“Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people.” Nicholas Sparks.

At a time when we have never been so busy and the team has recently expanded, this week we are talking teamwork and Kate gives us her thoughts on how important it is to the business and about our latest team workshop.

So first off…what is ‘teamwork’?

Definition of teamwork

The process of working collaboratively with a group of people in order to achieve a goal. Teamwork is often a crucial part of a business, as it is often necessary for colleagues to work well together, trying their best in any circumstance. Teamwork means that people will try to cooperate, using their individual skills and providing constructive feedback, despite any personal conflict between individuals.

What does teamwork mean to you?

“I wanted to create a working environment where designers work together to develop extraordinary designs. Our designs are distinctive, innovative and what our customers need as well as want. This is because the designers at Starbots don’t compete with each other they work together, talk to each other, share their knowledge and opinions which enhance our ideas and work.

I believe that teamwork is a crucial part of a business. It is important for every member of the team, designer or other, to communicate and always be in sync.

Although I know we are a proactive, strong, close, fun team of Starbots, we are still always looking to improve. We are a growing company and as every company grows it is important for everyone to grow together. I think that if we work well as a team we have a better offering to our customers.

I don’t take this for granted so this week I’ve arranged to do a workshop with Hazel Cooke. It’s titled Excelling at Customer Service and is based around teamwork and communication! It’s hard to put time aside to do things like this, we are always busy and there is always a deadline that we need to meet, but it makes such a difference to us to take part in activities that improve our way of working. I’m excited to see what comes out of it. As a team of creative people, we are of course very visual and a workshop often leads to a new Starbots infographic.”
