5 Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni

I have been reviewing my leadership file and wanted to add this reminder to the conversation of team development. it has been a while since I reviewed this timeless work by Patrick Lencioni.

Core Thought:
Teams that lack trust are incapable of engaging in unfiltered and
passionate debate of ideas. Instead resorting to veiled discussion and
guarded comments.

5 Functions of a Successful Team

1. They trust one another
2. They engage in unfiltered conflict around ideas.*
3. They commit to discussions and plans of action.
4. They hold one another accountable for delivering against those plans.
5. They focus on the achievement of collecting results.

(* Acknowledge/understand conflict is NOT bad)
