5 Mistakes in Designing & Leading Teams

The slides above share some interesting ideas on trip wires or mistakes that are common in designing and leading teams, and 3 ideas on improving team work.

  1. Call the performing unit a team but really manage members as individuals.
  2. Fall off the authority and accountability balance beam.
  3. Assemble a large group of people, tell them in general terms what needs to be accomplished, and let them “work out the details.”
  4. Specify challenging team objectives, but skimp on organizational supports.
  5. Assume that team members already have all the competence they need to work well as a team.
