Build Your Teamwork Skills

What is teamwork?

Employers want to hire people who work well in teams because they need everyone supporting each other on a project for a business goal to succeed. From volunteering to being the one who plans office birthday parties, there are lots of ways to demonstrate your good teamwork skills.

Takeaway tips

  • In team meetings take everyone’s ideas on board, not just your own good idea. Teamwork means listening to others, encouraging them, and being flexible.
  • Go the extra mile if it helps your team perform and feel better. For example, maybe you’ll stay a little later to create a client report in time, or bring in snacks for the office when spirits need lifting.
  • Support others who need help, and be willing to take instruction from line managers and team leaders. A good team depends on everyone working well together.
