Based on the groundbreaking work of Patrick Lencioni this course explores how even the best teams can fall into chaos and struggle to sustain their performance goals. We will define the concept of “vulnerability-based trust,” and look at why this is key to building and maintaining high performing teams. Through lecture, discussion, and interactive exercises we will discover where your team(s) sit on the performance continuum and where improvements can be made. This course offers specific, practical guidance for overcoming the five dysfunctions, using tools, exercises, assessments, and real-world examples. We will examine questions that all team should be asking themselves: Are we really a team? How are we currently performing? Are we prepared to invest the time and energy required to be a great team?
