Teamwork: A Crucial Element of Success

Teamwork: A Crucial Element of Success

Claudia Camacho
Administrative and Finance Director

People coming together, organizing, and cooperating comes from the need to complement each other to achieve a common goal that would not be possible if done individually. When working together certain processes are improved and streamlined, allowing companies and institutions to accomplish goals and daily tasks.

In a team, the aptitudes of each member come together, boosting efforts, reducing time spent on tasks, and increasing the effectiveness of the results.

A group of people become a team when they achieve cohesion. To do this, they must create bonds, establish rules on how everyone should behave (the role of the leader is key here), promote good communication, and work towards the same goals.

Cohesion in a team comes from respect, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging. The more cohesion in the team, the more productive everyone will be and the better results everyone will deliver.

At Eton, we promote the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and experiences. This allows us to enhance processes and learning and teaching methods, since we consider different perspectives when planning activities and making decisions.

Additionally, we foster creativity and innovation when everyone is asked to contribute their ideas. Likewise, we strengthen the social and emotional skills of students as they learn to listen to, respect, and value the opinions of others.
