A positive effect that influences each of the participants due to their contribution, participation, and teamwork.

For example, person A and person B are doing the project closely together, which helps and educates both of them, while at the same time moves the project forward, how can this positive, ______ effect be called?

P.S. Please, tell me if you do not understand clearly what I mean, I will try to rephrase. Thank you!

  • I am personally having trouble understanding what it is you mean... You're looking for one word that simultaneously means helps, educates and moves the project forward? – bendl Aug 9 '17 at 12:46
  • I think learning experience for the people. (Potentially praxis if you want to use a fancy but obscure term.) Is that about right? But "___ effect" calls for an adjective like enlightening or enriching. – stevesliva Aug 9 '17 at 15:18
  • @bendl It's the effect that affects each participant due to their contribution. You contribute to the project, I contribute and from doing that we get the effect that affects each of us, something like "each-side-affective". – Eduard Aug 9 '17 at 15:31

    It sounds like you're suggesting something along the lines of mutually beneficial. Am I on the right track? – bendl Aug 9 '17 at 15:34
  • @bendl Mutual! Exactly! Thank you! Could you write a separate answer, so that I could accept it as the correct one? – Eduard Aug 9 '17 at 17:43

Mutually beneficial

Mutually beneficial implies that two or more parties are involved in some activity, and that their involvement positively affects each party individually.

  • It was a very close one, that I managed to found by myself, but not exact. Forgot to mention it in my post. But thank you! – Eduard Aug 9 '17 at 17:45
