Expected behaviors of a self-organized team

Picture by Creative DonkeyFollowing a recent post on the topic of self-organization, I’m offering a few examples of how people react / should react when a team is self-organized.

 

Not self-organized Self-organized
  • Waits to be told what to do
  • Figures out what needs to be done
  • Is a victim of circumstances
  • Is responsible for his actions
  • Gossips about the motives
  • Seeks information to understand
  • Whines about the constraints
  • Attempts to operate within the constraints
  • Complains about his colleagues’ performance
  • Holds his colleagues accountable
  • Waits for rules to be defined
  • Defines the rules of operations
  • Reactive
  • Proactive

What other behaviours have you noticed?
