What really labels the successful leadership of teams? Today, the performance of teams is one of the critical success factors for the competitiveness of companies. That's why we have to ask which specific leadership tasks actually lead a team to high performance.
Related to this issue traditional leadership concepts are incomplete. They focus on the two-way relationship between supervisor and employee and fail to get to grips with the complexity, dynamics and frictional losses of teams. They define which competencies a leader should have, but do not take situational aspects into account and provide little orientation for everyday work.
The synergetic leadership model developed in the TEAMLEAD research project identifies six interrelated system functions with 23 specific leadership tasks that are crucial for the performance of teams. The concept strives for a targeted "self-control" of teams and departments that enables greater adaptability, faster reaction times and more flexible responses to the unexpected in modern "VUCA" work environments.

6 functions with 23 management tasks
Management of differentiation sets the boundaries and ensures clarity of purpose. A team needs a clear mission (system purpose) and must see itself as a unit. Resource management includes the acquisition of material and immaterial, financial and personal resources. Structure management deals with the social complexity in the team. Here the main focus is on defining clear roles and responsibilities. Managing time complexity is the task of process management. Process planning must solve the connection and synchronization problems caused by internal role differentiation. Reflection ensures the team's survivability by analyzing and improving its own functionality. Finally, development management prevents the system from being overloaded due to overtaxing tasks or excessive complexity.

Significant increase in performance!
The empirical studies conducted as part of the BMBF-funded research project were able to prove that synergetically managed teams and departments are significantly more efficient and create a better balance between the various performance criteria. They can handle a higher degree of complexity and develop an increasingly higher level of self-direction.
The synergistic leadership concept describes the leadership tasks critical to success for high-performance teams. It gives concrete recommendations for your own leadership behavior, and a readiness check for teams helps you to identify concrete potential for improvement in leadership behavior.
