Building Teams & Overcoming the Five Dysfunctions

Many organizations use the term “team” to classify workgroups with high levels of cooperation and cohesiveness. Yet too often, “team” is more of an aspiration than a reality, and the path to becoming a team is uncertain. A team is “a small number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose, performance goals, and approach for which they hold themselves fully and jointly accountable for the team’s results.” (Katzenbach and Smith). This workshop offers insights into the distinct needs at each stage of a work group’s development, practical tools for aligning team goals, roles, and responsibilities, and introduces strategies that move a group to high levels of performance and goal attainment, plus an opportunity for intact work groups to improve team performance in “real time” – to learn about team development as they address the specific challenges and opportunities unique to their members and purpose.
