Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Strategies for Superior Group Process

Presented by Patrick Gallagher, Corporate Adventures

The Corporate Adventures Five Dysfunctions of a Team workshop will define teamwork into a set learnable team behaviors. These behaviors are taught though a sequence of five skill workshops. These workshops benchmark your teams performance, teach specific "research-based" best practices, and guides your team towards specific behaviors. The specific behaviors are outlined in Patrick Lencionis book Overcoming the the Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A field guide. The Five Dysfunctions of a Team training was developed by Patrick Lencioni and outlined in Patrick Lencionis Five Dysfunctions of a Team Facilitators guide.
