Cohesive teams choose clarity over certainty

COMMIT TO DECISIONS: Support group decisions even if you initially disagree

Today’s Tip: Have a conversation with your team about the misconception that a commitment cannot be revisited after new information invalidates the wisdom of the initial decision.

Food for Thought: Even when there is no certainty that a decision is correct, cohesive teams choose clarity over certainty. They unite behind a decision and fully support it at least until new facts surface that may lead the team to change direction. High-functioning teams avoid assumptions and ambiguity and drive for a clear understanding about what they’ve decided on.
