What is the meaning and importance of teamwork?

We, SSSi Online Tutoring Services, visit NGOs every month in the form of CSR activity to spread the importance of education. Our main focus is to help the youth of India secure a good education, which will help them to grow. We connected with an NGO named "SETU". They have a few schools under them. In April, we visited one of their schools, "SETU School", to teach students the "Meaning and Importance of Team Work". Our team was excited to visit the school as the school was giving friendly vibes. We were welcomed wholeheartedly into their space. Then, we felicitated the principal of SETU School, Ms. Manisha Pandey, with a beautiful bouquet.

We introduced ourselves to all the little ones and the teachers there; then, we had a small interactive session. They were shy at first, but who doesn't feel shy, right? We made them comfortable by cracking a few jokes, and they laughed hard. We saw that the school's teachers were so happy seeing their kids laughing they started clicking pictures. It was a lovely thing to see. We could feel heart fill joy they have among them. We later proceeded to teach the students about the meaning of teamwork by playing a few games. We played Kho Kho and Antakshari, and as they were so comfortable with us, they wanted to show their talent by singing beautiful songs, so they did. It was indeed very eye pleasing! We later asked the students about the meaning of teamwork, and to our utter surprise, they answered by themselves. We were really impressed that the games were enough to make them understand what "Team Work" means.

The members, teachers as well as parents were clicking our pictures and were happy with our visit there. They took our number and asked about the benefits of online tuition; we provided them with all the information and bid them goodbyes. As they and the kids asked us to revisit them, we hope we can.

What were we discussing there?

Our team researched the "Team Work" concept before visiting the school. We need to work on ourselves before teaching others anything. We prepared a PPT for the kids. We discussed it after the fun games we played with them. We must say, the kids were super active after they were comfortable with us completely. Let's give you a sneak-peak on what to discuss-

Teamwork is essential, but how much?

In today's world, you will hardly reach anywhere in your life when single-handedly. You will find difficulties if you don't learn how to work as a team. The importance of teamwork cannot be stressed enough. In the present world, we know that in our jobs, we have to work as a team to reach our goals. Students should build up a habit of working as a team for the better of themselves in the future. The students in the school were listening to us very actively. We explained to them that teamwork can help them finish any work more easily, creatively, and faster. Teamwork will help them perform well in their college as well as in jobs.

Additionally, we explained to them the five main reasons for the importance of teamwork:

  • Teamwork leads to learning We all know that people have different talents, skills, and capacities. When a pack of people works together, they can learn new things from each other. This process can be very learning and productive for each team member. If the team faces any issue, the members will develop new ideas to solve the issue. Everyone can use their skills and try to reach the ultimate goal.
  • Teamwork can help to get feedback and different perspectives Teamwork helps individuals put their diverse perspectives on a plate to solve problems, which helps the team find solutions more effectively and efficiently. When a team works well, each member of that team is valued. When a member comes up with new ideas and gets feedback from the other team members, they tend to be more open about their ideas. Also, if the team members encourage each other, each member will confidently share their opinions and thoughts without the fear of being judged.
  • Teamwork cultivates communication and strong work relationship A strong work relationship doesn't mean you will have to have a solid friendship with the team members. Instead, a great working relationship automatically flows from a great mindset where you work with full collaboration, positivity, respect, and active listening. Moreover, it is essential to note that excellent team communication can lead to mutual trust and understanding. When you and your team work on the same goals, you tend to have more common desires, which can help you communicate more and more.
  • Teamwork brings an expanded sense of accomplishment When a team solves or wins something, the enjoyment and the feeling of accomplishment expand more related to individual accomplishment. The hard work of each member pays off. Each team member will feel great after contributing so much to the team's growth.
  • Teamwork can improve efficiency and productivity When an individual works alone on a project, it gets very time-consuming. In comparison, a team full of passionate members can finish a project in much lesser time. This happens because the team members divide the work and set some efficient rules to follow while working.

Summing up

We ended the beautiful sessions by giving some tokens of love, which included snacks and juice. SETU Foundation is doing a great job educating youths and children. Like us, they also want to build a better future for them. We have seen in the student's eyes that they have passion and the fire in them to do something good. When asked what they wanted to become when they grew up, the responses that came to them us very loud and clear. Many wanted to become a teacher and distribute knowledge. Some wanted to become a doctor and save lives; others wanted to become police. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit there. They also taught us to enjoy every moment is life. The students didn't want us to return, but we had to. Hoping to revisit them!
