  1. 1. First of all we need to know what is a TEAM???
  2. 2. What is a Team? •Two or more individuals with a high degree of interdependence geared toward the achievement of a goal or the completion of a task. •Teams make decisions, solve problems, provide support, accomplish missions, and plan their work.
  3. 3. TEAM • A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO SHARE A COMMON NAME, MISSION, HISTORY, SET OF GOALS OR OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTATIONS. • A ‘TEAM’S’ PERFORMANCE INCLUDES BOTH INDIVIDUAL RESULTS AND WHAT WE CALL ‘COLLECTIVE WORK-PRODUCTS’. • A ‘COLLECTIVE WORK-PRODUCT’ IS WHAT TWO OR MORE MEMBERS MUST WORK ON TOGETHER….(IT) REFLECTS THE JOINT, REAL CONTRIBUTION OF TEAM MEMBERS.

  5. 5. What makes a good team? • Mutual trust • Mutual support • Communications • Team objectives • Conflict resolution
  6. 6. What makes a good team? • An open, pleasant environment • Well planned and structured meetings • The support of superiors

  8. 8. Benefits of Good Teambuilding • Problem solving becomes far more effective because all team members can offer ideas from their own experience • Since the team works closely together and encourages communication, there is rarely a concern over conflicts
  9. 9. Benefits of Good Teambuilding • Each member of team clearly understands the objectives and expectations of both the team and its individual members. • Within a well-built team, members are motivated and inspired to achieve goals and maintain high levels of productivity
  10. 10. Benefits of Good Teambuilding • Success within the team offers opportunity for reward and recognition on two levels, from both individual and team accomplishments • Team work encourages disciplined work habits • Team work and productivity go hand in hand

  12. 12. Team Disadvantages • Conflict may develop between team members and other teams • Team may be time-consuming due to need for coordination and consensus • Team can stymie creativity and inhibit goo decision if “group think” becomes prevalent
  13. 13. Team Disadvantages • Evaluation and rewards may be perceived as lees powerful • Less flexibility may be experienced in personal replacement or transfer • “Free-riding” within the team may occur
  14. 14. Types of Teams • Problem Solving teams: members share ideas or offer suggestions on how work processes and methods can be improved; although they rarely have the authority to unilaterally implement any of their suggested actions • Self managed Teams: are groups of employees who perform highly interdependent tasks and take on many of the responsibilities of their former supervisors • Cross functional teams: employees from the same hierarchical level, but from different work areas, who come together to accomplish a task • Virtual Teams: teams that use computer technology to tie together physically dispersed members in order to achieve a common goal
  15. 15. Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. Andrew Carnegie
  16. 16. Teamwork…..Why? Rationale for a Team Approach • Teams are a part of everyone's life. You're a member of a family team, a staff team, school, health care and community teams. • So it's appropriate that you understand how to function effectively as a team member.
  17. 17. Teamwork .... What Is It? • A team is defined as a group (a collection of people) who interact to achieve a common goal, but an effective, well-functioning team is much more than this. • Participants in an effective team care about the group's well-being. They skillfully combine appropriate individual talents with a positive team spirit to achieve results. • Regardless of whether the program effort is that of an individual, several individuals or the entire county office unit, a climate of teamwork can exist.
  18. 18. Teamwork .... What Is It? • A variety of working relationships exist among staff. You might view these relationships as dimensions (levels) of involvement or as a continuum of relationships among agents. As you move along the continuum, the degree of communication, integration and commitment seems to increase. • Greater interpersonal skills are necessary if you are to work together effectively at more complex levels. As your skills develop, more options become available to you regarding the dimension of involvement which you might select for any particular program effort.

