“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
– Phil Jackson
The Discussion Forum at NCM met on 7th October, 2023. The theme of discussion was Team work. Teamwork is the process of working collaboratively with a group of people to achieve a common goal. It is an essential aspect of any organization or project and is vital for success. When people work together, they can combine their unique skills and strengths to achieve a more significant outcome than they could individually.
Effective teamwork requires communication, cooperation, and trust. Members of a team must be willing to listen to each other’s ideas, share their thoughts and opinions, and work together to find solutions to problems. Good teamwork also involves recognizing and respecting each other’s differences, and being willing to compromise when required.
The discussion revolved around the following points:
- Necessity of a team, why is it required?
- The factors to be considered while forming a team
- The ground rules in a team
- How can one make a team efficient and effective?
Teamwork is everything in the modern workplace. An effective communication, openness, trusting each other to do their part as well as clearly outlining roles and responsibilities is the key for the success of teamwork. A team’s effectiveness relies heavily on a balance between clearly established goals and clear communication.
The theme for the next discussion is Faith and Trust.
“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”
