A strong team = a strong organization! Read "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" by Patrick Lencioni to see what keeps teams from becoming strong. Next five Posts will highlight the "Five Dysfunctions".... stay tuned...
5 Dysfunctions of a team: #1 Dysfunction - Lack of trustIt is critical to create an environment where members of a team trust each other. Doing what you say you are going to do and respecting differing opinions are just two ways to start building trust. Trust is an essential element for strong teams!
5 Dysfunctions of a team: #2 Dysfunction - Fear of ConflictConstructive conflict is the passionate and unfiltered debate of ideas. Constructive conflict is important because it enables the team to come to a good solution more quickly.
#3 Dysfunction - Lack of commitment (Five Dysfunctions of a Team)Commitment is important because it drives accountability. If there is a deep commitment, team members will tend to hold each other accountable. Also, team members will tend not to dodge individual or team accountability.
#4 Dysfunction - Missing Accountability (Five Dysfunctions of a Team)In my opinion, this is the most important element for any organization. Healthy accountability will care for people and maximize results.
#5 Dysfunction - Inattention to results (Five Dysfunctions of a Team)Attention to results drives attainment of the team’s goals. The morale of the team members will tend to rise or fall with the results.
