#4 The Avoidance of Accountability
The essence of this team dysfunction is the team’s unwillingness to get “uncomfortable” in calling out other team members for destructive or unsupportive behavior toward the team. “Don’t rock the boat” is a familiar sentiment within this dysfunction? By holding each other accountable this demonstrates the respect and caring it takes to have the courage to confront a colleague. Withholding this accountability almost always creates resentment within the team for lowered standards and expectations of the team not being met. When there is healthy accountability within a team the level of performance within the team usually is elevated. This is particularly evident in sports teams, when a team leader will call out teammates to step up after a setback. Ways to create accountability within your team:

  • Publication of Goals and Standards
  • Simple and Regular Progress Reviews
  • Team Rewards

“Clarifying expectations sometimes takes a great deal of courage. It seems easier to act as though differences don’t exist and to hope things will work out than it is to face the differences and work together to arrive at a mutually agreeable set of expectations.” Stephen R. Covey
