The Science Behind Success Is Teamwork

The Science Behind Success Is Teamwork

Vartika Kashyap 11/12/2019 6

Teamwork might seem like an indistinct or vague concept to many, but there is no doubt that there are real benefits for companies and individuals when they all get along. Over the past year, you’ve probably noticed that I have been talking a lot more about the importance of teamwork and collaboration.

The thing is, in our team, we have individuals with unique gifts, talents, and skills—we bring every individual to the table and encourage them to contribute their gifts, talents, and skills for a common purpose. By doing so, we (not I) give ProofHub a real competitive advantage.

And that’s just for starters. Plenty of recent studies show that teams who have strong connections ignite a strong passion that helps them deliver winning results. Now, in my attempt to illustrate the secret of success, I bring forth all the unexpected ways teamwork can make you smarter, more creative, and more successful.

Use ProofHub for better collaboration and teamwork. Sign up and get started!

1. “The most innovative ideas happen at the intersection—the place where ideas from different industries and cultures collide.” The Medici Effect

Lone geniuses are a big myth. Great ideas are more likely to come into the picture when different personalities and mentality comes into the picture. That’s what makes teamwork worth it. 

2. “When people play off each other’s skills and knowledge, they can create solutions that are practical and useful.” - Murphy

In a team, you have a pool of different skills and strengths. When brought together in the smartest way possible, success and growth are guaranteed. And that’s another advantage that makes teamwork so important. 

3. “Working in a team you’ll discover you could be a better listener. That’s a skill you can grow in...” - McDaniel

When you’re in a team, clear and constant communication is a must. That’s the only way a team can survive and succeed without suffering any conflicts. Now, the advantage that teamwork brings here is that it gives every individual enough room to grow as an individual and as a team player. 

4. “True success and breakthrough innovation involve discomfort… This is where the difference of experience, opinion, and perspective comes in. Diversity is a well-documented pathway to unlocking new opportunities, overcoming new challenges, and gaining new insights.” - Johansson

The difference in experience, opinion, and perspective is an everyday scenario when you’re working as a part of a team. And it represents an amazing opportunity to unlock innovation.
