Isolation Drift

Great teammates understand that the greatest benefit of being on a team is never having to be alone. Isolation is a dangerous place to be because we operate without a backup. For some reason, teammates can tend to drift towards isolation. Maybe it’s the need to control the entirety of the project. Maybe it’s an aversion to feedback. Communication is a great way to prevent the isolation because it draws the teammate back towards valuable collaboration. Great teammates communicate to avoid their own drift towards isolation and reach out to others to pull them back towards collaboration.
