As famed anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Behind every well-functioning office is a team that works well together. Even jobs that are largely performed individually can benefit from the added support of co-workers. But strengthening a team of very different people is no easy task.

As the saying goes, many hands make lighter work. By dividing up a task among several people, things tend to get completed more quickly than if completed alone.
When working together, team members tend to feed off of one another’s energy and enthusiasm. Also, when one team member lags, another team member can pick up the slack to help get the job done. As a result, teams tend to put forth more energy communally than team members would if working individually.
Each member of your team brings different strengths, experiences and perspectives to the table. By collaborating, you can draw upon the collective attributes of the team to produce better, richer results.
When working on a project, we could all use someone to bounce ideas off of to make sure we’re moving in the right direction. A little constructive criticism from a group of trusted co-workers can greatly improve the outcome of the project.
When an employee works alone on a project, you run the risk of losing the fruits of that employee’s labor if he or she must leave the organization. By assigning multiple people to a project, you ensure that several people, not just one, are informed about what’s going on with the project.
When people are unhappy in their jobs, they tend not to put as much energy into their work. Having people around you that contribute positively to your work and lend you support when you need it helps boost morale. And with higher morale comes higher production.
