A Cost of Efficiency
When precious bandwidth is taken, there is little time to seek information beyond a snap judgment. Individuals are often judgmental because they are often striving for efficiency in thought and action. The cause is often not personal but that doesn’t make it any less diminishing to the “judged” individual. When we as a team allow this to happen, there is a cost of trust and freedom in our team culture. Being on a team should be a freeing experience that is inclusive of personalities working together to achieve more than any individual could alone. We have to fight our individual nature that seeks to limit and rob others of freedom and thus the joy and fun of the team experience.
