What alerted me to the sudden shift in the group’s mentality 35 36 AT T E N T I O N , C O O P E R AT I O N , P U R P O S E was the way that the thought of this punitive back-payment seemed to create a certain frisson of excitement in the room. However, it seemed that I was the only one who sensed that the agreed purpose had unconsciously turned from negotiation to revenge. I questioned the proposal and warned the group that I was pretty sure it would be experienced as a provocation rather than a genuine negotiating position.
The purpose kept proving to be elusive in meeting after meeting. Even though no one had explicitly agreed to a change in direction, it would shift to getting the group organised or sorting out tensions over membership, leadership, or friendship. The alternative activities they engaged in at different times seemed endless: fetching coffee, answering texts, working out dates, choosing a leader, dealing with a problem with another group, sorting out a way of working, agreeing the agenda or a name for the group, finding a suitable room to work in, exchanging email addresses, or just “getting to know each other better”.
The time pressures forced them to give focused attention to their purpose. As a consequence, it is likely that the quality of their thinking was limited and impoverished and their planning solutions for the event would almost certainly have been based on approaches that had been used in the past. When group members turn their backs on reality for protracted periods of time in this way they can become incapable of realising their potential, even immobilised. They are stuck with old answers or explanations and trapped in an emotional rut so that they are condemned to re-enact established patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that are past their sell-by date.
