Becoming a better team player

"If you take out the team in teamwork, it's just work. Now who wants that"

-asked Matthew Stover

Honestly, who wants that? The answer is nobody? I think yes, neither the employers nor the employees. The objective, say, to reduce the workload, to get different inputs from different individuals, to save time… whatever it maybe, both the parties want it. That is, the corporates who hunt for manpower, or us, who work under them to make a living.

But working as a team isn’t always as easy as it’s treated. One might not get the appreciation and reward he or she deserves for their work and sincerity with which they did it, while some others might get it even without doing half the hard work. It can sometimes leave you dissatisfied.

Then there can be individuals who you just can’t stand or respect, who never gives you the respect you deserve as a person or a colleague, there can be ideas and ideologies you just can’t accept, there can be clashes, things can get ugly. It’s all part of the game. It’s all part of the teamwork. It’s all part of being human. It’s all part of life. Accept it. That is, without doubt, the first step towards being a great team player.

Once you starts accepting it, things can get easier. And the next step is to better yourself as a team player. The shortcomings you see in other people, don’t forget it, they will also be seeing the same in you. Your thoughts shouldn’t always go unidirectional, try thinking from others perspectives as well. This can help you get better as a person, a social being and a team worker. Not only think, make sure you act upon it.

Next is to accept the differences and respect each and everyone’s part in getting the job done. No matter how much salary they receives, how dignified their job is for the society, how much it mean to the whole process, you certainly can’t reach the goal without that particular person’s input. So, everyone in the team needs to be appreciated and respected.

Another important aspect in teamwork is proper communication. And without proper communication, there’s no teamwork. Only that can get all the tasks go hand in hand and coordinated. So every one of the members of a team should communicate with each other and the team leaders as much as possible.

And more than the team, sometimes the success and failure of a team is in the hands of the executive or officials who constitute the team or lead the teamwork. It’s their duty to put the correct pieces together, that is, the right people here. It’s also their duty to mould them as a team, encourage them do better, set a goal and assign each of them with  specific tasks and also reward each and every one of them so that they feel satisfied.

That’s why hiring the right team player is always important for corporates and organizations than hiring the best talent out there.
