If you’ve worked in teams long enough, you realize pretty quickly that most dysfunctions come down to the answer to just two questions –
How much do you care about the cause and about each other?
How much do you trust each other to do the right thing?
They tend to be related. The more you are sure your teammates care, the more you are likely to trust and vice versa.
You know the best part? Neither is an innate ability we are born with. Both involve us making a choice.
