Human being is a social animal. We cannot live in this world without supporting each other. In order to support each other, we should remain trustworthy with the people who surround us. Trust and a common goal will help in developing team spirit.
We can consider our fist as an example for understanding the idea of team spirit. All our fingers are not alike and it is not strong if it’s used separately but when all the fingers join together, the power is much more. This shows the importance of teamwork. Likewise, each of us in this world is given unique talents which actually can be used in developing our country with the slogan “United we stand, divided we fall.”
We never fail to appreciate the effort taken by a team since the outcome will definitely be more than what we would’ve been expecting. This is because while working in a team, you will have opinions, skills and ideas from everyone in the team which can be clubbed together which results in team work. Team work will also help in improving the relationship between the teammates which helps in the development of individual beings too.
Team work often reminds me about the adage “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” Another instance for team work can be our family. At least once in a month, we all will spend time in cleaning our home. This is not done alone. All the members of the family will be doing it together to make it more effective and a family that does all these together will obviously be a family that stays together. Team work, thus, should begin at our home in order to make children understand that it is something that is needed for the rest of our lives.
One of the famous activities that were done by a team leader in order to make his team effective is by calling them all together, and he made them play a game. Each of them was given balloons to blow it and write their names on it without bursting the balloons. A few of the balloons busted, and they were given a second chance from which 30 of them went into the second round. In the second round, they were asked to enter a room full of balloons, and they had to pick up the balloons with their names, time limit was given for them to finish off their task. At the end of the second round, none of them were able to find their own balloon. And since none of them could find their balloon, everyone got into the third round, where again they were asked to enter into the same room and each of them were told to choose balloons and even if it had other people’s name, they were told to give it to them. A few time later, they all had their own balloons in their hands. From this, the team member made them understand the fact that with teamwork, everything is possible.
Thus, it’s been long time since the concept of teamwork came up. Mixing random people and creating a team won’t do any good. Factors like ideas, skills, behaviours, etc, matters in creating a team and expecting an outcome. Each of them should be comfortable in working for the team, so that the concept of teamwork will be successful.
