ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the disadvantages of negative teamworking in the workplace. He says success can breed over-confident group-think, making teams resistant to self-reflection or outside influence. Appointments are made in the image of the current team rather than to meet an objective assessment of future skill needs. What makes a big difference is a commitment to ethics, continuous self-challenge and critical questioning over complacent team practices.
