As the saying goes – Teamwork makes the dream work. Or does it? Teamwork can be an excellent tool to boost your progress and collaboration but it can also go terribly wrong.
So, let’s take a break and look at some of the funniest teamwork memes. After all, we are all going through the same thing.
Being a team player is hard work
Ever felt like someone is only pretending to pull their weight? This is one of the clearest depictions of such feeling – looking like you are doing the work, but actually hurting the team.
Every workplace team
We all know at least one team that operates this way. If you are part of such a team, at least switch up the roles so everybody gets to slack off.
The one superstar
Most teams have that one superstar who holds up the entire effort. Value them, learn from them and become them to support others.
The one that does nothing
Alternatively, most of us had that one team member who besides their best efforts contributed nothing. Help them learn and make each member an integral part of your success.
The one who trusts you can do it better
Sometimes it is truly better to let others do it, but when you end up doing nothing all the time it just seems wrong. Try and pull your weight instead of coasting as this teamwork meme suggests.
The manager that does not trust their team
Even the best teamwork will suffer if the manager thinks they can do everything better. Trust your colleagues and let them excel in their own way.
Lead by example
Promote teamwork by showing up and doing the work yourself. Lead by example and get the best from your team.
Be a team player
Make teamwork easier by being a team player. We have all been there wanting to point fingers, but proposing solutions is much more valuable to solve the problems.
Create a place you want to come back to
Your office does not need to look like an amusement park, but put some effort into making the space feel welcoming. It is much more fun to come in when you have a nice office.
A company that preaches teamwork and not benefits
Even with the best teamwork, there won’t be good results if the team does not feel respected. Make sure to value your employees, give them time off, and reward their achievements to not become a teamwork meme like this.
Give a helping hand to those that struggle
Yes, that new employee might have embellished their resume, but haven’t we all at some point? Give them a helping hand and foster teamwork to build great relationships.
When teamwork works
Working with your friends is easy and usually turns in good results. Make friends with your team members and make teamwork fun again!
Supporting each other
Make teamwork easy by supporting and building each other up. You do not need to go overboard like this teamwork meme, but saying a good word never hurts.
Remember, even if you fail, you fail as a team. Do not single out people for their mistakes, but make collective decisions to improve in the future.
Lastly, thank your team members
Always thank your team members for a job well done. Giving praise where it is due boosts morale and inspires further growth.
