Too many Plants?

Belbin and Organisational Culture - too much Plant behaviour?

It might be tempting to recruit Plants for their innovative, pioneering mentality and unconventional thinking. However, where too many Monitor Evaluators cause stagnation through over-criticism, Plant culture destabilises any structure already in place.

With lots of ideas competing for attention and no one to assess their merits or practicality, a lot of creative effort may go to waste and talented individuals may be tempted to leave.
