Five ways to promote synergy in your organization
Has it ever occurred to you that you walk in a room full of people whom you claim to know, but in reality, you cannot connect?
It's a very typical scenario, especially in more prominent organizations with multiple branches and departments.
You may bump into someone with whom you have been working for more than a year or so, but you don't know them. Generally, this does not have any significant impact on overall productivity. Still, in the long run, when you share a familiar brand's name and vision, it's impairing not to know someone so close.
Also, understanding the roles, responsibilities and functions of other departments can boost collaborative skills. The potential energy will slightly gain momentum when one department understands the relevance of their task in the overall big picture.
Let's see how can you promote synergy in your organization.
