A Person Is Never The Problem


The answers to chronic problems in an organization are rarely, if ever, safely laid at the feet of one person. The wise leader will see past personalities and focus on the way individuals within the group relate to one another.

In organizations with healthy interdependence, members say things like these responses from our survey The Engagement Dashboard (TED):

-When a problem repeats itself, I understand that I may be part of the problem.

-My actions are influenced by those around me, even though I am ultimately responsible.

-In turn, my actions influence those around me.

-The way people interact with each other takes on a predictable pattern over time and that offers real insight into the way people work around here.

Honest question – would your team members agree with these statements?
