1st dysfunction of a Team - The Absence of a Trust
      

The fear to be vulnerable with team members prevents the building of trust within the team. Vulnerability based trust. We have to help people get vulnerable. I’m sorry. I was wrong. I need your help. If just one member of the team has a problem with trust it affects the whole team. Whatever she said, people learned not to comment on. If someone did she would defend herself. We have to work with people to help them understand this. If you deal with this you can role up your sleeve and get work done faster, make decisions faster and better

.

        

The role of the leader is to be vulnerable. First, the leader has to set the stage by being open and vulnerable first. Can your people be smarter than you and be better than you? As leaders we have to understand the power of that. People will follow leaders into fire if they are honest, vulnerable and But you can’t fake it. If you are, you will be caught! Do not fake it. If it isn’t painful in the moment don’t do it. Trust is based on vulnerability. Why is it so important? Because, without trust we can’t go to the next level.

2nd dysfunction of a Team - Fear of conflict!



The desire to preserve artificial harmony stifles the occurrence of productive,ideological conflict.

Trust is the only way you get people to weigh in with each other on issues that count.  I’m not talking about personal issues here. I’m talking about ideological issues.  In organizations where we are here to do great work, conflict is critical!  We need to have this conflict up front instead of underlying and underground.

   
    

Conflict: the most important place for conflict to happen is in meetings. When you are a manager, going to meetings is what we do. The problem is that we go to too many bad meetings, not that we go to meetings. Meetings: What makes a great movie is conflict. There is something we care about. What makes a great meeting is conflict – something you care about! Meetings should be more interesting than movies. Movies are completely passive. Meetings are not. They are interactive and relevant. You will have to do something as a result.
