Using Principles, Guidelines and Boundaries
We've all heard the saying that two heads are better than one. People generally can accomplish more working together than they can individually. This is called synergy. Synergy means that the whole working together is greater than the sum of the individual parts working independently (1 + 1 =3 or more). Achieving true synergy within the team setting is no small task. Working together as a team can be frustrating. The challenge is to create a team environment where there is enough freedom for people to be creative, yet enough organization so that work can get done effectively and efficiently.
