Team Roles and Organisational Culture - Too much Shaper behaviour?
Shapers are likely to be competitive. If an organisation continues to recruit Shapers (and only Shapers) on the basis that they are hard-driving, high-profile and successful individuals, they are likely to end up with a culture rife with internal conflict.
In this kind of culture, other Team Role contributions will likely be neglected or overwhelmed. Shapers are used to calling the shots and nothing stirs them more than the presence of other Shapers.
Since other Team Roles barely figure, there is no teamwork and complications multiply.
