Individual Work or Teamwork?



Individual Work or Teamwork?
In order to effectively accomplish a particular goal at a place of work or anywhere else, it
is important to work together as a team. Working as a group helps in completing tasks faster, by
helping each other with ideas whenever they need it, as well as offering physical assistance.
Teamwork also brings unity at the workplace, which in turns leads to improvement in the
performance of the organization. On the contrary, individual work at a workplace is slower
because every worker has to perform tasks without help, and sometimes tasks could be hard and
in bulk. In addition, individual work also leads to competition, and this undermines the
performance of the organization. However, as much as teamwork is beneficial not only to the
organization but also to the individual workers, sometimes it is better to work alone than in a
group. This is because some members or leaders of groups cause more trouble than progress,
affecting the rest of the members. Personally, I prefer to work individually as a result of bad
team experience in which the team organizer lacked leadership skills that led the group to failure.
If I was in charge of the team, I would have used the following concepts to improve
