It is amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn’t matter who gets the credit.
We’ve all heard the sayings:
- The whole is greater than the sum of its parts
- Two heads are better than one
- No man is an island
- All for one and one for all
What’s the real difference between working as part of a team and working solo?
Here are our top three reasons why working as a team can be more rewarding than working solo.
- Teamwork can make you more creative and help you grow.
In a team where teammates support each other, the enthusiasm to collaborate and learn can mean taking more risks, ultimately resulting in greater rewards and a better final outcome. The skills and experiences learned through positive team interaction in the non-competitive Grasshopper Soccer environment provide a huge confidence boost to those kids who may be a little insecure.
- Teamwork means you don’t need to be master of everything and it ensures you don’t get stuck in a rut.
When all pistons are firing, teams are open to the input of all members and allow individuals to play to their strengths, build on their talents, and encourage each other. You can see the pride on our Grasshopper Soccer kid’s faces when their team works together to score a goal.
- Teamwork promotes ownership.
Working as part of a team to overcome obstacles and deliver a well-structured and successful game is not only fulfilling, but it allows children to feel like they’re helping the group achieve its goals. There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of sharing the feeling of a job well done with a team that believes their contributions are recognized and valued.
Grasshopper Soccer provides the perfect structure and environment for teams to grow and flourish. We are committed to providing a happy and secure learning environment and we are continually impressed as we witness the growth and development of our Grasshopper Soccer players.
