    • Unwilling to be vulnerable within the group

  • Fear of conflict

    • Seekingartificial harmony over constructive passionate debate

  • Lack of commitment

    • Feigning buy-in for group decisions creates ambiguity throughout the organization

  • Avoidance of accountability

    • Ducking the responsibility to call peers on counterproductive behavior sets low standards

  • Inattention to results

    • Focusing on personal success, status and ego before team success


Planned obsolescence

Planned Obsolescence

  • Overarching Goal

    • To create an environment where the group can practice all of the high preforming team characteristics with minimal influence from the advisor.

  • Goals

    • Reduce the current dysfunctions, through group developments and individual meetings.

    • To have the group define their purpose on-campus, and within the region, and nationally.

    • To have the group determine their goals for the future, and create a two-year strategic plan to achieve them.

    • To shift accountability from the advisors to the group.

    • Allow the group to struggle, to allow leadership and civil discourse.

    • Get out of their way, and allow them the space to be great.

Spend Some Time Tonight and Tomorrow Thinking about your ACTION PLAN! Remember that these are those smaller steps you need to take in order to accomplish your goals. They should be: SMART! Action plans should answer the questions: What needs to be done? How should it be done? Who will do it? By when? What are the desired results? How will you know when you’ve succeeded?

GOALS: Big steps towards accomplishing your mission/vision. They should constitute a stretch (not something you know you can easily reach). They should be aligned withprinciples and values. Goals, when accomplished, should bring you closer to your vision..
