It’s human nature that we wish to be heard. Our natural born instinct is to contribute. We naturally seek affirmation that we are of value. Quite often in the work place when a Manager or Team Member seeks to display those traits, it comes at the cost of someone else being quashed.
The reverse can be true... where all can benefit and succeed... this is the essence of successful team work: Symbiotic Synergy.
Symbiosis reflects a mutually beneficial relationship, where the success of one means the success of another. We commonly see this in the relationship of the clown fish and the anemone.
Synergy is the concept that the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts. In team work terms, the knowledge and skill sets of the individual members are of most value when they are combined and the collaboration of them will result in greater outcomes. Sort of like 1 + 1 = 11.
Symbiotic Synergy breeds respect, innovation, creativity and an ongoing culture of development. Mistakes aren’t punished; they are accepted as lessons and used to grow and evolve. The political blame game is disintegrated and replaced by a culture of responsibility, accountability and collaboration. Creative thinking is no longer a special event; it's a daily occurrence that breeds acceptance and superior innovation.
Symbiotic Synergy celebrates individual differences in knowledge, skill sets and work practice via a balanced collaboration, driving the organisation to heights that a traditional Management style could never hope to achieve.
