The way teams make decisions is directly correlated to the thinking styles of the team members involved. Understanding the decision making profile of a team, it's biases and blind spots can help improve team performance by increasing team awareness and preventing clustering or other typical limiting team behaviors.
The key reason for conflicts among team members is the lack of understanding and appreciation of each other behavior and communication styles. Also understanding the makeup of a team can help identify gaps or help each individual maximize their performance by finding role where they can behave in their most comfortable way.
We are all driven by different aspects throughout our live and at any point in time the motivations of team members will be different and can even be the source of major conflicts that impact performance. Helping the team understand those differences can help mitigate their influence and unleash potential.
