The key to successful teamwork is trust and communication. Tasks and responsibilities need to be clearly defined. There needs to be open communication in order to tackle problems as soon as they arise. Moreover clear feedback among all team members is essential.

There are 3 things that constitute a successful teamwork

1) Relationship with the team members: Without a doubt having a good relationship with your teammates brings out the desire to work with them and enhances internal understanding

2) Trust: You need to place trust in your teammates that they are great at what they do and leave them in charge of what they are good at

3) Diversity of opinions: An acceptance of diversity of opinions within the team helps cover everything, enables a new perspective, and avoids leaving any potential blind spots unguarded

I think that communication is one of the most essential qualities that leads to successful teamwork. Having been in multiple teams, communicating with my team about what is to be done or them communicating with me about their capabilities or limitations has helped me strategize the next steps.

A team can only work successfully when all memebers fullfill a task and thus feel needed to contribute to the overall objective. To coordinate all of the different characters/roles and tasks in a team a good communication base in inevitable as well as transparency within the group.
