Teamwork: truism

When I am told about teamwork in a company or a project, I take this with caution. I have not yet met in my professional life an ideal team, well, at least aspiring to this. The most amazing thing is that due to the joint work only 2-3 people from the team believe. The rest of them pretend or, on the contrary, oppose working together. What are the causes of this phenomenon?

Scientists psychologists have long explained to us that there are different types of characters: melancholic, choleric, sanguine, and phlegmatic. Each of of them We have different attitudes towards the world around us, colleagues, work, and even ourselves. There are also individuals who, by definition, cannot work in a team - these are people who are capable of performing mechanical work and do not require the intervention of colleagues from outside. Sometimes it happens when a non-team player gets into a leadership position and tries to take over ALL and DIRECTLY. At that moment, the rest of the staff starts to boil because they have to deal with any issue. to consult take permission from the principal. Delegation of authority is out of the question. As a result, the team or company loses MAIN THING - FLEXIBILITY.

I believe that the main thing in teamwork is the flexibility of each structural unit; only then can we talk about agility and decent work with colleagues from other companies and partners. How to achieve this flexibility? It will arise only when each of the employees respect each other as a specialist, and appreciate the time of each.

I noticed that conflicts often arise in a team, when the level of professionalism varies considerably. It is better to organize two teams, where one will be weaker than to unite employees - the efficiency will be much higher. This is my opinion, of course. Does someone think otherwise?

    Know, and you are right. And these are not even commonplace truths and not everyone understands this, but today in the era of globalization this is a very important thing - to understand all this!

  2. Sergei:

    Great post. All competent and in the case!

    I worked in a department of 2 people and we had a team ... but when I moved to another company where there are 12 people in the department. Here is exactly the situation as described above. Some of the employees work as a team, and some just kicks x ... because they don't care at all. We have one solution: the manager must be able to find an approach to each employee and organize the team, making it flexible

    In general, I agree that there are more conflicts in a team when the level of professionalism is different. Although it can be said not about a greater likelihood of conflict, but rather about a lesser degree of understanding within such a command. But on the other hand, less professional team members have a lot to learn from the pros, get their opinions and can make up their own. And in a weaker team, a moving person is needed, who sets the team's activity, moves it, so that after he leaves or delegates authority, there is no situation of inhibition in the team and thus a greater degree of “filling up” the project. Although for teamwork there is still a bunch of truths, for example, organization of work, motivation of team members in the project, the degree of involvement of each participant, coherence, understanding of project goals, etc. Each moment has its own truism that become clear only in active participation in the project is the team.

  5. Sergey Grebennikov:

    Elena, I think that it is impossible to learn in a team, because there is no time for knowing in such situations. I agree that you can gain experience, but only if everyone in the team really appreciates future professional frames.

  6. Elena:

    So the level of what you want to get from working in a team depends on the goals. But the design work involved teams where the level may vary. But in order to grow the staff it is simply necessary. But an understanding must either come or be born - that experience needs to be passed, especially if there are problems of ready-made specialists. We work in a team on a project, where there is something and who to learn. And after all, there is always someone to learn from and, what's more, what. Otherwise, the experience simply can not convey.

  7. Grachev:

    Conflicts arise when “freaks” appear in the team (excuse me), who consider themselves better than others and spoil the situation in the team. One such can be great to spoil all the good in the team, not once faced.

  8. Pilot:

    My work experience in a team is this: the main thing is the absence of democracy, because otherwise constant debriefing, it is necessary that the leader clearly distributes the work and organizes the group, then everyone is gathered and organized

  9. Helen:

    so what you write about is not a team work. It is also possible to work and lead some projects, but people with this kind of leadership are often good performers, but not initiators. They are always waiting for instructions from the leadership, but do not take the initiative on their own. Plus they take responsibility only for the one that the leadership from above has entrusted to them. And they themselves do not take it, even when necessary. So sometimes it turns out that project managers are not initiative and independent, as they say in the summary.
