I am going to run a part by part series on Team Work this period. But then in this piece, we are going to look at the importance of team work in an organization.
TEAM AND TEAM WORK
A team is a group of persons who work together in other to achieve a common goal/objective in an organization.
Team work is the coming together of team members who bring their ideas and skills together to solve a specific organizational task/problems, in a bid to achieve organizational goals. Hence, when team members work together in a project to achieve a common goal in an organization, that is team work.
Talent wins games, but team work and intelligence wins championship.
None of us is as smart as all of us.
