It is important to learn how function in a team environment so that you will have teamwork skills when you enter the workforce
Working with a team exposes employees to the methods and work ethic of potentially more experienced employees
Employees will rely on one another and ask for help
Lack of Motivation
"can't-do" attitude and lose determination and belief in the team
If it becomes challenging frustration can cause loss of motivation
may result in confusion and lack of cohesion within the group--more than one person works on the same task, wasting time and possibly leading to disagreements.
While a strong leader can often be an asset to a team, somebody who considers his knowledge and skills superior to others can be just as hurtful
Can cause friction and frustration within the group--if others do not agree

ensure that the communication is regular and informative
hold members accountable
Consider your teammates as your equals, and value their opinions and needs as you would your own
