Group Flow - What!?

Flow can also be achieved together with others!

The general belief is that the flow experience is activated when an individual experiences psychological detachment without external stimuli. However, achieving flow does not necessarily require solitary work away from others. Flow can also be experienced together with others. Group flow (or team flow) occurs when the members of a group are able to immerse themselves in an interdependent task and be satisfied together.

In flow, it is important that challenges and skills are in the right balance. If the task is too difficult, achieving flow can be challenging, while a task that is too easy may feel insignificant and even boring. In group flow, tasks can become easier through collaboration, and maintaining flow may require new challenges.

Although it is commonly thought that immersion in groups or teams requires time and getting to know each other, the emergence of flow in different groups does not necessarily require a deep understanding of other team members, and flow can be achieved quite quickly. Flow can be experienced in various types of groups, and there are research-based tips for creating it.

Flow has been observed to not only enhance performance but also improve a group's happiness and positivity. Group flow has also been found to support risk-taking, for example. But is flow always beneficial? Read the article below for more information.
