A strong team of people who work well together can only be beneficial to a business. When staff are in sync and communicate effectively there are so many benefits. Promoting teamwork is the only way to create a happy and productive workplace.

Team members are willing to share their thoughts and ideas. They listen effectively, support and trust one another. They deal with difficulties openly, honestly and constructively. Each individual’s strengths and weaknesses are pooled and put to use by the team. Team members work together to generate ideas and solutions. The whole team should trust and feel supported by their leader.

To inspire your team to work together and celebrate collaboration, I’ve gathered some of my favorite quotes on the power of teamwork.

1. ‘’Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people.’’ — Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple INC.

2. ‘’Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.’’ — Henry Ford, founder of The Ford Motor Company

3. ‘’Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.’’ — Michael Jordan, retired professional basketball player

8. ‘’Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.’’ — Vince Lombardi, football coach

9. ‘’The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.’’ — Babe Ruth, baseball player

10. ‘’I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.’’ — Mia Hamm, soccer player
