I would like to share some of the key points on ‘teamwork’, extracted from a book, that i have recently read.

What are the key elements to ensure effective teamwork?
  • Adaptable – Flexibility is key. Teamwork and personal rigidity just don’t mix. 
  • Collaborative – Collaboration is more important
    than cooperation. Cooperation is working together agreeably whilst collaboration
    is working together effectively and each person brings the best for the team.
  • Communication – Without communication, there is
    no relationship. Without relationship, there is only a collection of individuals
    and not a TEAM.
  • Trust – Until everyone in the team is willing to
    trust each other, progress towards team’s success will be limited.
  • Commitment – “Individual commitment to a group effort – that makes a team work,  a company work, a society work, a civilization work” – Vince Lombardi.
  • Clear goals – Set clear and reasonable short and
    long-term goals, so everyone in the team will understand and work together to
    achieve it.

Coming together is a beginning
Keeping together is progress
Working together is success – Henry Ford

Thank You & Wassalam.

    1. tapi aiza tengok kebanyakan agensi kerajaan ketua memang menjadi bos dan hanya tahu memberi arahan, anak buah hanya berkata, "saya yang menurut perintah".. berbeza dengan swasta ketua sama-sama turun padang dengan anak-anak buah untuk siapkan kerja..
