Six common mis-perceptions about teamwork

A good article from Richard Hackman on some common misperceptions about team work published in HBR Blogs.

Excerpt below…

“Teamwork and collaboration are critical to mission achievement in any organization that has to respond quickly to changing circumstances. My research in the U.S. intelligence community has not only affirmed that idea but also surfaced a number of mistaken beliefs about teamwork that can sidetrack productive collaboration.

Misperception #1: Harmony helps. Smooth interaction among collaborators avoids time-wasting debates about how best to proceed.”

Please find the full article here. The author’s book on collaboration has a lot of useful insights for teams as well.

Cheers,

Rakesh
