If your organization needs help improving how team members work together, be sure to avoid these 3 missteps when attempting to improve how your teams work together.
#1 – Avoid overemphasizing the importance of teamwork to such an extent that individual accountability is lost.
#2 – Overemphasizing ‘learning to play nicely together’ and offering team building programs that are perceived to be ineffective time-wasters can lead to an environment where team building is not taken seriously.
#3 – Assuming that every individual will be able to become a solid team player is a fallacy. The truth is, some individuals can only work ‘solo’. And, some individuals will not be able to be the kind of team contributor that a particular team requires.
