Are You Having Trouble Finding the “Team” in Your “Teamwork?”
When it takes too much “work” to get groups together for a common purpose, you may have issues with communications styles.
Teams that work at top efficiency and really get along are rare! There are many reasons for this with the main reason being that team members have different communication styles. These styles can immediately come into conflict when members are grouped together trying to reach consensus or convey information.
Almost inevitably, a team is led by at least one dominant member. Conflict can arise if there are other dominant personalities who vie for the leadership position. In addition, even if other team members don’t outwardly disagree, many are simple not on board or engaged enough to show how they feel. Worse yet, many disengaged members leave the meeting not being supportive or not communicating the team’s mission correctly.
Many of these styles and communication deficiencies can be neutralized with an understanding of what “makes people tick.” Starting a team with a thorough understanding of themselves and others goes a long way to help launch a team into maximum productivity and success.
