Teamwork - United we Triumph 30 October 2010

In any field, be it sports, education, politics or for that matter, management, the main objective is to always set your goals and achieve them. But no matter how good or brilliant an individual is, any task within an organization, for its successful completion, needs to be done by the team as a whole. The knowledge of an individual is important but unless it is finely tuned with the help of a team, its force is not achieved to its potential. Having people from different backgrounds, having various skills would not be valuable until they are fused together into a team, thereby maximizing their potentials. Although by definition, a group of individuals together is called as a team. But for any team to be successful, team spirit, assistance and cohesiveness is the key factor for success.
