THE FIVE DYSFUNCTIONS OF A TEAM
In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni offers an inspiring leadership fable. Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech’s CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company.
Will she succeed ? Lencioni’s utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight. Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team.
THE IDEAL TEAM PLAYER
In the Ideal Team Player, Lencioni tells the story of Jeff Shanley, a leader desperate to save his uncle’s company by restoring its cultural commitment to teamwork. Jeff must crack the code on the virtues that real team players possess, and then build a culture of hiring and development around those virtues. Beyond the fable, Lencioni presents a practical framework and actionable tools for identifying, hiring, and developing ideal team players. Whether you’re a leader trying to create a culture around teamwork, a staffing professional looking to hire real team players, or a team player wanting to improve yourself, this book will prove to be as useful as it is compelling.
The Five Behaviors program is designed exclusively for intact teams and work groups. Before making your decision on the program, consider the question: Is the team really a team ? A team is a relatively small number of people who meet on a regular basis and are collectively responsible for results. Team members share common goals as well as the rewards and responsibilities for achieving them. Not every group is a team !
Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team: How to use it
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is the result of the partnership between Wiley Workplace Learning Solutions and best-selling author Patrick Lencioni. Together they have created a team development programme with a simple goal: to improve team effectiveness and productivity. How ? Through the understanding and application of Five Behaviors™: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results.
BUILDING THE FOUNDATION OF A COHESIVE TEAM
Trust lies at the heart of a functioning cohesive team and can only happen when team members are willing to be completely vulnerable with one another.
This includes saying things like “I’m sorry” or “Your idea was better than mine.” A personality assessment can help people gain insight on their peers. It also helps to develop empathy. These two qualities allow a team to build trust.
ENGAGING IN HEALTHY CONFLICT
Conflict is naturally uncomfortable, but productive conflict focused on concepts and ideas is essential for any great team to grow.
When teams have a foundation of vulnerability-based trust, conflict simply becomes an attempt to find the best possible solution in the shortest period of time.
BUYING IN ON DECISIONS
Team commitment is about clarity around decisions, not consensus.
With commitment, teams move forward with complete buy-in from every team member – including those who may initially disagree.
HOLDING TEAM MEMBERS ACCOUNTABLE
It’s easy to avoid difficult conversations, but calling out peers on performance or behaviors that might hurt the team is essential to productivity.
By “entering the danger zone” with one another, team members feel trusted, respected, and responsible for getting things done right.
FOCUSING ON COLLECTIVE RESULTS
One of the greatest challenges to team success is the inattention to results.
Great teams ensure all members, regardless of their individual responsibilities and areas of expertise, are doing their best to help accomplish team goals.
