Unchecked Preferences

Guest Post

by Rick Packer

This month’s Thoughts from the Field (September, 2022) is written by Rick Packer, my colleague in Atlanta, GA. In the article, Rick talks about the necessity of “setting aside individual preferences to focus on the collective good” within a team. He also highlights some real world illustrations of how team leaders can practice this discipline, based on the The Five Dysfunctions of a Team model.

This is always a tough concept to live out, so I know you’ll find Rick’s article helpful!
