A team is a group of people with complementary skills who perform a task to achieve common results. Ultimately, a work team is made up of professionals with complementary skills who must achieve a common goal.
Reasons why teamwork is important:
Surely you remember experiences in which you have been part of a work team and where the interaction of people was the key to an amazing result.
Let's see some examples:
The situations described show the potential of teams and their importance beyond individualities.
However, synergy is not always positive.
Let's see an example:
The sales director of a nationwide department store has decided to form a special team to prepare a report on customer satisfaction of the company's services. The team is made up of six people, all from the sales area, but with different geographical areas. Due to geographical and time limitations, the team met only once and it was one of the members who ended up making the report agreed with the director.
The previous case is an example of negative synergy. Not all team members contributed and collaborated in the same way. This type of behavior in the team reduces the effectiveness of working together and limits the potential for synergy.
That is why it is important that all team members develop their potential to benefit from the effects of positive synergy.
Synergy is the sum of individual energies that multiplies progressively, reflecting on the entire team. In this way, in human behavior, the work of two people is more than the simple sum of the parts. The result obtained is different from individualities.
The graphical way of representing it would be like this: 1 + 1 = 3
