Recipe for Success
When you find the recipe for success with an individual or group, it’s tempting to try and reproduce those characteristics. Particular attributes are hailed as invaluable to the organisation’s culture and become integral to recruitment processes, which are then set up to identify and select for those behaviours.
In very little time, the organisation develops a cloned culture, with like choosing like and everyone taking the same approach. Not only will the company discover that it is deficient in other roles, but also, as cracks start to appear, the weaknesses of the dominant Team Role are likely to become more and more pronounced.
