Working independently

Working independently is the ability to work self-sufficiently on assigned tasks. You might receive direction on projects from a supervisor or manager, but they can then trust you to accomplish tasks with little to no supervision. Working independently can involve a sense of responsibility and self-reliance as you work to finish projects and assignments.

Team Dynamics

Basic team dynamics include:

  • Open communication to avoid conflicts.

  • Effective coordination to avoid confusion and the overstepping of boundaries.

  • Efficient cooperation to perform the tasks in a timely manner and produce the required results, especially in the form of workload sharing.

  • High levels of interdependence to maintain high levels of trust, risk-taking, and performance.

All these teamwork conditions lead to the team turning in a finished product. A way to measure if the teamwork was effective, the organization must examine the quality of the output, the process, and the members' experience. Specifically, the teamwork can be deemed efficient if: the output met or exceeded the organization's standard; if the process the team chose to take helped them reach their goals; and if the members are reporting high levels of satisfaction with the team members as well as the processes which the team followed.
