- Commitment: The lack of clarity and/or buy-in prevents team members from making decisions they stick to.
- Accountability: The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding each other accountable for their behaviors and performance.
- Results: The pursuit of individual goals and personal status erodes the team’s focus on collective success.
- Deeper levels of alignment, commitment and engagement
- Understanding of the dysfunctions that keep teams from being healthy and effective
