From the Paper:

"Individuals join groups for a number of reasons. Being a member of a group provides a sense of security. Individuals feel stronger, more powerful and resistant to threats when they are a part of a group. Individuals also join groups in order to accomplish goals. There are instances when it takes more than one person to perform a task and the pooling of ideas and opinions is required to achieve the goal at hand. A team is a small group of individuals who's members work actively together to achieve a common purpose and hold themselves mutually accountable for the outcome. Teams exist in all types of organizations and are becoming more and more common. The goal for managers now is to turn teams into high performance teams that are able to function well in any setting. Members of high-performance teams must have the ability to come to resolutions quickly and accomplish the tasks at hand. "
