In any “company” teamwork is a fundamental value to achieve optimal work performance. In the business world, it is often said that a group is as strong as the weakest link in the chain, and that, to strengthen it, all members have to work in coordination and in the same direction. We tell you.
“Cooperation”, one plus one does not equal two
The term synergy is widely used to describe how an environment of “cooperation” between members of the same team helps them achieve success more quickly and easily. In an appropriate environment, where there is dialogue between members, they help each other by sharing their experiences and knowledge.
When that common knowledge is generalized, the “team” shows an environment in which some members help others, and this encourages everyone to adapt to changes and processes more quickly.
For example: members with more experience are able to show the way to the most inexperienced. Consequently, the latter are able to perform their work more efficiently, since they use the knowledge of the former to shorten their adaptation period.
Another example of “work team” that generates synergies occurs when its members can distribute the tasks according to their different areas of expertise. This reduces the time while minimizing errors. When these areas of expertise are multidisciplinary, these synergies multiply.
For this environment to take place, the “commitment” of the members is important, which must be open to work in harmony and in a choral way, understanding the benefit of all as their own.
As you can see, it is in the interest of every “company” to promote teamwork in their culture and reward values such as companionship to achieve success.
