"There is no 'I' in Teamwork"
 
Teamwork is an important buzzword in schools, universities and at offices today. We are slowly moving away from individual projects to team-based projects in an attempt to boost growth and innovation.
 
An individual has his set of strengths and weaknesses, but when a group of individuals come together, they are able to eliminate their weaknesses and enhance their strengths. This is the power of teamwork. 
 
By combining the strengths of team members, new heights of success can be reached. When people work together, they don’t think about their individual gains; they think about the welfare of the group. 
 
Teamwork is a fusion of three elements – collaboration, compromise and cooperation. When a group of individuals work together, there is bound to be friction because of differing viewpoints.
 
 However, people come to a compromise to prevent the downfall of a group. In team-based sports such as football, hockey and cricket, we witness team members leaving their differences behind and working towards a common goal – to defeat the opponents. 
 
We don’t see competition between the members of the same team because there is no ‘I’ in teamwork. It is true that no one can break a bundle of sticks but one can break single sticks if they are no longer part of a bundle. Similarly, it will be difficult to defeat a team because ‘unity is strength’. 
 
It is true that “united we stand, divided we fall”. So, it is only when individuals leave their differences behind and work towards a common goal can they achieve success. In a war, we notice the same phenomenon.
 
Soldiers do not think of their glory and fame when fighting for their country. They put the nation before self. In history books and in reality, we have always seen the victory of teams and the downfall of individuals. This is the beauty of teamwork.
