Don’t over-engineer an organization !
It is easy to obtain a team all moving in the same direction during hard times … look at the image and think about how simple this is.
What you see is people that have a clear objective, individual and team motivation, follow a leader of the team and … they are eager to get there.
What do you believe is the best team ? The “hard working manager with his somewhat lost team” or … the real leader, in the driving seat, setting guidelines and communicating key elements supporting a motivated team where each invididual knows his objectives and has the tools to get there ?
Pick your option … but don’t work too individually nor too hard !
