A subtle art. 

Okay, let’s start the topic by pronouncing a word like “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”, Tough? Indeed it’s tough to pronounce, but this word defines someone/something as “WONDERFUL”. See, the point I want to make by all this façade is that, in life, there are plenty of things that might look complicated from the outside, but they can be as simple as the above example unlike the above-stated example, there could be things in life that can be just opposite to the above situation, like our subject, i.e., TEAMWORK. 

The idea of teamwork is fascinating, like it’s a great bunch of people working in synergy, and they’re producing better outputs than a person, but the question that arises here “Is it this simple?” OR “Do we apprehend the idea of teamwork”, Well, if the above-described process is the perception of teamwork in your mind, I’m gonna say, “YOU’RE WRONG”. Building a team is not a chemistry equation; you cannot just find the right balance of people with different professional skills and HURRAY! you’re done. 

Building a team is far more complicated than finding the right balance of professional skills; it’s more about execution than professional skills, and teams don’t work well without teamwork! And teamwork is important for the success of the business. You might have heard most executives saying, “HIRE BEST,” but I would say hire the right person. Teamwork is all about planning, execution, and defining roles for the individuals on the team because IT IS ABOUT THE TEAM; a team is stronger when everybody delivers to their roles. 

To get the idea of teamwork, let’s take the example of a team sport, e.g., a Football game; every team player has to excel in their role. Defenders aren’t expected to be good shooters, but the shooters alone cannot win the game for the team. 

The value of teamwork is recognized by all the team members working together towards the common objective of winning the game. 

After all:

“Teamwork makes the dream work” 

Now we know what a team is and how different individuals work in synergy and do teamwork, but now the question arises:

Why Do We Need TeamWork? 

The simplest answer to this question could be, Businesses need to thrive, and for that, they need efficiency To achieve that efficiency, teamwork plays a crucial role. Apart from this, there are plenty of other aspects, and teamwork is valued so much. 

  • It Generates New Creative Ideas: We all agree on the fact businesses need new, fresh, creative ideas to grow, and having such unique new perspectives of different members of the team, it would benefit the business overall.
  • Builds Morale: When a person’s work is valued, and that individual realizes that he is contributing to something that produces results and is beneficial to the company. This will result in a strong sense of commitment in every team member.
  • Teamwork Is Efficient Work: When different people collaborate within a group, it helps solve difficult problems more efficiently and easily. Moreover, team members could exchange ideas and develop creative ways of doing things. When work gets divided between different team members, it gets done faster, making the overall business more efficient.
  • Teamwork Can Create Healthy Competition: When different team members work in synergy, it sometimes can give rise to competition between the team members, and when team members tend to maintain healthy competition, it helps the members to have open debates and helps them share their opinion openly. Healthy competition catalyzes improvement and creative ideas that would benefit the business.
  • Group Solidarity: When each member of the team feels the way that he/she is competent enough to contribute to the team goal, it boosts their self-esteem and morale as people, and as a result, members of the team feel connected and driven to achieve the common goal. They don’t just respect one another. They also trust each other and support each other. This results in strong group cohesion.
  • It's Supportive: An independent employee may feel that his/her contribution to the goal will be overlooked, and his/her co-workers could be a hindrance to his work. Teamwork, on the other hand, encourages employees to support each other because there is not any “I” in the team there is a well-balanced “WE” in a team.

Importance of Teamwork In An Organization: 

Due to the above-stated reasons, it becomes obvious for an organization to encourage their employees to work in teams. This would be beneficial to the organization in every aspect. After all, the company is aimed at profitability. 

When all the team members have a sense of attachment and feel connected to the group, it would encourage them to come up with new and great creative ideas and put them on the table without any hesitation. Businesses need great ideas to thrive. 

Apart from this, teamwork ensures the deadline system with different team members having each other back and solving their problems without much managerial interference; in other words, we can say that teamwork promotes self-monitoring. 

It is important for an organization that its employees are emotionally happy, i.e., they don’t consider their work as a liability; teamwork helps maintain this emotional happiness in employees through team members’ mutual respect and honest feedback, thus encouraging high emotional well-being. 

As people with different professional skills work in synergy in a team, it generates an opportunity for every member of the team to learn from others. It leads to resource building, and team members become better equipped with new skills, generating confidence in every team member to face new challenges. New skill sets will always have a positive influence on a company’s growth as well as the individual growth of employees. 

When common goals are given to the team members, they all have a clear mind map and a common goal to work towards. It would encourage them to push their limits to achieve that common goal, and they’ll have their priorities set and wouldn’t be bothered by any hindrance. As said by Jim Collins, author of the best-selling management book “Good to Great “. 

If you have more than three priorities, you don’t have any. 


Teamwork is a subtle art that needs more than a mixture of people with different professional skill sets. It requires planning and execution, and each member plays a crucial role in achieving the common goal. Teamwork means dividing responsibilities, where every person does his bit so that the burden does not go on a single person. 

Teamwork benefits the company in so many ways, ultimately targeting the overall growth of the business; teamwork helps in the growth of mutual respect between team members.
