International Entrepreneur expert Wesley Msungeni has said effective teamwork is an important aspect of any organisation’s success.
Msungeni said this on Saturday during a leadership training that was organized by Center for Women and Girls Empowerment (CEWOGE) in Blantyre.
He said some organizations have fallen because people do not want to work as a team and learn from one another.”We all need the help of colleagues and associates who pool their talents and creativity, their energy, motivation, and support into work teams to achieve a common goal,”-said Msungeni who also works for Tobacco Control Commission (TCC).
Msungeni further said the most important building block to develop an effective team is communication.He said it is imperative to develop the necessary skills to communicate effectively with each other.
On self leadership Msungeni advised the participants to start leading themselves in order to become good leaders.
He also urged organisations to set specific and quantifiable goals in order to be more successful.”Teams work when there is a shared common goal. If you have a goal the next that you have is a plan and after making the plan you have to act in order to achieve your goal,” he said
