Importance of Groups
Groups play a significant role in achieving a common objective. Groups enable people to work together to achieve a primer in teamwork by stipulating a common foundation for their formation, which enable them to identify the essential ingredient for their success (Mackenzie, Roger, Oliffe, Nurmi & Urquhart, 2017).
In this case, groups play a vital role as they contribute positively to the success of an organization effectiveness. An organization effectiveness can be enhanced when group members support each other and the common goal of the organization through sharing different skills . in addition, Social groups are important as they fulfill ones basic psychological needs creating a sense of belonging (Waling, &Fildes, 2017). Groups also creates a platform for friendship and also it a place where people can communicate, thus improving the quality of life. Examples of social groups are men’s shed, school, family and neighborhood, which were meant to improve and advice men on their overall health. However, with time this sheds have expanded to meet the needs of anyone regardless of their gender or age. The men’s sheds aim in improving the quality of life and also promoting social interactions.
In conclusion, A team consists of people who depend on each other to achieve a common goal. People in a team do not need to share the same skills. Most often than not it´s better if they do not so that every member of the group can benefit from the other members skills and expertise. Therefore, the major importance of groups is that, they support each other and the common goal by having different skills.
