Most of us have been part of a team. Your family acts as a team, dividing the labor and working out relationships. In school, sooner or later you’re bound to end up on a group project. You might play sports, participate in the band, sing in a choir, cheer on a pep squad, or serve on a student committee. You know how teams work . . . and how they don’t. Most corporations and businesses believe in the effectiveness of workplace teams. Millions of dollars are spent each year training employees to work together and get along. Why? Because teams work. They produce greater profits and more satisfied employees.
