Lea Thinking Communication Team Self Management Role & Culture Team This section of the pyramid focuses on team dynamics that exist in the workplace. We take a look at the mentality and attitudes team members bring to working with others. • Peer Interaction: While you don’t need to be best friends with your coworkers, each person should bring civility to the workplace. Respect is necessary to allow each person the space to do their work in their own way. This sub-category is great for when certain things have been bottled up or brushed under the carpet in the past; move forward and create an environment of respect. • Accountability: Only effective teams are made up of individuals who are able to take personal ownership of their projects and responsibilities. Each individual doing so allows the team to thrive. • Collaboration: If we as a group can leverage the individual strengths of each person here, where everyone is responsible for their own actions, then the sum becomes greater than its parts. As a team, we can accomplish more than individuals on their own. LIVE WEB COMPLEXITY OF DELIVERY REQUIRED OPENNESS OF TEAM
