Some people consider themselves to be a lone wolf, the odd man out, the rogue elephant, a lone rider… In fact, when given the chance, a lot of people prefer to work alone on projects. Teamwork can be a somewhat undesirable, even intimidating concept to these people. But, this doesn’t change the fact that teamwork is critical especially in the 21st century.
Here are a couple reasons why:
- 86% of managers include “teamwork” as a necessary skill for promotion
- 99.1% of people want to work in a workplace where issues are identified and discusses truthfully and effectively
- 97% of employees and executives think lack of alignment in a team impacts the task/project outcome
- About 75% of employers rate teamwork as extremely important
- About 40% of employees think their co-workers don’t collaborate enough
This is all to say that when it comes to completing a task, teamwork can open many doors or extract additional value. Through working in groups you can achieve unified perspectives, combine the strengths of the individual group members and conduct collective brainstorming. It is important to remember that every single person has a value to add to the group. Through teamwork, you can also strengthen employee relations and increase accountability in the company.
