The role we play in the team – 5-minute talk to strengthen teamwork.
The role we play in the team
At work, each individual plays two roles: their job role and their role in the team. The former refers to the actual execution of the work, while the latter pertains to our individual way of contributing to the team. Unlike technical abilities, the team role takes into account personal qualities, values, and behaviors. It is about how people contribute not just as workers, but as individuals. The key is for people to learn to identify whether they play a positive role or a detrimental one in the team.
