Dysfunction in the Workplace

Dan McNeill accepts award from TTI   The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

In Patrick Lencioni's best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, he tells a tale of a firm's executive team struggling with utter dysfunction. Ineffective communication, multiple egos, fear, office politics and judgmental attitudes were all contributing to the absence of dynamics and poor performance.

Does this sound familiar to you?
Have you experienced a dysfunctional team in your career?

If yes, you are not alone. Most everyone has either been a part of, observed or even faced the challenge of leading a dysfunctional team like the one Lencioni describes. In fact, he says, "Teams, because they are made up of imperfect human beings, are inherently dysfunctional."

Lencioni's interrelated model of team dysfunction outlines five areas that prevent success in every team:

  • Absence of trust
  • Fear of conflict
  • Lack of commitment
  • Avoidance of accountability
  • Inattention to results

There is hope for all of us experiencing a dysfunctional team. As Lencioni states, "In fact, team building is both possible and remarkably simple. But is also painful." The McNeill Group strongly believes in two fundamental team building basics that help teams overcome each of these dysfunctions: awareness and communication.

Executive Insight

The First World Congress on Positive Psychology held a conference highlighting scientific evidence demonstrating how a positive perspective, solution-based focus (rather than a problem-oriented approach) supports health, well-being, and fulfillment.

Coaching by The McNeill Group is based on this positive, solution-based perspective, among other practices unique to TMG coaches, that work to keep an executive at the top of their game, or work with them to get to the top of their game.
