Team Synergy

The definition of synergy is two or more things functioning together to produce a result not independently obtainable. In other words, the whole is greater than sum of its parts. This certainly is the case with high-performing teams. They find a way to coalesce into a unit that gets along and produces results far in excess of the capabilities of a group of individuals.


The best teams also have a fine compliment known as a great leader. Many of you have heard my definition of leadership which is: Leaders impact culture. Indeed, solid leaders build a sense of team. Along the way, they also provide a vision of the future that serves as a roadmap to show where the team is going.


If you are leading a team and are desirous of team synergy or a greater sense of team, take stock and look in the mirror. When you do, you will be staring at the person who sets the tone, the vision, and enables an otherwise disjointed group of individuals to come together and conquer all.
