Don’t Make Assumptions About Team Behavior

“Assumptions can derail team dynamics,” says Vicki Halsey, VP of applied learning at The Ken Blanchard Companies. “But replacing those assumptions with researched action not only replaces frustration with focus, it also increases team success.”

“Many people assume individuals called together to serve on a team will automatically know what the team is trying to achieve and how to gain alignment, set group goals, and identify individual roles—they even assume a plan is in place for dealing with the conflict that inevitably occurs.”

Those assumptions are seldom true, says Halsey.
