TEAMWORK (PEOPLE 6) IS THE FIRST SPECIFIC ASPECTS OF LEADERSHIP. THE TEAMWORK COMPETENCE ELEMENT ENABLE THE INDIVIDUAL TO SELECT THE RIGHT TEAM MEMBERS, PROMOTE A TEAM ORIENTATION, AND EFFECTIVELY MANAGE A TEAM.

A multi-disciplinary team consisting of different people, different areas of expertise, and different characters, which has to cooperate. As well as the technical challenge, the chemistry in the team is a significant factor. Sometimes adults are just not able to work with each other. Teamwork is facilitating the team to work, and you start with this even before someone is allocated. It is one of your concerns that you select the right people for the team, and to let people cooperate with each other in a productive manner. Next to structuring, it is an important role too. In a department, people often work together for years with each other. That is not the case on a project/programme, where a good cooperation between everyone has to be created quickly. When you put a group of people together, you have not yet created a team. It is an intensive process to create a cooperating team out of a group of people. I am now going to make the parallel between a sports team and a project/programme team. The management expects from both of them a top performance. The sports team trains continuously and focuses on the teamwork of the sportsmen and/or sportswomen, so that they can win the upcoming match. They train more than they play. Something similar has to take place on a project/programme, only there we do not have (or take) the time for it. There, the training has to take place on-the-job. That is the teamwork that this competence element is about! You need to become, therefore, also partly a coach or trainer, one who encourages people to learn how to cooperate in this specific team. As well as the actual progress in the delivery of products and services, there is also the progress in the maturity of the team. Teams achieve more when the members cooperate than those where they are constantly in conflict with each other.
