Dysfunction #3: Lack of Commitment

Dysfunction #3: Lack of Commitment

Dysfunction #3: Lack of Commitment 150 150 Bryce Henson

Last week we learned that only with strong team trust, can we engage in true healthy conflict. And only when we are able to engage in a healthy conflict where teammates feel heard, can a team get true commitment or “buy-in” from its people.

Why is this important?

Because if there is a lack of commitment, this prevents any team from making decisions that the company can stick to for the long term.

And you know that long-term consistency is an ally to leadership and results.

So if a company cannot stick to long-term commitments, there’s a lack of accountability to the results which is another downfall of any organization.

This is what we will discuss next week.

Simple concept, yet extremely important and not easy, as many leaders miss this approach. 

So to recap…

In order to lead any team, you need trust which fosters healthy conflict, healthy conflict, in turn, fosters commitment, and commitment fosters accountability.

Is this beginning to make sense?

More to come next week on dysfunction number 4 which is the avoidance of accountability.
