Have you worked with teams that don’t communicate well? Or teams that don’t collaborate? What about teams that deliver late or with poor quality? Or maybe teams that are in constant negative conflict?

Or will the new members find themselves in the middle of a dysfunctional team, and end up unhappy and not delivering to their full potential?
Here are some of the things you can think about when you work with teams to create an environment where they can succeed.
