How to Interpret Lencioni's 5 Dysfunctions of a Team Social

If you’ve been following People Leaders a while, you’ll know we’re all about optimising your team’s performance and effectiveness. We like to explore ways in which we can help you, and we love hearing what leading-edge thinkers have to say. This week, we’re looking at the work of organisational health expert Patrick Lencioni and the ideas raised in his book ‘The Five Dysfunctions of a Team - A Leadership Fable’.

In this episode

  • The five basic dysfunctions that teams commonly struggle with
  • The causes of these dysfunctions e.g. confusion, misunderstanding, negative morale and can impact entire organisations
  • Lencioni believes teamwork starts with trust - and the way to build trust is to come from a place of vulnerability.
  • Fear of conflict
  • If you recognise these patterns within your team, it might come as a relief to know they’re universal and can be overcome. Remember, they’re all connected and the key is to start by building a strong foundation of trust.
