Hello WU Learner!
Have you ever been a one-person show before and realized that you can’t do everything all by yourself? As much as you try to learn and maneuver things around, sometimes it’s just not possible to do it ALL by yourself.
The importance of team building, in my opinion, is under rated; it is the difference from mediocre to good, good to great, and great to top of your industry, etc. What one can accomplish by one’s self, a team can accomplish so much more and in a shorter time frame.
Working with and building a team is highly beneficial and will most likely increase your business and brand’s growth, here are 5 reasons a team could help your growth and take your business to the next step:
Sometimes, it is best to stick to what we know best, which is why having a team is great, because everyone has their own specialty and is an expert in one department or another. This way, you’re tackling more things in less time, you’re getting more done quicker, etc.
It is also time and money consuming to learn how to do everything yourself, but why do everything yourself when you can build that with your team?
Giving people responsibility, especially making them feel they are a part of something bigger than themselves, will help grow your project, your business and your brand.*
When you work on everything yourself, which only divides up your focus on several different avenues, it becomes easier to miss a thing or two on the overall project or business. By having several different eyes and minds in the work environment, most often than not, someone is going to spot the oversight. This is great, because disasters get averted, business’ losses are prevented and growth is experienced.
3. Less Stress, More Productivity
Although at times it is stressful managing a team, on the upside of things, there is more productivity happening giving that the work is distributed. Hence, there’s less stress on one person doing all the work, running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Instead, when you’re less stressed and focused on your specialty, you’re more likely to be productive.
4. Better Environment
It is so much more fun working with a team, given it’s the right team and they are fun (obviously). A good solid team creates your work environment; working in a good/fun/happy environment actually increases the productivity of the work. It’s also mentally and emotionally healthy to work in a happy work place with people that bring out the best in each other. You don’t only build your team, your team builds you as well.
5. Next level
Teamwork, as opposed to solo work, has higher potential to take you to the next level. Think of it as your community, your clout, your connections and your network. The stronger your team, the better your future and your brand’s future will be.
Working with a team has all the right aspects to increase business growth and set you up for success. Choose your team carefully, as they are your future and you are theirs.
