The Celebration Test

A teammate that has a hard time celebrating anything may in fact have a negative outlook that needs to be further assessed and eventually addressed. However, if a person is able to celebrate certain things but expresses concerns about others, they may just be honest and practical. Their challenge to an idea may be a valuable contribution to the team’s conversation. A leader must be careful to not to automatically equate dissent with negativity. To do so would create an unhealthy “positive-only” culture.
