The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Author Patrick Lencioni illustrates the fact that teamwork remains the one sustainable competitive advantage that has been largely untapped. The reason for this is because it is hard to measure – it impacts the outcome of an organization/department in such a comprehensive and invasive way that it is virtually impossible to isolate a single variable. It is also very hard to achieve because it requires levels of courage, discipline and emotional energy that even the most driven teams don’t always possess. However, the power of teams cannot be denied. When people come together and set aside their individual needs for the good of the whole, they can accomplish great things. By eliminating the politics and confusion that plague most organizations, they get more done in less time and less cost. That is worth a lot of effort.

Deliver the same team building lessons that Patrick Lencioni himself has delivered to hundreds of teams in a wide range of organizations.
