“In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”- Charles Darwin
The beauty of team building quotes is that they can come from anyone at anytime and can survive generations. Although some are more famous than others, they all can inspire a team to collaborate and work hard while paying tribute to many of the great thinkers before our time.
This week’s team building quote comes from one of the most famous scientists and influential figures in human history, Charles Darwin. He is most acknowledged for his contributions to evolutionary theory and the pattern of natural selection. He explains the “struggle for existence” and the connection of ancestors in his 1859 book, On the Origin of Species.
Darwin used fossils and the study of geology to inspire his scientific studies while also collaborating with other scientists of his time. His publication on natural selection was a joint publication with Alfed Russel Wallace, and many of his observations concerning natural science supported the work of Charles Lyell.
Team collaboration leads to success.
It is not only science where collaboration and teamwork are necessary in achieving a common goal. His theories can be applied to many aspects of life. Darwin’s study on how and why certain species survive can relate to survival and effectiveness of most entities and business models.
Darwin believed in survival of the fittest.
He knew that in order to succeed, he had to work with other scientists who were studying similar topics and improvise when it was necessary. This is also true in the workplace. Collaborative teams covering a range of different topics allows ideas to grow and business to prevail. Without communication and teamwork, there would not be consistency and thoroughness in business.
When was there a time at work where you think collaboration allowed your idea to survive?

One of the most crucial factors in the success of your business is how well your team works together. Corporate team building can be an effective and transformative strategy for helping business executives and their employees to feel more invested in their careers and each other.
How does the power of play influence success at work? Many people are working longer and harder, thinking that this will solve the problem of an ever-increasing workload. But they are still falling behind, becoming chronically overwhelmed, and burning out. Work is where we spend much of our time. That is why it is especially important for us to play during work. Without some recreation, our work suffers. Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work. It depends on upon the quality of your work. And the quality of your work is highly dependent on your well-being.
