When developing a team, leaders always consider the balance between a great team climate and accountability towards high standards.
Some consider those to be on a ⚖ balancing scale.
They are in fact on two separate axes.
Depending on the level of psychological safety and performance pressure – there are 4 zones your team might be in.
The best one, with a great team climate and performance pressure towards great results, is called the Learning Zone.
It’s natural for your team to switch between zones, but you should always focus on being in the learning zone.
