Team Dynamics: The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Many teams aren’t really teams. Each member manages his or her functional area, but fails to commit to the organizational goals that determine everyone’s success. The unit team leader is not the only individual responsible for seeing the larger picture. Everyone has to work together to produce results.

Based on Patrick Lencioni’s book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this training workshop will allow participants to:

· Engage in practical activities that build trust between team members
· Learn why team accountability is difficult
· Identify the four common factors that distract team members from focusing on team goals
