Teamwork is when a group works together to reach a goal or finish a task in the best and most efficient way possible.
Teamwork is a unifying element that brings people together and motivates them to rely on one another to complete tasks.
Teamwork promotes growth by allowing the group to successfully overcome obstacles that would have prevented an individual from succeeding. Without cooperation, none of this would be possible.
