Business are using a team approach in the workplace more and more. Teams can be an effective tool to accomplishing organizational goals and objectives.
Teams are effectively used for projects, developing concepts or examining issues. The best teams have a diverse group of individuals. Each individual brings their own knowledge base to the team. As a result, a greater amount of information is collected and the issue can be seen from many viewpoints. Furthermore, individuals who may be subject matter experts, but tend not to speak out, may also have a forum to share their expertise on a team.
Teams also allow organizations to identify future leaders. These leaders are developed through organizing and planning team meetings and also utilizing emotional intelligence, when addressing concerns of other team members.
