As a team leader, you may have noticed that some team members exhibit behaviors that hinder their progress and the team’s overall performance. They might be struggling with self-doubt, often referred to as the “Hedgehog” in The 5 Chairs model. In this article, we’ll explore how you can support these team members and help them overcome their self-doubt to reach their full potential.

Recognizing the Hedgehog

Some common behaviors that may signal a team member is struggling with self-doubt include:

  • Denying responsibility
