Turning the Five Habits of Dysfunctional Teams Around

Most working teams have a dysfunction of some kind, but some teams foster a dangerous habit of avoidance. While on the surface things might seem okay, fear of conflict can leave communication superficial and detached from performance goals. Turning the five habits of a dysfunctional team around, requires clear goals for individuals to be accountable, commitment from everyone involved and a leader who will coach and manage expectations while maintaining trust. Taking a dysfunctional group of individuals to a high performing functional team working well together.
