Team work in the Federal work place is nonexistent in today's offices. There tends to be no communication and no leadership. The basis of the Federal work place seems to be about individuals instead of team work. Individually workers are keeping their KSA, knowledge, skills and abilities to themselves to protect their job security. Supervisors do little of the work and struggle to communicate a need/want to current employees.
Communication barriers exists as older supervisors can’t reach a younger work force. Ideas are lost in translation as an older managerial team continues to struggle with communication barriers. Communication is the foundation to any successful team. It all starts with the transfer or sharing of ideas and goals through communication. As we all know there are different ways to communicate with one another; verbal and nonverbal. Verbal is the most important for me when it comes to team building and development. While nonverbal is still important it’s the verbal communication that dictates whether a team will excel or fail .
Leadership continues to struggle to adapt to today's workforce. As the Federal work force continues to get younger and more technologically advanced leadership fails to keep up with trending technology. Without strong leadership the team tends to drift without purpose and will continue to chase itself in a circle without any positive outcome. One of the main problems that we are seeing in the corporate business today is team managers supervising teams as individuals but calling them a group or team. Instead of taking the teams ideas and suggestions as a group or team they breakdown each individuals ideas and goals and interns stains the very fabric of the team or group.
