The Lemmings Effect

When operating in a team environment, individuals often wait for someone else to take the lead.  This waiting effect is often detrimental, especially when plagued with tough deadlines.

Every team needs an initiator (head lemming) to get things started.  But instead of jumping off cliffs, the head lemming is willing to put forth the effort and work hard to achieve initial goals.  On most occasions, when other members of the team sense this, they will follow.  They will be motivated and strive to work hard also.  Just like lemmings.
