Introduction
Teams have become very important in organizations and employees are more commonly evaluated as to whether or not they are a “team player.” A team can be defined as a unit of individuals with skills that complement each other and who are committed to a common goal. To work as a team, the “me, myself, and I” approach should be set aside in order to fulfill a specific goal. There are advantages and disadvantages to teamwork. It’s important to have a clearly defined goal and to select a team leader who will have the distinct role of making the teams effective.

A team can develop synergy and the team can achieve goals beyond what an individual can achieve. Team members become self-motivated and empowered and are able to satisfy more needs than if working alone. However, team members might be forced to conform to team standards. Some team members may decide it’s easier to sit idly by and let the others carry the weight. It’s up to the team members and the team leader to encourage each member of the team to contribute fully.

The value of being in a team may become more evident as each team member is encouraged to express their ideas and figure out ways to work together. A team player attributes equal value and weight to each member’s contributions; is respectful towards others, despite differing personalities and opinions; and is willing to pitch in when another team member needs support. A good team is comprised of team members who have a common goal and are willing to compromise their individual needs in order to achieve success as a collective effort.
