Team Dynamics: Team Dysfunction

According to author of the best-selling The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni claims:

"Like it or not, all teams are potentially dysfunctional. This is inevitable because they are made up of fallible, imperfect human beings. From the basketball court to the executive suite, politics and confusion are more the rule than the exception.

However, facing dysfunction and focusing on teamwork is particularly critical at the top of an organization because the executive team sets the tone for how all employees work with one another."

Team Coaching: Organisational Transformation

Often leadership teams of large companies turn to team coaching when they know they need to lead a major organisational transformation.

In this Case Study on Finnair on Finnair, Dave Jarrett explores how team coaching has several distinct but interconnected areas:

  • the team jointly clarifies, develops and owns the transformation
  • the need to operate as a team to lead this change
  • the need to live and role model the values and behaviours 
  • Builds the trust and cohesion necessary to deal with any turbulence 
  • Increases their collective capacity to communicate the transformation process, engage staff and other critical stakeholders, and win commitment to the change

Leadership: Driving Performance

Now, more than ever, leadership is evolving. There are new criteria to define success in a leadership role at different levels of an organisation. Navigating through this, it is important to understand the nature of work in terms of behaviors that drive success at each level.

The SuccessFinder team spent over two years researching and
validating their findings  across three corporate levels of leadership:

• First/Intermediate-Level Management
• Senior-Level Management
• C-Level Management

Psychology of Collaboration

The way your team communicates greatly affects the performance of your employees and your organisation.
However, less commonly understood is the psychology behind how we collaborate.

The psychology behind workplace collaboration can be tied back to the day-to-day interactions that take place at virtually any organisation. How your employees interpret the work they do
and the way they collaborate with others ultimately determines their success, investment and engagement in the company. And when your employees are engaged, your company wins.

Explore how you can enhance collaboration in your work environment with this Microsoft article on The Psychology of Workplace Collaboration.
