Teamwork Makes the Dream WorkGeneral
We hosted a Franchise Recruitment Conference in 2015 for Planet Beach’s Regional Developers with the theme “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.” Since then, I will occasionally make mention of this cliché little rhyme to my coworkers when we all work together to accomplish a big goal. I’ve found this phrase coming to mind more often not only at work, but in my personal life as well. Teamwork is a simple concept, but we easily overlook its benefits when teamwork becomes part of your everyday life.
Here’s my friendly reminder that “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work” with 3 reasons why:
When working as a team, you can achieve some of the greatest results. In areas where you might not have much knowledge or skill, a teammate may excel. It’s important to recognize these strengths. Trust in and rely on your teammates, while allowing them to trust in and rely on you. Delegating tasks according to everyone’s strengths will help you reach that goal in a shorter period of time. The more efficient you are in working together, the more likely you are to reach that goal!
When working as a team, there is an increased sense of responsibility. Your productivity directly affects that of the entire group, and you don’t want to let your team down! This accountability always motivates me to put forth my best effort. We win as a team and lose as a team. With a competitive group of coworkers, family, and friends, we always want to be on the winning team!
When working as a team, we are sometimes more willing to take risks in sharing new and creative ideas. It’s important to establish a sense of comfort among the group and to encourage creativity. I really enjoy the excitement of a work meeting that turns into a brainstorming session. Some of our greatest ideas and innovations at Planet Beach have resulted from these meetings. In the end, everyone takes pride in the part they played and celebrates the success we accomplished as a team effort!
I hope this inspires you to take on any upcoming projects with the help of those around you. Embrace these 3 benefits to accomplish great things by working together as a team.
