We can’t say it enough at the moment: we know that there’s more to the current crisis than Team Roles. But events are unfolding quickly. Many managers can’t see their teams. Our professional and personal worlds are overlapping more than ever.
In this environment, it’s useful to have a common language we can use to describe differences in why people behave and react as they do, so that individuals, teams and organisations can ensure that their business response is appropriate and measured.
So, we wanted to talk about the different ways that people respond to a crisis. As ever, we’ve distilled characteristics into each Team Role for ease of reference, but of course, each of us has several Team Role strengths which nuance our behaviours.
