Remember that old axiom 'Two heads are better than one'? Or how about the more modern saying, 'Teamwork makes the dream work'? People working together can achieve much more than individuals working alone. But what makes a team effective?
Effective teams are made up of members who have the skills necessary to accomplish their goals. Everyone brings their own viewpoints and knowledge to the group. Members exchange in open communication, using active listening and responding. Goals are reasonable and realistic and have a clear time frame for completion. Tasks are divided so that no one is overwhelmed by responsibility. All members are accountable for achieving goals and are motivated to do well. Individuals acknowledge one another's achievements. In the most effective teams, co-workers trust and support one another.
