Adding new members impacts the culture and dynamics of the team and recently the PPMC has added several new people. One of my favorite management books is The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, by Patrick Lencioni, which has helped us on this journey. The book provides a roadmap to creating a culture where not only the work thrives, but so do the people. The second dysfunction of any team is the “fear of conflict.”
