QUESTIONS TO ASK TO COUNTER STRATIFICATION
Do we have important skills that are not captured by our formal roles and responsibilities?
Can we better utilize the basic skills and experiences of our group by working together beyond as well as within our formal, functional responsibilities?
Could some of us build skills in other areas, and thereby help strengthen the overall capabilities of the group?
Can we break up hierarchical patterns by assigning work tasks based on skills rather than position?
Can we assign leadership roles to someone other than a manager?
