A colleague is someone you work with at your job. When you are a teacher, the other teachers are your colleagues. When you work as a cashier at 7-11, the guy at the deli counter is yourcolleague as well.Your colleagues are usually people at the same level or rank as you are. You would not usually consider your boss to be a colleague. This noun is from French collègue, from Latin collega "a person chosen along with another," from the prefix com- "with" plus legare "to appoint as a deputy."

Hope this helps:)

A colleague is one who is in the same league to which you belong.   We belong to our house containing family members.  The other members of family are colleagues at home.
At school we belong to a class or group of students. The other members of the class are our colleagues.

At a game, we play as a team.  The other members of the sports team are called colleagues.

We and colleagues have a common goal of making the team and the group function properly and/or win.  Often there is a competitive spirit to perform better than colleagues.  Team spirit and proper ethics must be present among colleagues.  However, often we see jealousy, power-play, favoritism and cheating to win in unethical manner.
