The ability to work as a team member is a very common requirement of most jobs in business and industry today. The reason for its importance is similar as well: you don’t work in a vacuum; most career positions today are complex enough that input from coworkers, supervisors, even clients is needed to move a project from the planning stages to completion.
Remember that most companies are in business to make a profit. Contention, confusion, and even “loner” behavior can negatively impact any project: delay schedules, produce stale solutions, and increase costs. On the other hand, good teamwork skills can do just the opposite: move projects along faster, create innovative solutions, and increase profits!
