Working in a team makes it easier to achieve the goal that you and the others are trying to accomplish. It combines all the strengths that each member has and picks up the weakness that someone from your team might have. Working in a team also helps generate more ideas that are beneficial to achieving that goal. As you grow in a team/group as an individual, you are able to help your group/team to enhance their skills and teach them how to be in a group as well. Don’t forget that during the time that you are in a group, it is an opportunity to meet people and gain new friends! It is definitely a Win-Win situation for the group and yourself!
