  • Introduction

    Working with a group of people is different from working in a team.  Working in a team means that everyone is working to the same goal and, if that goal is not met, can suffer the same consequences - whether positive or negative.  To make a team work there needs to be several different component roles.  Often these roles are provided by different people but sometimes one person may fulfil more than one role.


    Definition of a team: the combined action of a group, especially when effective and efficient.


    Phil Jackson“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
    Phil Jackson
