Joining a team is a rewarding experience as teamwork can teach you multiple skills that will make your life richer.  It can teach you how to be a leader, follow directions, be accountable, and how to work with others to achieve a common goal.  Plus, many people who join a team end up building lifelong friendships with the people they meet.


Teamwork teaches you how to problem solve and find common ground with others when you don’t necessarily see eye-to-eye.  Conflicts are bound to happen on a team at one point or another and more than likely a compromise will have to be reached.  This means working to find a solution that everyone on the team can stand behind, even if it wasn’t what they originally wanted.  Anyone that has siblings has probably already come across this scenario where they can’t agree on something with someone else.  Siblings will argue incessantly about something like what to watch on TV without coming to any resolution until finally, after listening to the bickering for long enough, fed up parents finally tell the kids to come to a solution or no one gets to watch any TV.  Fearful of losing the privilege altogether, the siblings quickly come to an agreement.  This kind of situation actually builds problem-solving skills and helps people develop an ability to negotiate.


Teams come in handy when needing to boost morale as they can bounce positive energy off of each other and elevate each other when one feels down.  Teams also come in handy when there is a task that is bigger than one person can handle.  “Many hands make light work,” as the saying goes, and it’s true!  The best thing about being part of a team is having other people there to help you when you are overwhelmed or not at your best.  Teammates that are dependable really help make everything run more smoothly and successfully.  If everyone knows their part and does their best to achieve their goals, then the whole team will succeed and become stronger together.  More importantly, teammates can be there for each other when one of them isn’t feeling their best; let’s face it-we all have bad days and as part of a team everyone can still come out victorious by working together.  Having a team that you know well and trust to have your back is essential to the success of a team.  Everyone must know their part and be responsible for following through and achieving results.


Regardless of the reason that motivates you to join a team, you will find many benefits from it and ways to evolve as an individual while part of a team.  Not only that, but you will have friends to turn to that you will be able to rely on to have your back.
