Organizations of all types have increasingly recognized that teams deliver more innovation and better business results. You can expect that in your career you will spend a significant amount of your time in teams. In fact, about 54 percent of professionals spend about one-third of their work time in a team setting. Another 34 percent say they spend about half of their work time in a team setting. Yet, just 3 percent of these professionals say they’ve been trained to work in teams.1
Your ability to contribute to and lead teams will provide you with many career opportunities. In fact, excellent team players are often fast-tracked for better positions. Aside from the many career benefits of teams, working in teams can be energizing. It allows you to bond with your colleagues, learn from others, share your ideas, and celebrate together when your team hits big milestones. Working in teams isn’t always easy. It requires that you give up some of your independence. It can be discouraging when team members don’t work together well.
