A team complex is a team dynamic, a hidden force, that operates within a team. Whilst some team dynamics can help team performance, a team complex is a potential dysfunction. It can prevent a team from adopting, from responding appropriately to certain situations.
Performing well together
- A team is a group of people who are collectively responsible for achieving a shared goal.
- Teams can be led or self-managing. If one member fails then it can hinder the achievement of the collective goal. If the members do not support the leader, then the task can fail.
- Even if the members fulfill their individual roles but they don’t work synergistically or collaboratively, then they may not fulfill their potential or achieve as much as they could.
- The most important foundation you can lay, when building better collective performance, is that of common understanding, commitment to the shared goal, and agreement on how to work together.
