Am I a team player? Yes, I think I am. I think the difference in a group and a team is a team is made of individuals within already within an organization with specific goals and specific roles for those on the team. These members usually follow orders set by their leader. A group I think is a group or an assembly of people with the same interest at the same place. There may not be a leader of the group if there's no project going on. My experience as a team member has been tiresome. We all work together to reach our goal but the work is so intense not just for me but for the whole team. The positive thing about that is we all do our fair share. No, I was not the team leader. I believe groups and teams are important to organizations because more can be accomplished by working together than individually.
