It only takes one or two members of your executive team who are not focused on the right things to significantly impact the productivity and effectiveness of the entire group. If we consider Patrick Lencioni’s book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, we see that there are five key areas that could cause a team to be dysfunctional or lack proper focus:
- Lack of trust
- Lack of commitment
- Fear of conflict
- Lack of accountability
- Inattention to results
Addressing one or more of these dysfunctions is not a quick fix. Despite the fun of a two-day ropes course for team building, the root issues that lead to these dysfunctions will require time and a clear process to properly fix. And that’s where a business coach can help.
Through team assessments, proven methodologies and processes, as well as coaching expertise and experience, a business coach can help you and your team ask the right questions and provide expert guidance and resources to correct any dysfunctions you may have so you can become a high performing, functional team.As a certified executive business coach, I can provide a clear roadmap and expert guidance to help your business succeed.
