is all of the instruments working together to make one beautiful sound.

    I agree with the other answers that mutual respect and shared goals are important. However, no-one (at the time I'm writing this) has commented on what I think are the two most vital factors: 1, each team member should have a designated role or responsibility, and 2, there must be a team leader. To me, that's the key.

    It's fashionable to say there's no "I" in team; and teamwork ceratinly demands an element of egalitarianism, but it's equally true that 'motion isn't progress'. Vast amounts of time can be wasted on discussion that just travels in a circle. Somebody has to be responsible for channelling, and directing the team input if anything is to be achieved.

    eg; in her answer, duffsmom has said "The ideal illustration of teamwork would be an orchestra. No one instrument makes the music but rather it is all of the instruments working together to make one beautiful sound."

    I'd say; not without a conductor.
