After a staff meeting once at Grace Community Church the realization occurred to me that I served on a healthy team. I got to pondering, however, what made it that way. I think healthy teams are intentionally created, so wherever I serve I’m consistently trying to make our environment better.
I’ve written about healthy teams before:
My current thoughts have led me to believe that in our case, it’s as much about what we don’t have on our team as what we do have. I think our team works well together because we get along well with each other. (Most of the time.) It may have to do, however, as much with what we don’t bring to the time we spend time together, as it does what we bring to the that time.
Here are 7 things healthy teams check at the door:
- Closed minds
- Personal criticism
As I’ve said before, we aren’t a perfect team, but we work well together, we accomplish a great deal, and we enjoy what we do. (Most of the time.)
Do you currently serve on a healthy or an unhealthy team?
What would you add to my list?
