Escalate what matters.

Great teams know how to categorize what is important and what is a distraction. Ordinary teams usually lack the discernment to know what is a big deal and what isn’t one. Picking battles is as easy as asking if something places a team on mission or not. If a concern or problem is presented that does not move the team towards the goal, then the leadership should do everything it can to de-escalate it. However, if a team problem is relevant to the mission, then leadership should do everything it can to escalate the issue to the point of resolution.
