Teamwork is the number one soft skill. It’s the least understood and least prioritized. It’s the number one place for productivity gains for any organization. Here’s research to prove this out.
A high-performing team of five employees wastes 200-275 hours per month on misunderstandings, miscommunication, poor teamwork, and unresolved conflicts.
That more than 2400+ hours per year.
That’s 50,000 hours for an organization of 100 or more people per year.
Those are conservative numbers based research studies and on my own research study of more than 1000 employees over the past three years in a variety of industries and geographies.
