Teamwork is indispensable in times of globalisation and digitalisation. This can be seen not only in the use of digital media, where work often has to be done cooperatively. This development can also be seen in the restructuring of companies, which is related to leadership perspectives. In the past, companies were strongly hierarchical. Today, there are the buzzwords “agility”, “diversity” and “flat hierarchies”. Young companies in particular are departing from the conventional understanding of leadership and see the great opportunities of the time in the team. This is also logical, because four eyes see better than two. What happens when there are eight or ten eyes?
Team excellence is also to be understood as a catchword, namely as the description of excellent teamwork. Just because you suddenly form teams in a company does not mean that the work result will be excellent. There are good teams and there are bad teams. Bad teams are characterised by a lack of common linear direction. The members work against themselves as well as in directions where their results are lost. Therefore, efficient and effective teamwork is only possible when the team works together like an organism: everything is interrelated and at the same time the individual elements have their own functions, which in their wholeness in turn make the work result possible.
The decisive factor in teams is not so much the team itself, but the abilities and skills of the individual members. After all, there is no such thing as “the” team, but “only” a group of individuals. Therefore, it is important to challenge and promote individual abilities and skills. The basis for good teamwork is not only the selection of the right employees, but also the creation of a suitable working atmosphere. Openness, trust, motivation, technical know-how and, of course, professional competence characterise today’s teamwork.
