The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team

The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team.

Leadership & high-performing teams.

The smallest factors can cause team work to breakdown, and studies have repeatedly shown that one of the primary factors for failing teamwork is due to a lack of personal engagement. Gallup's most recent „State of the Global Workplace“ reveals that only 15 per cent of employees are engaged in the workplace. Leaders need to learn to identify the five dysfunctions of a team so that their team has the means to address them and not allow them to bring production, processes and the organization to a standstill.

The workshop "The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team" based on Patrick Lencioni's methodology, takes a team through a series of powerful exercises that help team members develop in each of the five key areas: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results. It is a highly practical process that provides teams with information and strategies they can use immediately and apply on an ongoing basis. Unlike traditional workshop formats, this workshop focuses on providing tools to help the team improve in each of the five team fundamental aspects of teamwork. Moreover, team members do not just learn the theory, but actually take the first steps on their journey to creating a highly functioning team.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team workshop is highly interactive and features a variety of activities that engage team members in the process of assessing their strengths and areas for improvement and showing them how to overcome each of the five dysfunctions.
