Focus on emergent properties

The sum of the parts is greater than the whole is the idea of emergent properties in everyday language. When you are creating any complex system (a group of people is a complex system), the group start to develop behaviors, competencies, and skill sets (properties) that the individuals in the group don’t have or have significantly reduce property. If you see yourself as a mover and shaker of people (you can call it manager or leader or the angel of humanity), you should spend time finding out which emergent properties can be added, increased, reduced and removed. That what will distinguish that group you are part of from others!
