A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO MAKE DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTIONS TOWARDS THE ACHIEVEMENT OF COMMON GOAL
The purpose of an organisation is to achieve overall effectiveness, not just the effective performance of individual groups. We must all strive to do well individually, yet always with a focus on the overall needs of the organisation.
Everybody, according to Tolstoy, wants to change humanity- but nobody wants to change himself or herself. We must find ways to compliment and support others, not blame one another for our difficulties
Anyone can dedicate himself or herself to long hours, hard work and individual effectiveness- and feel good about his or her contribution. The true issue, however is the extent to which we contribute to the goals and results of the organisation as a whole.
Management must recognise people’s tendency to identify with groups and the extent to which they quickly develop small group loyalties. One of the management’s key challenges, therefore , is to help broaden the scope of vision beyond the interest of the individual unit, department or division.
Opportunities to help one another , person to person, department to department, are all around us. They are amazingly easy to find out, if we keep watching for them and make a habit of asking people in other departments how they are doing- and how we can be of help.
Real teamwork can be so gratifying that it may be considered a reward enough. Nevertheless, the individual who habitually communicates, cooperates and collaborates with others will be recognised by his or her associates as an invaluable asset.
Knowledge of where the organisation is headed, what each individual’s general role is in the overall endeavour and what specific objectives particular groups are expected to to achieve is extremely important. For optimal success of the organisation, however, a spirit of teamwork is absolutely essential.
Military organisations successful in withstanding stress are truly corporative in that they require high levels of individual identification with institutional goals as the primary mechanism for compelling individual behaviour. It is this very sense of belonging, of sharing common values and of being unique that defines a truly cohesive military unit. It is these factors, which, in the end, motivate the individual soldier to stand and fight and to risk death in the service of his comrades.
