I am writing from Boat Quay at the dragon boat Singapore River Regatta, where many teams come together to battle it out to row to the finishing line. So being among all these striving teams inspired me to write about teamwork. So many things in life we are surrounded by also reflect onto our working life.
We all know already that teamwork is the key to success in most areas of our daily lives and business life. Only through teamwork can we combine different points of view to identify, create opportunities, overcome difficult obstacles and achieve challenging objectives.
We do need to keep in mind that teamwork can be a challenging if groups do not work in harmony. It requires that people within the team manage their egos, develop humility, communicate effectively, resolve conflicts and, above all, commit to one another towards a common goal.
Being part of a team increases and develops performance, a culture within the group promotes hard work, excellence, learning, continuing improvements and to strive towards achieving extraordinary results.
Today watching all the teams battle it out shows that teamwork and working together is related to no matter if you play a sport, network, or even coming together as a family, working as a team will always result in learning and discovering more about ourselves and others.
The major thing I have noticed among BWN members is a great culture where many ladies are working together in collaboration, supporting and helping each other achieve their goals or solve problems they are struggling with.
So if you are not a member of BWN yet we have extended our basic membership package of $180 per year until the 28th November this will be the last time this price will be on offer TO JOIN TODAY our great network before you miss out.
Have a great day and look forward to seeing you at our last networking for 2016 on the 23rd November.
