Collaborative teams typically lead to enhanced productivity and results. So, when a team is firing on all cylinders, they are working in the best of ways. However, if a team is dysfunctional, it can fall apart very quickly. The problem is that many teams operate as a team in the name only. This means that the group of people are declared as a team but do not operate as a team.
Now, there are a few reasons why a team is dysfunctional One reason could be weak leadership where dominate personalities derail the overall mission causing the other members to adapt accordingly since the person at the helm is not steering in the right direction. Another reason could be having a “lone ranger” team member. These people disrupt the team dynamic by going out on their own and believing more in their ability than they do in the team’s ability to complete the task. Actions like this create a disconnect amongst the other members and cause a lack of trust and collaboration.
