Even in business synergy works! One does not have to be disrespectful of other people to be open and honest. In fact, when the other people are mature enough to accept the different viewpoints individuals have, the ideas flow more freely and can even build upon one another to the benefit of the company as a whole. Having a group of people involved in this process who are empathetic listeners certainly does help because the environment is none threatening. Furthermore; it doesn’t require anyone involved in attempting to tap the synergistic process to be on the defensive about their views in a group setting.
