Teams reach their highest performance level whenever each individual, as a part of them, learns how to develop and specialize in a certain field, providing to his or her team the means to further collective improvement.

True teamwork is defined by common goals, work methods and a shared vision. Furthermore, the mutual support makes the goals more attainable overall.

Whenever a working group has as goal to become a real team, difficulties are to be expected. Going from working individually to working together, as a team, requires great skills of leadership as well as determination and patience from every single member of the team.

The moment the members of a team have reached a certain level of communication and agreement related to the team's general goals, it becomes easier to make the transition from the individual work to the collective one. 

Teamwork is perceived as being extremely efficient in our everyday working structure, as it develops social skills in addition to enabling a faster achievement of goals.
