  • It’s a culture of free and equal participation in the decision making processes.

However, when it comes to non-profit organizations, how do they achieve team work?

Organizations are much more likely to perform well when their people work effectively as a team.  Therefore, it is important to bring a healthy and understanding environment to the organization by assessing staff and volunteers’ strengths/weakness, skills, capabilities, comfort level, and assign them with the most appropriate work.  Working together as a team, applying individual perspectives, experiences, and skills creates synergy.
