Working effectively as part of a team is undeniably important for producing quality work, maintaining workplace morale, and employee retention. Sometimes, however, things get in the way; we find that strong personalities or institutional inertia can be involved in creating an atmosphere more comprised of stress-induced communication as opposed to open and trusting communication at work.  

Patrick Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a Team has been an important and influential book for many people, working in all kinds of organizations. Working together as part of a team is the single most untapped resource for businesses and can lead to measurably greater results when dysfunctions are addressed.

It comes down to this: Professionals will be more effective in teams when they can successfully identify these five dysfunctions, then influence their teams in ways that will instead lead them toward the five behaviors of a cohesive team. The five behaviors we discuss will help them become a more cohesive, efficient, and effective team.

In this session, we will explore the good and bad in all five areas:

Learning Objectives/Agenda: 

·          Learn to identify the 5 dysfunctions by specific behavior, using the 5-point model (this is beyond abstract concept).

·          Put into action some tools to turn those dysfunctions into positive behaviors.

·          Participants will receive activities which they can take back with them to use in their teams to move forward in all 5 areas

·          Participants will be able to identify the 3 qualities of the ideal team player, with behaviors to watch for and address, and ways to incorporate the right questions into the hiring process

·          Participants will receive a free Everything DiSC Management Profile assessment, emailed to them (optionally) after the session.

This event has been approved for 2 HR General Credits.
