Removing Barriers To Increase Team Productivity
You know the feeling when something doesn't feel right with your team.
You can’t put your finger on it, and you feel really uncomfortable talking about it with them, worried about being put down, ignored. Plus you don't want to seem like a your the crazy one for speaking up.
There may be times when your team members aren’t communicating really well, they just keep talking over one another or not speaking up at all.
Maybe they’re not engaged and everyone is off doing their own thing. Or there are a few people who get into some really heated arguments which derails the whole team.
Sometimes you might even want to question, why are we doing the things that we do, and where are we headed.
These are all symptoms of a shaky team culture.
