The Importance of Teamwork

Whether in the workplace or on the football field, or even amongst members of a community, effective teamwork can produce incredible results. However, working successfully as a team is not as easy as it may seem. Effective teamwork certainly does not just happen automatically; it takes a great deal of hard work and compromise. There are a number of factors that must be in place to cohere together as a team and work seamlessly.

• Good leadership: Effective leadership is one of the most important components of good teamwork. The team’s leader should possess the skills to create and maintain a positive working environment and motivate and inspire the team members to take a positive approach to work and be highly committed. An effective team leader will promote a high level of morale and make them feel supported and valued.
• Clear communication: Communication is a vital factor of all interpersonal interaction and especially that of a team. Team members must be able to articulate their feelings, express plans and goals, share ideas and see each other’s viewpoints.
• Establishing roles: It is absolutely necessary for team members to understand what their role on the team is, what he/she is responsible for. The team leader can enable this by defining the purpose in a clear-cut manner in the beginning of the formation of the team.
• Conflict Resolution: Conflicts will arise no matter how well a team functions together. The best way to counter conflict is to have structured methods of conflict resolution. Team members should be able to voice their concerns without fear of offending others. Instead of avoiding conflict issues, a hands-on approach that resolves them quickly is much better. It is often advised that the team leader sit with the conflicting parties and help work out their differences without taking sides and trying to remain objective if possible.
• Set a good example: The team leader must set a good example for good teamwork to come about. In order to keep team members positive and committed and motivated, the team leader herself/himself needs to exhibit these qualities. The team looks to the leader for support and guidance so any negativity on the leader’s part can be disastrous.

Regardless of what type of sales you are in, you may one day be asked to be part of a team sales effort, and knowing how to effectively work on and with a team is going to be crucial to your success and that of your team.

Hyden Wave Rock – The Pre-Historic Surf

Hyden Wave Rock – The Pre-Historic Surf


Wave Rock is part of the northern face of Hyden Rock and this amazing nature sculpture is located at Perth, Australia. The shape of the wave is formed by gradual erosion of the softer rock beneath the upper edge, over many centuries. Wave Rock has cultural significance to Aborigines. More than 140,000 tourists visit wave rock every year.

There are actually several examples of such waves in the Hyden area. The colors of the Wave are caused by the rain washing chemical deposits down the face, forming vertical stripes of grey reds and yellows. It is also worth seeing the Rock at different times of the day, as the changing sunlight alters its colors and appearance. Following are magnificent nature photos of Hyden Wave Rock at Australia.
