Group Think

Not realizing that teams can gravitate towards group-think unless diverse skills and personalities are in the team. An optimal fit between personalities and job roles needs to be achieved. Skills include conscientiousness, creativity, resilience, diplomacy, etc, and team members should be allocated tasks based on both their personality and skill levels.
