While many teams focus on how “smart” they are, high-performing teams prioritize how “healthy” they are. Leveraging Patrick Lencioni’s 5 Dysfunctions of a Team Model, we’ll examine the common ingredients all healthy teams share –and identify practical strategies to improve the health of your team.
Trust: The fear of being vulnerable prevents team members from building trust with each other.
Conflict: The desire to preserve artificial harmony stifles productive ideological conflict within the team.
Commitment: The lack of clarity and/or buy-in prevents team members from making decisions they stick to.
Accountability: The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding each other accountable for their behaviors and performance.
Results: The pursuit of individual goals and personal status erodes the team’s focus on collective success.
