There’s no I in TEAM

Don’t spot one of these complex characters within your staff? Well, you may not be out of the woods. Perhaps you’re blessed with:

A Waffler
A Liar
A Perfectionist
A Pet
A Crybaby
A Flirt
A Weak Link

These too can turn your office into a five-ring circus. It’s up to you to maintain peace. If subordinates don’t have an incentive or motive for working with each other, they won’t.

So whether your players are in it for power, fame or kicks, bad behavior can make a sputtering system unmanageable. If you can’t call a truce, at least know when to call a time out. Because at the end of the day, you’re all working toward one goal. Right?
