OVERCOMING THE 5 DYSFUNCTIONS OF A TEAM
Like it or not, all teams are potentially dysfunctional. The good news is that the causes of team dysfunction are both identifiable and curable, with courage and discipline.
Is Your Team Dysfunctional?
To better understand the level of dysfunction you are facing, ask yourself these simple questions:
- Do team members openly and readily disclose their opinions?
- Are team meetings compelling and productive?
- Does the team come to decisions quickly and avoid getting bogged down by consensus?
- Do team members confront one another about their shortcomings?
- Do team members sacrifice their own interests for the good of the team?
Although no team is perfect, if you answered “no” to more than one of these questions, your team may need some work.
