Engaging in 'The Blame Game'

When taking a risk that doesn't produce immediate results, team members point their fingers at others, rather than treating the situation as a learning opportunity for the good of the organization.

Monster – the world's largest and most well known employment website – released findings from an international survey looking into workplace stress. The poll's revelations were grim, with 42 percent of U.S. respondents revealing that they had "purposely changed jobs due to a stressful work environment." Even more troubling was the news that 66 percent of their employers had done "nothing" to alleviate the stress that had precipitated their resignations.

Considering that turnover can cost an organization up to 213 percent of a high-impact employee's salary, savvy leaders know that it's important to appreciate that big problems start with small signs. Drs. Dennis and Michelle Reina (authors of "Trust and Betrayal in the Workplace" and "Rebuilding Trust in the Workplace") have pinpointed eight common behaviors that team leaders should look for and address before they escalate into big organizational failures - lost contracts, missed deadlines, budget overruns, and the loss of key team members.
