Teamwork and Synergy – The Heartbeat of a High-Performing Workplace


A high-performing workplace is based on collaboration and synergy. It is not enough to gather the right people. They must also be given the tools that allow them to lead, as well as a working environment that allow them to work seamlessly.

Synergy can be improved by clear definition of roles and responsibilities of the members of a group. This minimizes confusion and ensures each member of a team has their own important, but essential, part in the overall project. It is also essential to create a sense of community where members can freely share resources without feeling secluded. When team members can freely solicit help from other members, or provide assistance with an assignment that isn’t their skill set, it’s a sign of an extremely collaborative and cohesive team.

A high level of synergy could also lead to a more efficient and productive team, as well as the possibility of a lower rate of turnover. Additionally, this kind of high-performing environment is great for morale.

Managers are often blinded by the potential negative effects of viewing synergy in a pure form. They rush to promote cooperative efforts as examples to be emulated throughout the company. This could lead to a distraction of management time and resources away from other important business issues.

Regular checks-ins and feedback mechanisms can be important to keep the team on track and focused. This helps keep the team informed of the progress it is making and provides a constant stream of ideas that can be addressed as they arise.
