Dissension, The Lazy Label of

One of the tell tale signs of a well functioning team is that its members hold each other accountable to any and all agreed upon expectations. 

When an organization or business sets lofty expectations for their employees and the treatment of their customers, it is absolutely the responsibility of every team member to hold each other accountable to the agreed expectations. 

After all, for many team members, it’s those lofty expectations that made them want to work there in the first place. 

When a lower level employee waves their red flag and says, “I thought we were supposed to be better than this.” It’s not dissension. It’s the opposite of dissension. It’s them following through on their role as a member of the team. (And isn’t that what you hired them to be?)
