The functionality of almost every team falls somewhere between Dysfunctional and Cohesive. The question is, how close (or far) from Cohesive are you?
In many ways, a dysfunctional team is like an iceberg. We may see the behaviors associated with dysfunction, but we may not see the underlying causes of those behaviors because those causes and issues are “below the waterline.”
The critical employee issues that exist below the water line include:
- Absence of Trust
- Fear of Conflict
- Lack of Commitment
- Avoidance of Accountability
- Inattention to Results
When the first four issues are overcome, the results will follow. Great teams understand, pay attention to, and proactively work to overcome these dysfunctions, in order to build cohesiveness.
Let us help you build a cohesive, positive, and productive team.
