The Complex Roots

There is usually a mixture of root causes when examining how a team responds to a problem. The history of the leadership’s expectations can shape how a team responds to adverse conditions. A team member’s individual experiences to similar problems in the past can dictate how they respond. That response can trigger a response in another teammate. Team dynamics are complex because the identity of the team is an amalgam of all the personalities and personal histories present on the team, many of which subconsciously influence the different reactions to various situations. This means that there is usually a lot more to our team’s story than any one of us is aware. This is one reason why giving our team the benefit of the doubt is a good idea.
