Esta tensión puede causar que muchos esfuerzos por cambiar fracasen, pero si se superan, el cambio puede llegar rápidamente.

Example text

The FIERCE team misinterprets this as arrogance or secretiveness. As a know-it-all, she makes her teammates feel irrational, overly emotional, or not very bright. Unfortunately, her need for more and more information before taking action immobilizes her. When she does take action, it’s sometimes done without having thought through the implications or consequences. She may act on unrealistic and unfounded hopes or optimism. The FIERCE team conflict can distract her logic and thinking. She may take on new projects or commitments impulsively, just to get away from the team and its squabbles.

FIERCE teams pursue success at the expense of them. FIERCE teams overemphasize the task or the goal, oblivious to relationships. This focus on the task prevents team members from seeing the difference between a healthy debate and a truly harmful conflict. Just about anything goes on a FIERCE team, all in the name of getting the truth out and the job done. ’’ Defensiveness runs high. Teammates forge alliances to survive, cope, or exert influence. Battle lines are drawn and redrawn. Each round reinforces these strategies, and FIERCE teams never emerge from the storming stage to enter the norming stage of team-building development.

We quickly distance ourselves from team members in trouble or under pressure to perform (unless helping them will make us heroes). We give cursory, insincere credit to the team when it succeeds, but the real credit goes to the individuals who did the main work. Jealousy over who’s getting credit runs rampant. Myth 5: We refrain from conflict and drama. There’s no place here for squabbling and pettiness. We all have a job to do, and we just do it. Everyone gets along so that we can get the job done.
