Five Behaviors of an Effective Team is based on the best-selling book “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” by Patrick Lencioni. This fast moving webinar will provide clarity of the five behaviors that are critical to creating a cohesive and effective team. The behaviors include:
- Trusting team members with honest transparency. A trusting team is not guarded or territorial but instead openly displays strengths and weaknesses.
- Effective teams engage in healthy Conflict and open debate. Lack of conflict means limited options and lack of innovation whereas functional conflict assures that all important issues are openly discussed, allowing optimum solutions and decision making strategies.
- Commitment to decisions is assured when all members openly express their views and ideas are fully vetted. Commitment doesn’t mean consensus but teams that trust one another and engage in conflict are positioned to achieve the buy-in necessary for commitment and engagement.
- Highly cohesive teams hold one another Accountable. With clear commitment it is much easier to hold members accountable and the best of teams don’t rely on the leader to make it happen. Without accountability deadlines are not met and quality suffers.
- Great teams achieve great collective Results. Collective results mean outcomes that are in the best interest of the company and have no room for egos, silos, or prima donnas. This further improves team cohesion in the workplace.
- Identifying problems within the team dynamics
- How to focus on behaviors of successful teams or groups
- Creating the conversations with team members that improve performance and team cohesion in the workplace
- Defining accountability and effective team management skills
