Team dysfunctions end up costing organisations incredible amounts of wasted time, energy and resources. While these costs are often difficult to quantify, the costs of missed opportunity, missed collaboration, reduced employee morale and unnecessary turnover are staggering.
This two-day workshop for teams is designed to address the common challenges that can hinder the effectiveness of the team, and is based on the simple and practical model described by Patrick Lencioni in his bestselling book ‘Overcoming the Five Dysfunctions of a Team’.
Through engaging team challenges, you will explore each of the five main barriers to team performance:
- Absence of trust
- Fear of conflict
- Lack of commitment
- Avoidance of accountability
- Inattention to results
Building a healthy and cohesive team (one that is fun to be a part of) takes commitment, energy and a deliberate and intentional approach. This workshop provides an excellent framework for organisations wanting to embed a healthy workplace culture into their business operations.
As pre-work, you will be required to complete a self-assessment which will be used during the workshop.
