A pattern of team work

One of the challenges of the new millenium will lie in the power that organizations may have to consolidate genuine working teams. New scenarios, strongly inclined towards change, require a high level of training and the development of capacities to contribute to professionalization and to the building up of team work.
The possibility of counting on competent working teams will add a further value and will become an essential tool to facilitate communication processes, meeting objectives and identifying internal policies of each organization. Even if reaching these conclusions may seem obvious and simple, to shape up a genuine team is, in practice, a difficult task.
Group dynamics brings along a multidisciplinary approach, and it is important to leave behind the idea of businesses to visualize important aspects that will favour our idea of team work.
Sports, as a discipline, are an excellent example to outline the difference between a working team and a team work. Football is the sport that attracts the highest number of fans and that generates the most intense level of passion.
What special attribute should a company have to make others see all its members interact passionately?
At present, where improvements are ongoing, and changes are the only element that remains constant, the option would be to propose a recipe for team building. This proposal tends to analyse team working from an open and flexible point of view, to build up a true interaction with the team, valuing its advantages, and considering it as an integrated means to achieve a goal.
A team is built up from the need to achieve a goal or an objective, within a certain period of time, where members should develop their competences in the best possible way, but also contributing with their colleagues in order to attain each and every team objective. We work in a team only when we are focused on action.
A football player trains daily in order to achieve the best possible performance, but on the field he needs to be complemented by his peers so that the result of his teamĀ“s performance has a favourable result.
Professional players get day after day a physical and tactical training and, in addition, they concentrate together to attain their best condition when they face their opponent. Each team then gets out to the field to win with a clear strategy, the main objective being to hold the ball as long as possible, to surprise the opponent and to define the game, no sooner, no later, just at the right time.
