According to a recent article by Target Training International (TTI), when teams becomes dysfunctional, trust breaks down, team members lose sight of team goals, they become confused about their role in the team, and they begin to play it safe and wait for direction to make any progress.
According to Casey Wilson of Management Concepts, nearly 75% of employees are disengaged. TTI further estimates that the average employee is disengaged two hours each day. Given the high cost of payroll, and more so in this economy, companies can hardly afford such a costly situation.
