Throughout our daily lives we all have been part of a team. Whether it is in sports , at work or in social communities, the importance of being part of a cohesive team plays a vital part in everyday life.
Why is being part of a team but more specifically a cohesive team so important? Because while being a part of some teams might be, stressful, demanding or tense , being a part of a cohesive team and cooperating together can result in an increased efficiency, productivity, communications, work contentment and morale which increases the productivity of the team as a whole and ultimately leads to more overall success. Individuals on a cohesive team tend to focus more on the entire group rather than their individual selves and are more motivated to work towards the team goal.
To be able to work as a cohesive team means that not only is the common goal of the team is achieved but everyone that is a part of the team feels like they have had an impact on the overall success of the team. Individuals that are part of a cohesive team tend to have a tendency to focus on the group’s achievements and goals rather than their own.
How can we build a cohesive team? Well we must firstly understand how each team member works within the group and identify what their team member’s strengths and weaknesses. By doing so, we can effectively compensate and assist those who are lacking in certain areas, ensuring that there are no vulnerabilities and shortcomings within the team.
Next, team members must also learn to develop trust and communicate with one another openly which results in a healthy team dynamic which is important because a healthy team dynamic leads team members to be more satisfied and therefore being more productive whereas an unhealthy team dynamic can lead to internal conflict and consequently result in a lack of success. Lastly, a team needs to establish clear and achievable goals and objectives to work towards and establish what each member’s role is on the team.
