Five flaws of a team model
Like it or not, all teams are potentially bad. This is inevitable because they are made of fallible, imperfect humans. From the basketball coach to the executive suite, politics and confusion are more the rule than the exception. However, it is especially important to combat procrastination at the top of an organization and focus on teamwork because the executive team determines how all employees work with each other. Luckily, there is hope. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the causes of procrastination are both identifiable and treatable. The first step toward reducing politics and confusion within your team is to understand what the five problems entail, and address one by one that applies.
DYSFUNCTION #1: Lack of Trust
The fear of being insecure with team members inhibits the building of trust within the team.
Viciousness #2: Fear of Conflict
The desire to maintain artificial harmony suppresses the occurrence of productive, ideological conflict.
Viciousness #3: Lack of Commitment
A lack of clarity or buy-in prevents team members from making the decisions they will stick to.
Dysfunction #4: Avoiding accountability
The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding each other accountable for their behavior and performance.
DYSFUNCTION #5: Inattention to Results
The pursuit of individual goals and individual status focuses on collective success.
