In 30 years of experience, we have worked with great teams and mediocre teams, and we have also worked with the team of dysfunction.
What we see with dysfunctional teams is they never even tried to accomplish. They talked and talked and talked…and did not understand what was possible. No action was ever taken – just excuses and protests were made.
They all longed for something to change.
They provided no alternative to what they were doing now.
They were focused on what NOT to do.
They never dared to be different.
They never took risk.
They focused on incremental improvement.
They whispered behind others’ backs.
They never got an answer.
They gave up hope.
They quit caring.
As a result of all the dysfunction, we fired them as clients. We could not get them to their dream; it was too expensive to help them realize that they accomplished their vision (it was really that they accomplished their nightmare).
They needed a new vision and willingness to dare to try something different and did not know it. What is worse…they did not care. They only wanted to protect the tiny little world that each of them had individually built.
