Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni, trust is the foundation of any effective team. Without trust an organization can and will fall into disarray. When this happens there are a number of distinct symptoms that appear as distress signals.

These signals include team members that:

  • Hold grudges
  • Are unwilling to help outside their area of responsibility
  • Avoid controversial topics
  • Hide mistakes
  • Hold uneventful and unproductive meetings
  • Use personal attacks as a defence mechanism
  • Are quick to resent one another

This will lead to the following effects:

  • Ambiguity about the direction of the team and the priorities
  • Issues that are never resolved and resurface again and again
  • Second guessing about solutions or potential strategies
  • Excess analysis of issues and opportunities
  • Missed deadlines
  • Poor results
  • A weak competitive posture
