Catch Word #108 – Teamwork

At Culips we work in a team, so here’s an episode with expressions used to talk about working in a group. We have a couple idioms that express how positive it can be to work in a group, and one that says sometimes working in a group can cause problems. Do too many cooks really spoil the broth? Are two heads really better than one? You’re the judge in this episode!

Maura:     Sometimes when you’re sitting at home and you’re trying to brainstorm by yourself, you can’t think of anything. And then when you turn to someone and you ask them about an idea, sometimes the ideas just come so much more easily.
Harp: I find that this works for us at Culips all the time. When it’s the two of us together working on something, it goes so fast.
Maura: Definitely. I don’t even waste time by myself thinking about all the different examples that we could use in our episodes. Now I just discuss them with you right before we record, and then our examples are even better because we had two heads thinking of it.
Harp: Yes, because two heads are better than one.
Maura: Yeah, two heads are better than one.
