Cooperation by Collette Butler

What would happen if people never co-operated? Why do you think it is important to co-operate?

What would happen if people never co-operated? If people never co-operated life would be more complicated than it is now. There would be no source of order, direction, guidelines, or boundaries. Cooperation is the one of the most important character traits we as a people and BEST Fellows should possess. Cooperation is simply complying with the group and thinking as one. It is perfectly fine to agree to disagree as long as there is common ground found. No one person has a solution to every problem; therefore, we should surround ourselves with an equal balance of stronger and weaker individuals who complete the team. The balance itself permits brain power as well as critical thinking to find a well thought out solution to the problem or situation at hand.

It is important to co-operate because cooperation makes a process move smoothly. One may not have all the answers all the time, but two heads is better than one. The more brain power we have the better the outcome or the results would be to a problem or task. There will never full participation or cooperation with every individual in the world, but this is the time to start with yourself. Also, it is important to co-operate because there is no leader of a team who hasn’t been a follower and that hasn’t been at the back of the line working his/her way up to that executive or president seat. Be all you can be and co-operate because there will be times where outside help and working as a team will get the job done faster than being alone and thinking as multiple people when there is only one.
