Is your team cohesive? What does that even mean?
Maybe ask yourself is you team dysfunctional?
Even if it was you probably wouldn’t admit is straight away. In fact you may even focus on all of the positives and create a story about how functional it really is. The truth is, if you start looking at some of the behaviours in your team, it soon becomes clear what isn’t working. In fact you may now just accept that that is just the way it is.
Well we don’t believe that you should settle for dysfunction when you can choose to be cohesive
Common dysfunctions are seen so often, that we do accept them. Teams that choose to not accept anything but cohesion, know that it takes work, commitment and trust.
Ask yourself how often do you see these behaviours in your teams.
- Not naming the elephant in the room
- Not rocking the boat or hurting peoples feelings
- Secrets, half truth or blame
- Working in cliques, silos or power alliances
- Ego above collective results
- Wasted time and energy on politics and people issues
- Saying what you think you should say, not what should be said.
- Not challenging each other
- Meetings are dull and nothing really gets achieved.
