Resisting Fearful Criticism
It’s important for a team to discuss decisions before moving forward. Gaining input from different perspectives is a huge benefit of working on a team rather than acting alone. Not all input is created equal. Concerns and questions are good. Critical statements based on fear must be resisted at all costs. If a team becomes accustomed to entertaining fear as a motivating factor in their decision making, they will step off the path of effectiveness and onto a path of comfortable mediocrity.
