Event Title

Mini 11: Practical Approaches to Addressing the Five Dysfunctions of a Team *

Presenter Information

Dr. George Giokaris, Adjunct Doctoral Professor of Education, Brandman University

Location

Rancho Las Palmas

Description

The central question of the workshop is how can you, as both a team leader and team member, enhance the commitment and capacity among all team members to attain a common goal? This engaging and interactive workshop will address the compelling responsibility of all leaders to build high performing teams, by using The Five Dysfunctions of a Team (Patrick Lencioni, 2002) as our guide. All effective leaders must learn about and continuously employ practical, focused, personalized, and proven approaches to building high performing teams. Although the world of work and schools relies more and more on effective teamwork, it often lacks a solid grasp of what makes a teamwork. Using a productive mindset, each of the Five Dysfunctions will be reviewed in order to apply your prior learning and new insights from this workshop to improve the performance of your team and all team members. Each participant will share personal and professional insights and successful experiences in order to offer advice and suggestions to colleagues participating in the workshop.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Investigate “below the surface” to better understand how each dysfunction impacts a team’s dynamics and effectiveness
  • Assess the current status of one of your current teams to determine your team’s susceptibility to one or more of the five dysfunctions
  • Determine why, where, when and with whom to apply practical and realistic steps to improve trust, commitment, and accountability; take advantage of conflict, and focus on results.
