Team oriented people are most effective and efficient when working in a team
setting. A team-oriented person works collaboratively with a team in order to
achieve a goal, sharing workload and tasks according to the strengths of each
team member. A team works together cohesively, creating a positive atmosphere and
supporting each other to achieve a common goal.
A team-oriented person will do all in their power to achieve team goals, however,
a company’s culture can be the biggest influence on trust and transparency within
a team. Teamwork can lead to higher ideation through brainstorming and mutual
creativity and support, and therefore innovation if there is a foundation of
trust and transparency.
While organisations espouse the value of teamwork and collaboration, rewards are
often still on an individual level and therefore do not encourage teamwork. If
incentivized correctly they are able to leverage not only the individual
strengths of their employees but also the team collectively, which great than the
sum of individual efforts.
