Would you say at times your team seems more dysfunctional than functional? If so, you’re not alone. In this interactive session, we will discuss the five dysfunctions of a team (based on Patrick Lencioni’s best selling book with that same title): Absence of Trust, Fear of Conflict, Lack of Commitment, Avoidance of Accountability, and Inattention to Results.
In Part 1, we’ll complete a team assessment to determine which of the dysfunctions each leader’s team struggles with and we’ll address the first two dysfunctions: Absence of Trust and Fear of Conflict. We will also complete an assessment entitled the “I Speak” (or we can use any other personality assessment of your liking) to learn about his/her personality and how it impacts the team’s ability to trust and address conflict.
In Part 2, we’ll go into some specific strategies including how to establish commitment clarification, cascading communication, rules of engagement, and a team scorecard for helping you through the last 3 dysfunctions: Lack of Commitment, Avoidance of Accountability, and Inattention to Results. We’ll work through various tools team leaders can put into action with their teams to help them overcome these dysfunctions.
Teamwork remains a huge competitive advantage – because it’s so powerful AND it’s so rare!
