Team Synergy

The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

Understanding Team Synergy

Your office is your playground and you set the rules by which everyone plays. When things get chaotic and team members act of their own accord is when they don’t know the rules by which to play. You can still empower your staff to have a voice and develop ownership with their position while providing them the foundation and structure from which to do it. Let your team develop. Yes, it is important that you maintain the team’s cohesiveness and sense of purpose and keep them on track to complete their goals, but you should not do the work for them and you should not micromanage. Both policies stifle growth and prevent the team from finding its own best path to success. If that means letting a little bit of fun distract from work for a few extra minutes, so be it.

Developing Your Team

A leader who engages in team development focuses on enhancing a team’s spirit and purpose during its entire life cycle from formation to disbanding. While team development touches on both team building and performance management, it differs from both. Team building focuses on the interpersonal relationships; and performance management comes into play after the team is up and running and focuses on fulfilling corporate strategies and meeting metrics. From a leadership perspective, team development is greatly influenced by choice of team members, communication, the way you and your team handle conflict, and training, mentoring and appreciation. Team development relies on how well we incorporate each of these factors into our business.
