It’s time to let that go and to look at teamwork in a critical light as a benefit to help us in a variety of ways.

The Lone Wolf Won’t Get Far

“Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” — Vince Lombardi

By all means we shouldn’t be depending entirely on other people to do everything for us. There should be some level of dependability on ourselves to bolster ourselves too.

There is a wealth of knowledge from those individuals that you otherwise wouldn’t have access to on your own.

Teams Solve Problems Faster

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” — Phil Jackson

When you have a good quality team, you’ll be able to deal with problems faster.

When a team is formed you have a collective pool of knowledge and experiences to make that a possibility.

The longer the people work and grow in a particular field, the more they have gone through problems and grew from the experiences.

One Person Flourishes, The Group Flourishes

“Collaboration allows teachers to capture each other’s fund of collective intelligence.” — Mike Schmoker

Part of that is due to the small victories that we have achieved over the past year since we’ve been setting weekly goals.

When something works, people talk about their experiences and what they are learning.
