Fact: Team dysfunctions never sort themselves out.

About The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Workshop and Training Program
The last thing you and your team need is another experiential training activity where everyone comes together and has a shared experience, learns something new, and hopes get raised– only for old habits to return within a few days or weeks.
This is where cynicism is born.
After almost 15 years of facilitating The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Workshop, we have learned a thing or two about the best practices essential to making this experience meaningful and sticky. A key ingredient to our “secret sauce” is our diagnostic stack coupled with experienced facilitators.
We fervently believe what gets measured gets improved. Accordingly, we begin by having team members complete Patrick Lencioni’s online Team Assessment Report (TAR) anonymously to identify precisely where your team can improve. We also use the powerful psychometric assessment, the TriMetrix® HD, to accurately measure each team member’s Behavioral Style and Driving Forces (Motivators). This robust assessment stack helps improve self and interpersonal awareness during and long after the workshop.
You can trust that your facilitator is an expert in The Five Dysfunctions of a team as well as the TriMetrix® HD.
We also situationally deploy leadership, Emotional Intelligence (EQ), and Culture Scan assessments to diagnose your team’s current state properly.
About The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Model
Patrick Lencioni’s The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Model is elegantly simple yet powerful. We believe The Five Dysfunctions of a Team to be a “universal truth.”
The “base” or “foundation” of Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a Team Model is Trust. Without Trust, it is difficult to impossible for Conflict to occur properly. Without proper Conflict, genuine Commitment is nearly impossible. A lack of Commitment translates into avoidance of Accountability. When Teams avoid Accountability, they will not fully achieve Results.
EACH DYSFUNCTION IS SHARED MORE FORMALLY FOLLOWING:
- Absence of Trust: Unwilling to be vulnerable within the group.
- Fear of Conflict: Seeking artificial harmony instead of constructive, passionate debate.
- Lack of Commitment: Pretending buy-in for group decisions leads to ambiguity throughout the team and organization.
- Avoidance of Accountability: Dodging responsibility to call peers and superiors on unproductive behavior, leading to low standards.
- Inattention to Results: The focus is on personal success, ambitions, status, and ego ahead of team success.
