Relationship building is critical to working on any team. Everyone brings something special to a team that has the potential to create efficiencies for tasks that impact the end result. Understanding each other's roles and responsibilities provide you with insight on how to make better decisions and leverage each other's strengths to accomplish a goal together. As you begin to bond and form relationships, you may experience stages in the development of your team. These stages were coined first by psychologist Bruce Tuckman and are referred to as "Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing", and are typically experiences that occur when a new team comes together. I hope this helps to answer your question and encourages you to want to learn more about how effective teams come together.
