Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thoughts– John F Kennedy
Professional dogmatism is one disease that hinders team work among scientists and management experts. Organizations spend huge sums of money in the recruitment of experts.
When you put experts in one room as a team, what you have are different individuals with their own views which they are not willing to compromise.
Today’s thought re-emphasizes the importance of team work as the sine qua non to productive efficiency and effectiveness. The value of teamwork is embedded in the greater common good that results.
Once the greater good is seen to take precedence over individual need, the team begins to drive itself towards the objectives pre-set.
Many of our most serious conflicts are conflicts within ourselves. Those who suppose their judgments are always consistent are ineffective or dogmatic– John Rawls
