when was the last time that you worked with a team?
Do you like to work or study with others or just by yourself?
what’s the most important thing for teamwork?
do you like to be a leader?
Let me see, just during the summer vacation, I took my first part-time job in a restaurant, which has around 20 employee. we worked together for almost two months. It was really valuable and unforgettable experience for me.
Personally speaking, I guess I prefer to work or study with a group of people rather than studying on my own. There are some benefits that worth a mention. For example, I can get more ideas and build up my communication skills.
I guess the communication between team members should be far more central. It is known to us that communication effectiveness between team member can enhance our efficiency in working or studying. In addition, it also can decrease the misunderstanding between team members.
Well, to be honest, I really want be a leader, but the fact is that being a leader is not my strong suit. personally speaking, i think a leaders should be someone with vision and born leadership, but unfortunately, i was not born with these qualities.
Teamwork and Cooperation
English has a number of words closely related to teamwork and cooperation: ways people can work together in groups to achieve their goals. Five others are collaboration, coordination, contribution, partnership, and participation.
Ways of Working Together
cooperation: 2 people fitting puzzle pieces together
1. Collaboration is literally 'working together' toward a common goal. It can involve two or more people or groups, and is usually more structured and coordinated than cooperation.
(There is another, negative meaning of collaboration: working together with the enemies of one's country. For example, during World War II the Germans used local people to run the governments of countries they invaded. Those French, Norwegian, or other people who helped the Germans against their own countrymen were called "collaborators," and were hated as traitors to their country.)
2. Cooperation is voluntarily working together more informally, perhaps offering mutual help so groups or individuals can reach related goals.
3. Coordination is organizing the work of different individuals or groups so it will all fit together and reach the planned goal.
4. A contribution is something given to a common effort. People can contribute money, products, services, or time to their community or a group or cause they believe in.
5. A team is a group of people working together on a common project, each having responsibilities and a part to contribute to the whole. Teams are especially common in sports and at work (where several people may be assigned to the same project for a long period of time.)
6. Networking is more informal-- meeting with others that share interests to see if mutually beneficial relationships may grow.
7. Participation means being involved in some kind of activity with other people-- whether collaborating cooperating, networking, being on a team, or coordinating the efforts of others in the group.
Businesses: Working Together (or Alone)
There are three major types of businesses in the United States from a legal viewpoint.
1. A sole proprietorship is a business owned and run by one individual (though he or she may have employees.)
2. A partnership is a business run by two or more individuals cooperatively.
3. A corporation is a business owned by a group of stockholders and run by a Board of Directors. There are legal advantages to incorporating-- the company’s losses and liabilities do not belong to the individuals involved, so there is less risk to the stockholder owners.
