The Cost of Immaturity
Mature teammates respond with an appropriate reaction. They dismiss the irrelevant and respond to the important. The immature live in the irrelevant and thus the energy of a team is too often wasted on them. Giving teammates too much responsibility too soon will cost the team valuable energy during the inevitable learning curve that must take place. Unfortunately, with all learning, maturity is a choice and the team will be at the mercy of the choices of an immature decision maker.
