Indionesian Teams


Indonesians are happier working towards a clearly defined team goal than when given specific individual targets. As a basically group-oriented society where worth and status are derived from the family or group to which a person belongs, it is seldom necessary to spend too much time developing a good 'team spirit'.

However, it is important to ensure that the team feels secure and that all situations where team members might 'lose face' are kept to a minimum. The skilful team leader is acutely aware of the notion of 'face' and will be alert to any situations which threaten the sense of harmony within the group.
