Is it more important to be able to work with a group of people on a team or to work independently? Use reasons and specific examples to support your answer.

I opine, one must be able to work with the group with a good team spirit. Working in isolation is not good.

A person who works in isolation becomes introvert and would not develop or learn new ways and means of working. A person of this type cannot work in a large corporation employing many thousand employees.

Teamwork is the concept of people working together cooperatively, as in a sports team.
Projects require that people work together, so teamwork has become an important concept everywhere. Effective teams are an intermediary goal towards getting good, sustainable results. The essentials of team work are: –

• Listen to other people’s ideas. When people are allowed to freely express their ideas, these initial ideas will produce other ideas.
• Ask questions, interact, and discuss the objectives of the team.
• Treat others with respect and to support their ideas.
• Help one’s coworkers, which is the general theme of teamwork.
• Share with the team to create an environment of teamwork
• All members of the team are encouraged to participate in the team.
• For a team to work effectively it is essential team members acquire communication skills and use effective communication channels between one another e.g. using email, verbal communication, group meetings and so on. This will enable team members or the group to work together and achieve the team’s purpose and common goals.

In conclusion team workers are good listeners and diplomats, talented at smoothing over conflicts and helping parties understand each other without becoming confrontational and they are most successful in the present era. Hence it is most important to be able to work in a group instead of working independently in isolation.
