Teamwork in Sports

"The strength of the team is every member … the strength of each member is the team!" (Phil Jackson, Coach, Chicago Bulls)

For a sports team you need talented athletes who work together to achieve a common goal. Each member and team has a whole set of four features in order to be successful. These can be described by:

T – Trust

E – Enthusiasm

The ambition

M – Motivation

Trust allows team members to depend on each other and good teamwork is based on trust. In the team's sport, the players depend on each other. When trust is lacking, members play individually, weakening the entire team unity. Trust builds up when team members get to know each other, their skills and commitment. It enhances how the team works in practice, and team development will almost instinctively feel each other. In an efficient sports team you have to be trusted among your teammates, trust between coaches and players, and individual athletes need to trust themselves and in their own abilities. If an athlete does not trust himself or herself, he often fears fear.

Enthusiasm is the glue that keeps the team together. Most people are involved in the fun of entertainment and pleasure in the sport. If the game is entertaining, you will be enthusiastic about training and playing. The entire sports team should share the enthusiasm that they wanted as a team member. Every team member must be proud of the team as it creates social cohesion.

Ambition gives the team direction. Individual team members and the team as a whole must be ambitious enough to achieve the goal of ethical victory. If a team joins a common goal or ambition, cohesion is a good thing.

Every member needs to know the team's goals and ambitions and is committed to commit. Individuals need an ambition to participate in the training and focus on developing their skills for the benefit of both themselves and the team. Most players aim to be recognized as prominent players. In order to be recognized they have to play well in a row of games. The overall goal of each player is determined by the team's performance so that each player's goal is the goal of the team.

Motivation motivates the team. Each player needs a good motivation to be able to fulfill their potential. Motivation is a challenge that a player feels will be able to achieve. Teams are also questioned when they think they can defeat the match. Even the underlying dog can occasionally overcome the overwhelming pet. In fact, your pet is underperforming because players are "moving" without motivation, while underdog is a challenge and a motivation. When team members believe that the team can overcome obstacles to reach the goal, we can say that the team has a good group effect.
