Overcoming “The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team” - Patrick Lencioni’s Model
Working in a team presents greater challenges than working alone, but one person can’t play a baseball game by themselves, or play all of the instruments in a live symphony performance, or run a global company. Some things can only be accomplished by a team. What differentiates a team from a group? How can you contribute significantly to the quality and the results produced by the teams that you lead? Absence of trust, fear of conflict, avoidance of commitment, lack of accountability and inattention to results are the 5 dysfunctions that stand between teams and successful results. Unresolved conflicts, grievances, and miscommunications waste enormous amounts of time and energy. There is also a bottom-line cost in lost productivity, possible legal actions, and negative market reputation. This is especially true in fast-paced, highly driven, and politically competitive environments where stress can lead to conflict. Although unintentional, the impact on the business bottom line can be as much as a 30% decrease in profits and a 50% drop in goal attainment success. Based on Patrick’s Lencioni’s book, this module will equip you with the ability to grow, develop and lead your people to achieve goals that only a highly functioning team can accomplish, results that may seem highly unlikely or even impossible to those unskilled in unleashing the power of teams.
