Psychologies | Upfront Ideas
“Getting anything done first thing in the morning is tough when you’re feeling sleepy, but instead of going on a coffee run, team up with a group of tired colleagues. New research has shown that a group of tired people is more effective when they work as a team than on their own. When you’re tired, you can’t think flexibly, so struggle to find successful solutions, says Daniel Frings, a lecturer in social psychology. But being part of a team counteracts that inflexibility and helps get things done.”
Who would have thought? Tired person + tired person + tired person = synergy. You can still have synergy when the group is tired. How many people would have experienced this then? I suppose each person could be tired in a different way which would then negatively and positively affect the work from a different standpoint. This means you can catch each others’ faults as they arise.
