Competition within a team is often good as it promotes the productivity of the workers. They are able to challenge each other to become better, and if handled well, it becomes an asset to the company. However, destructive competition is often a part of the organization.
This is where team members compete against each other, focusing on their own goals and objectives, rather than those of the team (Levi, 2010). In such a case, the end justifies the means, and the destruction of the competitor is what will guarantee one’s success. However, this leads to a breakdown of communication between team members, leading to distrust, fear and animosity. As this is the case with my team, something must be done before the destructive competition between the two stars destroys the team.
