• Synergy: a group’s ability to outperform even its best individual contributors.
• Process Loss: a loss in productivity due to a malfunction in the way a group is working together.
• Group Process: the way a group coordinates its efforts to complete a task.
When a group capitalizes on the joint capacities of its members, the gains are more than additive, they are exponential. To reap these benefits the group has to be mindful of its process and attempt to minimize process loss. As a process consultant it's my job to help my clients achieve synergy by focusing on what's happening with their group in the moment while they work. If you'd like to learn more about process consultation, check out my Skillshare classes: Revolutionize Your Team I: Group Process and High Performance Teams and Revolutionize Your Team II: Problem Solving and Trips to Abilene. I'm also available for on-site training and process consultation.
