Sample Sentences & Example Usage
Human brain provides us an amazing example of organizational teamwork. You see, the left and right halves of human brain do function slightly differently, and yet they don't work independently or in an isolation or even in a never-ending competition as the myth goes. The two halves always work seamlessly together as a unique system; offering a perfect teamwork between the logical and the intuitive, between the analytical and the creative. The Corpus Callosum, the main nerve bundle or the white matter that joins the two halves, facilitates and synergistically coordinates the communication between these different parts of the brain to ensure the effective functioning of human body. In my view, this is a classic example of teamwork and coordination, created by none other than the Supreme Power to enlighten us.
