The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team Workshop
In this day and age, the value of a functional and successful team will make all the difference.
By PEDRO SOLÓRZANO
The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team workshop changes everything: Based on Patrick Lencioni’s book, “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”.
- Do your team members trust each other?
- Do they trust each other “based on vulnerability”, i.e. do they recognise that they are human?
- Does your team engage in productive discussions and crucial conversations to examine ideas?
- Do they know the difference between “productive” and “destructive” conflict?
- Does your team achieve commitment and alignment with your organisation’s goals?
- Does everyone have acceptance and clarity about what has been decided?
- Are your team members accountable to each other for their actions, behaviours and achievement of their objectives?
- Do individual behaviours get in the way of your team?
- Does your team pay enough attention to your results?
- Do they lack focus on your collective results due to external or internal distractions?
These questions and their answers uncover the things that could prevent your team from achieving all that it is set out to accomplish. Even the best leaders and managers recognise that there is room for improvement in their team dynamics.
Cultural Strategies can help bring a strengths-based approach and how to overcome the five dysfunctions by facilitating the 5 Dysfunctions of a Team Workshop and following it up so that it permeates the DNA of the team and your team reaches the level you desire.
Even the best leaders and managers recognise that there is room for improvement in their team dynamics.
I combine the workshop with a Team Assessment Report that analyses and deepens the behaviours of your team. Starting from the ground up, we establish trust between team members, resulting in a more collaborative and cohesive team that can achieve exceptional results for your organisation.
Your team will discover new ways to give each other feedback, manage conflict by fearlessly entering into the crucial conversations they tend to avoid, and overcome behaviours that may have unconsciously harmed your team,
This will allow the team to use all its strengths to engage each individual in better problem solving, brainstorming and decision making.
Through the 5 team dysfunctions workshop and team monitoring, your teams will begin to look for behaviours among team members that detract from collaboration and cohesion as a team.
Your team will become much more adept at addressing behaviours in a respectful and honest manner that will move the team forward and away from destructive behaviours.
As collaborative and helpful behaviours become normalised among team members, you will spend less time navigating behaviours and more time on problem solving, brainstorming processes and task accomplishment.
They will be able to prioritise their meetings in order to work on the most urgent issues/missions, with commitments from individuals and/or teams with the appropriate strengths and resources to achieve them.
You will be able to track important issues and the completion status of their associated tasks and resources.
Your team will be able to achieve their “missions” or goals within a specific timeframe, celebrate the team’s achievements and move on to the next objective.
In doing so, you will achieve the great feeling and added value of cohesive teams that work well together, focused on specific results, all as one and with determination and will continue to use their strengths to strengthen each other before, during and after the achievement of their thematic goals.
