The company is creating a “special task committee” to tackle the growing number of customer complaints around a new product that was just launched. They are looking for representatives from each department to round out the committee that will meet once a week.
After you decide that hiding under your desk is probably not the most professional thing to do, before you can raise your hand, you are chosen to represent your department.
Will it be the same old thing? One person dominates the committee while the entire group goes round and round every week discussing painful details about how to solve the issue.
Well-functioning teams can be very valuable while ill-functioning teams can simply weigh down the issue and be a big huge time-suck.
There are so many tools, methods, pathways to creating a great team where the phrase “two heads are better than one” can benefit your company exponentially.
