There’s a story told of a horse pull event at the county fair. In one event one horse pulled 9,000 pounds and another 8,000 pounds. Together they would be expected to pull 17,000 pounds. However, when they were paired together, the two horses were able to pull a total weight of 30,000 pounds.
That is called the principle of synergy. By definition, the simultaneous action of separate agents working together has a greater total effect than the sum of the individual parts. More can be done through team effort than can be accomplished by each individual member. In order for the principle of synergy to work, there has to be teamwork.
Everything we do takes teamwork and trust. Every person is valuable and needed.