  35. 35. Now here is an another story which tells us how a goal can be achieved easily and effectively if we work as a TEAM…
  36. 36. Good old lessons in teamwork from an age-old fable The Tortoise And The Hare
  37. 37. Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had an argument about who was faster. I’m the fastest runner. That’s not true. The fastest runner is me!
  38. 38. Ok, let’s have a race. Fine! They decided to settle the argument with a race. They agreed on a route and started off the race.
  39. 39. The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for some time. Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise, he thought he'd sit under a tree for some time and relax before continuing the race. Poor guy! Even if I take a nap, he could not catch up with me.
  40. 40. He sat under the tree and soon fell asleep.
  41. 41. The tortoise plodding on overtook him and soon finished the race, emerging as the undisputed champ.
  42. 42. The hare woke up and realized that he'd lost the race.
  43. 43. The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race. This is the version of the story that we've all grown up with.
  44. 44. The story continues …
  45. 45. The hare was disappointed at losing the race and he did some soul-searching. He realized that he'd lost the race only because he had been overconfident, careless and lax. If he had not taken things for granted, there's no way the tortoise could have beaten him. Why did I lose the race?
  46. 46. Can we have another race? Ok. So he challenged the tortoise to another race. The tortoise agreed.
  47. 47. This time, the hare went all out and ran without stopping from start to finish. He won by several miles.
  48. 48. The moral of the story? Fast and consistent will always beat the slow and steady. If you have two people in your organization, one slow, methodical and reliable, and the other fast and still reliable at what he does, the fast and reliable chap will consistently climb the organizational ladder faster than the slow, methodical chap. It's good to be slow and steady; but it's better to be fast and reliable.
  49. 49. But the story doesn't end here …
  50. 50. The tortoise did some thinking this time, and realized that there's no way he can beat the hare in a race the way it was currently formatted. How can I can win the hare?
  51. 51. He thought for a while, and then challenged the hare to another race, but on a slightly different route. The hare agreed. Sure! Can we have another race? This time we’ll go through a different route.
  52. 52. They started off. In keeping with his self-made commitment to be consistently fast, the hare took off and ran at top speed until he came to a broad river. The finishing line was a couple of kilometers on the other side of the river. Goal
  53. 53. The hare sat there wondering what to do. In the meantime the tortoise trundled along, got into the river, swam to the opposite bank, continued walking and finished the race. What should I do?
  54. 54. The moral of the story? First identify your core competency and then change the playing field to suit your core competency. In an organization, if you are a good speaker, make sure you create opportunities to give presentations that enable the senior management to notice you. If your strength is analysis, make sure you do some sort of research, make a report and send it upstairs. Working to your strengths will not only get you noticed, but will also create opportunities for growth and advancement.
  55. 55. The story still hasn't ended …
  56. 56. The hare and the tortoise, by this time, had become pretty good friends and they did some thinking together. Both realized that the last race could have been run much better.
  57. 57. So they decided to do the last race again, but to run as a team this time. Hi, buddy. How about doing our last race again? Great! I think we could do it much better, if we two help each other. Hi, buddy. How about doing our last race again?
  58. 58. They started off, and this time the hare carried the tortoise till the riverbank.
  59. 59. There, the tortoise took over and swam across with the hare on his back.
  60. 60. On the opposite bank, the hare again carried the tortoise and they reached the finishing line together. They both felt a greater sense of satisfaction than they'd felt earlier.
  61. 61. The moral of the story? It's good to be individually brilliant and to have strong core competencies; but unless you're able to work in a team and harness each other's core competencies, you'll always perform below par because there will always be situations at which you'll do poorly and someone else does well. Teamwork is mainly about situational leadership, letting the person with the relevant core competency for a situation take leadership.
  62. 62. There are more lessons to be learnt from this story. Note that neither the hare nor the tortoise gave up after failures. The hare decided to work harder and put in more effort after his failure. The tortoise changed his strategy because he was already working as hard as he could. In life, when faced with failure, sometimes it is appropriate to work harder and put in more effort. Sometimes it is appropriate to change strategy and try something different. And sometimes it is appropriate to do both. The hare and the tortoise also learnt another vital lesson. When we stop competing against a rival and instead start competing against the situation, we perform far better.
