"Teams learn to live with one another, to improve over time, but sometimes they forget and try to cut corners. Teams can also live in denial (for a while). Eventually, they have to face up stuff they’re doing that comes back to impact then later.

For me, it’s a bit more serious. I learned first-hand how to recognize when I do that, and how to recover when I do. Call me motivated: I have diabetes, have to watch my diet all the time, and I like having all my limbs.

In this talk I’ll describe some common unhealthily team practices, including forms of denial, and their consequences." and what I learned from my personal journey to improve and help teams sustain
