Ganking

Try to run and flash in from behind so that you can Headbutt the enemy towards your teammate. The uses of Pulverize is necessary sometimes to position yourself properly. This is pretty straightforward and you should have no problem ganking after a little bit of practice.

Team Work

The most important thing about teamwork with alistar is learning not to be greedy. If you are greedy your going to get mad and the enemy will end up killing you and your teammates.

To avoid this make sure you spam your pulverize as much as possible to keep the enemy at bay. A greedy alistar will save his headbutt and pulverize tell the end hoping to ks. Not remembering that they are a tanky AP champ. Make sure you remember your goal.To make your team powerful while picking up the slack.
