the Successful Team
I know that a team works best if there is a focus on both the rational and the irrational dynamics. When I develop leadership teams, high performance teams and work with dysfunctional teams, it is always with business in focus and people in the center.
You may have as much control over strategy, roles and tasks, but if you do not include the defense mechanisms, informal roles, values and culture, then you and your team do not perform at your best. Without authenticity, presence and trust, we lose faith in ourselves and each other. And that is not good for business.
