The Power of Using Teamwork In Your Business

The Power of Teamwork

The Power of Teamwork

Teamwork is about partnership!  It is a partnership that allows you to reach your goals faster. Having the power of a team allows you to leverage the abilities of others to work toward common goals. The different perspectives of many people working in collaboration with each other can lead to extraordinary success. 

The Power of Teamwork in Business

History is full of evidence demonstrating the power of teamwork.  Let me make my case.  For example, there is Thomas Edison and his team of scientists and innovators working together at Menlo Park. They created the electric light bulb, movie picture camera, sound recording and many other inventions. These inventions have given us the comforts of the modern world. Thomas Edison’s name is on more than 1000 patents. However, it was his ability to leverage the abilities of a team that allowed him to create the modern research laboratory.  

Next, let’s look at Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak working together to create Apple computers.  Then there is Bill Gates and Paul Allen at Microsoft.  These giants of industry started with a dream and used the power of teamwork to make their dreams a reality.

These are but a few examples of the power of teamwork in business!

 Are You Using the Power of Teamwork in Your Business?

As you begin or grow your business, you want to move quickly past the “solopreneur” stage.  History has taught us that nothing of significance is achieved alone. You must bring in other people to help you achieve anything of significance. You must have a business dream team!  Once you begin to add people to your team, you will need a project manager.  A project manager will know how everything fits.  At first you will be the project manager, but eventually you will need someone else to run the operations.  The project manager allows you to work on your business rather than in your business. The project manager is like the conductor in a symphony or the director of the play.  She coordinates everyone else’s work.  She makes sure that everything runs smoothly and your business is a well-run machine.  The project manager is at the center of your business dream team.  

If you are interested in learning more about building a great team I highly recommend that you read “The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork: Embrace Them and Empower Your Team, by John Maxwell.  You can also download a pdf training package that we have created: “The Ultimate Guide to Building Your Business Dream Team.” This training will put you on the fast track to success.


If you do not have a business dream team, you should!  Nothing of significance is ever achieved alone.  History is replete with evidence of the success achieved with business dream teams.
