Team effectiveness is at the core of any organization. Understanding the Five Dysfunctions of a team is critical to overcoming these challenges and creating a stronger team. Whether it’s in business, non-profits or volunteer organizations, teams are essential to the organization’s success, however teams can also be the reason for their failure.
This session will look at Patrick Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions and present new ideas to overcome the Absence of Trust, Fear of Conflict, Lack of Commitment, Avoidance of Accountability and Inattention to Results.
Just by the virtue of having a team, challenges can develop that will block the effectiveness of the team. By understanding these dysfunctions and knowing how to overcome these challenges, leaders will have greater success at developing effective teams.
By the end of this session, attendees will understand how to define the team and their objectives, evaluate the current make-up of the team and develop a path forward to overcome these common dysfunctions. Leaders must know how to hold others and themselves accountable for the success of the team.
