From a very early stage in life people form coalitions to have enough resources in order to have a better chance of success.  When two or more people or groups work together towards the same result a coalition is created (Lewicki, 2020, p. 386).  When it comes to coalitions, there are multiple types of and reasons why a coalition may be formed.  The benefits of a coalition can be a variety of reasons from a common goal for a specific issue, groups of people who may not naturally interact working together, or to serve a common purpose not dictated by any mandated organization (Lewicki, 2020, p. 387).  Coalitions are needed in many circumstances for success.  Often individual, business, or establishment goals are extremely self-serving, but a coalition allows for groups that may not have worked together before to work towards the betterment of others.
