Dialogue is often a symptom

A symptom of leadership vacuum.

And it usually has nothing to do with great teamwork:

  • Endless conversation and no decisions cause frustration across the board.
  • It's a significant waste of time: five people conversing for an hour is not an hour but five hours. And if you have a "culture of dialogue", you will revisit the topic at least a hundred times. Count that.
  • Open dialogue does not even guarantee the best solution. You only ensure that you converse the first idea of the loudest person in the room.
  • All that time and frustration is consuming energy from getting things done.

There is a time and place for dialogue. But you got to do it right.

The lack of constraints and boundaries is a major disservice to everyone.

Including you.
