The Oil and Gas Successful Team Player Workshop conducted by DCI has been effective in supporting Qatar Gas, Technip, Petronas employees to get more cooperation not only in their team but across departments. We do not always play to our strengths in a team, there times when the group we’re in just doesn’t gel? Either way, team-working is such a vital way of completing projects that it’s worth developing and refining the skills that will help you make a valuable contribution to whichever type of team you’re in.
Sports teams are perfect examples of how many players working together can achieve much more than one player who is acting alone. For example, you may not be the best goal scorer, but you’re great at moving the ball forward. You know that if you pass that ball to the person who CAN score, the team has a better chance of winning. Everyone on the team plays a different role, according to their strengths – and by helping and encouraging one another along the way, you can make some inspiring things happen.
Off the sports pitch and back in the workplace, we hear the term ‘good team player’ a lot. But what does this really mean in a business context? What do leaders want from their team members, and how can you make a more significant contribution to your team?
- Understanding why members of a team make or break its success.
