2016 Focus on Leadership Teams: Increase Trust + Effectiveness

Focus on Leadership Teams: Increase Trust + Effectiveness
December 15 and 16, 2016
The Iris Network and Clarion Hotel, Portland
Presenter: Kathryn Hunt, Managing Director and Senior Consultant at Starboard Leadership Consulting

Strong leadership teams set the tone for how all other employees and volunteers work together. They can foster a culture in which it is safe to ask questions, share ideas, take risks and offer feedback. When teams have the courage and discipline to address challenges and work to overcome them they make better decisions and accomplish more in less time with fewer resources. High-performing, cohesive teams are at an advantage to successfully tackle bold initiatives, navigate change and increase mission impact.

This one-day intensive workshop provides an introduction to The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive TeamTM model of team performance, which is based on Pat Lencioni’s best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

Participants will:

  • Complete an assessment to gauge how their team performs relative to the five behaviors
  • Identify strengths to build upon and areas for improvement
  • Understand the causes of dysfunctions and the keys to overcoming them
  • Gain practical strategies for improving team communication and decision-making
  • Develop an action plan to strengthen their team

Who Should Attend

Senior leaders and leadership teams responsible for advancing strategic priorities and increasing the effectiveness of their organizations

Note: Teams of 3-6 are strongly encouraged for maximum benefit; however, this training is appropriate for pairs and individuals as well.
