If you ask yourself why team collaboration often fails, then it's usually due to the group dynamics. And from the beginning, even if that Team meets for the first time.


Group dynamics begin at the first meeting

At the first meeting of the team, group dynamic processes begin - some also say “group hydraulic” processes.

Ranking and pecking orders are tested, positions of all kinds are filled, defended and challenged, alliances are forged, sub-groups formed - and this continues until the microcosm of that group is its own Order found and everyone has their place in the group.

Even after that, such processes continue, because now positions are to be improved and so on. This is not very professional, but very human and above all: inevitable.

This is a complex task that often requires spontaneous decisions, but the effectiveness of the team will thank you.

Form from the team a whole

In this phase of the team, the task is to create a functioning whole from the often unpredictable and variable parts, the team members. Very classical creativity.

And it's not even that difficult. This phase serves namely Orientation of the team members and sets the basis as well as the cornerstones of the team spirit, i.e. the character and the self-image of the team.

The bad reputation of teamwork

Teamwork has a bad reputation because group dynamic processes make life difficult for the team. Rational, hierarchical leadership patterns can do that Problem solve only superficially.
