Team Conflict – Adversarial Employee – Part I
A problem will continue if it is not addressed. Someone needs to take the lead and communicate with the other members of the team that there is a problem.
It does not help to verbally bash the other team amongst your team. This creates animosity and destroys the ability for the teams to work together in the future. Each member will nitpick every comment and voice inflection of the other team jumping to the conclusion that the other team is out to get them in some manner or another.
Leaders must lead. Stand in the front, take blame where and when necessary, bring attention to issues that must be addressed and focus on completing the mission.
