What is it that makes for successful learning in teams. For some it is care. Others it is trust. Tim Fergerson suggests that it is commitment.
Commitment to building mutual trust and respect, and having open and honest dialogue won’t necessarily mean the team will encounter fewer issues, or find themselves free from pressure in the future. It will, however, give the team greater capacity to deal with these situations as they arise, and allow the team to resolve them in a more timely and productive way. This in turn leads to improved performance. (Source)
This commitment comes through in a number of ways, whether it be mutual respect, shared understanding and open dialogue.
