Teams in corporate, church world and sports are made up of many moving parts and people. Every individual has their own perspective and ideas of how something should flow. Everyone looking for their idea or way to be implemented in the overall plan. Two of the greatest team killers I have seen in my experience is number one lack of communication and the other assumptions.
When these two elements are present, the team is sure to implode no matter how talented they may be. Communication must be clear, if not, everyone is left to think their idea is the one and this leads to assuming.
So as a leader how do you diffuse this problem. You make every effort to clearly communicate the goals and the intent of the organization at every turn. If not, you open the door to these team killers.
