Wright (2013), in his seminal work on The Myths and Realities of Teamwork, advances the six myths about teamwork below.
Myth 1 Teams are Harmonious People who Compromise their Needs for the Sake of Teams. With the diversity of personalities and skills? Harmony?
Myth 2 Team Conflict is Unhealthy. Is it?
Myth 3 Most People Like Teamwork. What about the “solo worker” “lone ranger”?
Myth 4 Teamwork is Essential to Business Success. For every job and task?
Myth 5 Teams are Easy to Influence and Manage. With team complexity?
Myth 6 Senior Managers Encourage Teamwork. No apprehension whatsoever?
Are they myths in verity? Is it the reality? What do you say?
