Featuring: "Laws of Teamwork," Weakest Link

 Salt Dental Practice Management Brings Success

"You are only as strong as your weakest link."

Thomas Reid's Essays on the Intellectual Powers of Man, 1786. He stated that, ""In every chain of reasoning, the evidence of the last conclusion can be no greater than that of the weakest link of the chain, whatever may be the strength of the rest."

Have you worked on a team where your weakest link drives your team into the ground? Or where one person seems to make it impossible to move forward? It doesn't mean you have to automatically get rid of this person, but you do need to ask some critical questions and make some changes. 

 It might be that this person is the best person for another position or that their strengths could be utilized elsewhere while the position they are in highlights their weaknesses.  However, it may mean they need to move on. Which ever direction is taken, it is important that this person not be allowed to continue in that position.

“Winning teams have competent players, The Law of the Chain from my book The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork states that the strength of a team is impacted by it weakest link. And that weakest link is always going to determine the load the team is able to carry.




The strength of the team is impacted by its weakest link.  You lose the respect of the best when you don’t deal properly with the worst. 

When people watch a person on a team, not step up, or not contribute it begins to take it's toll on everyone around them. It is important for leaders to change something to break the cycle. 

To Identify which areas you are having trouble with ask these questions:

  • What link (area) is holding us back from achieving more of our goal?
  • In what area are we constantly experiencing the most problems?
  • What area is really limiting our ability to improve?

    Once you have identified the area or the problem, next you need to design a plan of action.  Make the goal to improve the weakest link.
