Synopses & Reviews
Think back to a time when you experienced the satisfaction of being part of a world-class team. Whether on a sports field or in a corporate setting, that feeling of unstoppable momentum is both satisfying and energizing. It's the way teams should work, after all.
Unfortunately, the magic that accompanies a well-functioning team is often derailed by the natural human behaviors of team members and their leaders. The good news is that the dysfunctions that often trip up a well-intentioned team can be avoided.
Based on Patrick Lencioni's extraordinarily successful leadership fable The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this Participant Workbook outlines Lencioni's powerful model and the actionable steps that can be used to overcome five common problems that may prevent your team from performing at its best:
- Absence of Trust
- Fear of Conflict
- Lack of Commitment
- Avoidance of Accountability
- Inattention to Results
As you work through the pages of this workbook with your team, you will find your team taking its first steps toward greater cohesiveness and productivity. The unique, field-tested exercises and process will set you and your team members on a path to becoming that world-class team that you know can be so remarkable.
