Lora · November 11, 2023

Volunteering with a literary association often involves working in teams to achieve common goals. In this module, we will explore some essential teamwork skills that volunteers need to develop.

Building a successful team:

A successful team comprises individuals who work collaboratively towards common goals. To build a successful team, volunteers should:

  • Establish clear roles and responsibilities
  • Set realistic goals and expectations
  • Encourage open communication
  • Establish ground rules for teamwork
  • Foster a positive and supportive team environment
  • Recognize and celebrate team achievements

Resolving conflicts:

Conflicts may arise when working in a team. To resolve conflicts effectively, volunteers should:

  • Acknowledge the conflict and establish its root cause
  • Listen actively to all parties involved
  • Remain respectful and avoid personal attacks
  • Propose solutions that are practical and mutually beneficial
  • Follow up to ensure that the solution is working

Working towards a common goal:

Volunteers must remember to work towards a common goal to achieve the objectives of the association. To work effectively towards a common goal, volunteers should:

  • Clearly define the mission and objectives of the literary association
  • Establish specific tasks and deadlines
  • Communicate regularly to ensure that everyone is on the same page
  • Encourage and support each other
  • Celebrate achievements and milestones

By developing teamwork skills, volunteers can work collaboratively towards achieving the goals of the literary association while also fostering positive relationships with their fellow volunteers.
