  9. What is a team? Group Discussion

  10. A team is more than just a group of individuals who work together. A team is a small number of individuals with complementary skills committed to a common purpose, common performance goals and an approach for which they hold themselves collectively accountable. (2007)

  11. A team is a group of individuals who work together to produce products or deliver services for which they are mutually accountable. Team members share goals and are mutually held accountable for meeting them, they are interdependent in their accomplishment, and they affect the results through their interactions with one another. Because the team is held collectively accountable, the work of integrating with one another is included in the responsibilities of each member. (Mohrman and Cohen, 1995)

  12. Leadership in the new millennium has comprehensively come of age. Where once leaders were aloof decision-makers, today they are dedicated collaborators whose role is to give power to theirTEAM rather than wield power to their own ends.

  20. In health care terms, what difference does EFFECTIVE TEAM WORKING really make?

  21. Borrill & West (2002) found that individuals who worked in well functioning teams had lower levels of stress and better mental health. Their research demonstrated a significant relationship between the percentage of staff working in teams and patient mortality. Where more people work in teams, the death rate among patients is significantly lower. There is much to be gained by enhancing team functioning and effectiveness!
