We can accomplish much more as a team than as individual:
Teamwork is all around us: sports teams, emergency rooms, fire and rescue, restaurants, airlines, hotels, etc. Often the difference between the winning teams and the losing teams, or the best companies and the worst companies, has a lot to do with their teamwork and the synergy that teamwork creates. Everyone involved has to be focused on the team's success rather than their own success.
Elements of a successful team include: a sense of purpose and shared values; strong skill development with measured improvement and constant feedback; and regular rewards and recognition. There is a special energy that is created when teams function perfectly together, which results in magnificent results that other wise could not be created.
