"Based on my work with executive teams over the past ten years, I've come to the conclusion that teamwork remains the single most untapped competitive advantage for any organization. Whether you work in a corporation, a non-profit, or a small, entrepreneurial venture, finding a way to minimize politics and confusion within your organization can lead to extraordinary improvement in morale, productivity, and results."
Based on the best-selling leadership fable The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, the new edition of this easy-to-use workbook provides participants with an opportunity to explore the pitfalls that are side-tracking their team. Beginning with a 38-item team assessment, the workbook guides participants through The Five Dysfunctions of a Team:
Absence of Trust
Fear of Conflict
Lack of Commitment
Avoidance of Accountability
Inattention to Results
In addition to the standard workshop for teams, this expanded second edition featues a workshop targeted toward managers and team-leaders. Perfect for off-sites and retreats or even a series of team development meetings, this workbook is an excellent team development tool.
