I saw this statement at the bottom of my Leadership Wired newsletter. Great quote.
Been thinking a lot about teamwork recently. Even took the staff pastors through a book called The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni. I LOVED the book. I'd recommend it to anyone on a team (corporate, ministry, marriage, etc.).
The book is a easy-to-read story of a fictional team which illustrates some of a major dysfunctions which hamper true teamwork & how to overcome them. It's a quick & insightful. Even gives you a test to evaluate your level of teamwork.
Get the book & take your team(s) through it. The 5 dysfunctions (starting with relational issues, and moving to productivity issues) are:
- Lack of Trust
- Fear of Conflict
- Lack of Commitment
- Avoidance of Accountability
- Inattention to Results
Anyone else out there read it?
