Every leader wants to have a dynamic team.
Too few leaders understand how to build a dynamic team.
So often, we wrongfully assume our teammates are the problem. Sure, at times, a team member may need to be assigned to a new group or released to be a free agent. However, most of the time, our leadership behaviors kill our team because our behavior carries the most weight in the team.
Are you the most significant problem on your team?
I offer you 10 foolproof ways to kill your team. I’ll expand on each item below, but if you’re a “give me the list upfront” kind of person, here you go:
1. Meet only when there is a crisis.
2. Allow the strong personalities to dominate the discussion.
3. Allow team decisions to be undermined by private meetings after the team meeting.
4. Have your mind made up before you get input from the team.
5. Remain inflexible in the face of new information.
6. Cut off debate.
7. Don’t hold team members accountable for their assignments.
8. Ignore the intangibles.
9. Expect more of the team than you expect of yourself.
10. Take individual credit for the accomplishments of the team.
