Team dynamics

Being Part of a Team

Most international volunteers travel and work as part of a team. Your team may be as small as two or as large as 20. But in every case, working well together can be the most important ingredient in your success.

Building and maintaining a strong and cohesive team is not solely the responsibility of the team leader. It requires every member's input and commitment. Medical Teams International believes that by engaging volunteers, we are able to multiply the resources God gives us and do far more than we could on our own. To make this happen, each volunteer contributes their individual experiences and skills into building a successful team.

 This section of Module II will help you prepare to work well on your team.
