Abstract

<p>In this study, I attempted to examine the functions of mutual helping in a team activity that take place on the members’ individual growth and team transformation as a whole in terms of merits and demerits. With regard to the benefits of mutual helping, as a driving force in promoting the development of teamwork, I argued the benefits of expanding the members’ horizons, sharing goals, and smooth communication coming into play. In addition, I shed light on the problems of team errors, pluralistic ignorance, and groupthink as adverse effects to be aware of. From the perspective of the theory of learning organization, I discuss possible effective strategies to overcome the pitfalls posed by these adverse effects such as promoting team learning, building psychological safety, and making a team function as a secure base.</p>
