Building a healthy leadership team

The primary obstacle for organisations when it comes to becoming healthy isn't what you'd expect. You'd think it would be culture at the root of the issue. Or a lack of vision. Or perhaps key strategic errors. Instead, the health of an organisation starts and ends with the health of its leadership team. 5 dysfunctions of a team helps to unpack this thought.

Lencioni explains that a leadership team without vulnerability can't be healthy. This dysfunction is the foundation of all other team dysfunction. When we think there's a culture, vision or strategic issue, it's often linked to an unhealthy leadership team that can't collectively implement a healthy culture, vision or strategy.

5 dysfunctions of a team starts with vulnerability and then builds to conflict, commitment, accountability and results. As mentioned above, vulnerability is the foundation.

If you want a healthy organisation, consider how your organisation's leadership team is currently functioning. 5 dysfunctions of a team is a framework for leaders to gain fresh perspective about their leadership team and, as a result, their organisation.
