TeleSeminar: Five Dysfunctions of a Team - - Teambuilding games that bring this must read material to life

Thursday, September 28 · Comments (0) See comments

NY Times best selling author poo-poos teambuilding games! 

When I first heard this I said "How could that be?!"

If you’re reading this post then you know that (intuitively or consciously) teambuilding games are the fastest, easiest way to help people “get it” at a deeper level.

So what is the deal?

Perhaps Lencioni has never experienced the effective INTEGRATION of an experiential learning exercise (teambuilding game) into a team development workshop.  After all, many inexperienced trainers will lead teambuilding games in a disjointed and ultimately ineffective way. 

This TeleSeminar will help you teach the principles of the Five Dysfunctions book in a fun and engaging way using the power of teambuilding exercises.    

I love Lencioni’s book because the five principles he offers up provide a wonderful framework upon which to build a powerful teambuilding program. In case you haven't read this book, the five principles are:

  1. Absense of Trust
  2. Fear of Conflict
  3. Lack of Commitment
  4. Avoidance of Accountability
  5. Inattention to Results

My personal favorite from this list is Absense of Trust.  Can you guess why?

Which one strikes a chord with you?  Which one is the pivotal dysfunction in your mind?

I have advised many a trainer to use the book as the framework for their team training event.

But Lencioni in all his wisdom offers no experiential learning activities to drive home the lessons of his book.

On Wednesday October 4, 2006 I’m leading a live TeleSeminar where I’ll share 5 teambuilding activities that will help you bring the material in this fantastic book alive.

You should still participate in this call even if you’re not already familiar with the book.  To make sure everyone is on the same page, I'll be giving you a personal interpretation of the 5 Dysfunctions model at the beginning ofthe call.

This is your chance to learn a simple way of combining great content from the book and great activities to make the training memorable and fun.

Wouldn't you love to overcome the five biggest blocks to great teams before they come up?
