Does your team has a messenger...

...willing to be shot?
Continuous upward feedback is critical for healthy and ever evolving team.
Happy positive (and sometimes sugar coated) feedback is easy to peddle around.
For the negative or critical feedback to happen someone in your team should be willing to stretch his neck out deliver the message.
Do you have people like that on your team?
Are you cultivating a set of people willing to stick their neck out?

Is your team ticking off a process checklist ...

or are they building a culture?
Many organizations use process as a set of checklist which need to be ticked off and forgotten.
Instead use process as a means to build a culture. Eventually a culture of doing things in a certain way will ensure consistent and successful results because things are done by instinct rather than by process.

Are your managers and leaders accountable to ...

... people below them?
In a corporate environment accountability above is enforced, but what about the other way around?
Not only your leaders should be downward accountable for their actions, they should also be seen to be doing so.
