Lack of communication can also lead to tensions in the team, leading to conflicts or misunderstandings. A lack of mutual trust can also make it difficult to achieve meaningful results. In addition, if there is an excessive focus on the differences between team members rather than their similarities, it can hinder progress in meeting objectives.
Overall, I believe that teams are most successful when everyone involved feels comfortable enough to share their thoughts and opinions openly while also having respect for each other’s contributions—regardless of differences in background/culture. As long as this mutual understanding is present amongst all parties involved then it’s likely that their collective efforts will result in improved performance.
