Improvement within any given system will require a team approach.
There are several important elements to consider when supporting a team to work effectively together. The foundation of high performing teams are relationships based on trust and commitment. Patrick Lencioni identified five key behaviours, that if optimised, result in a team working effectively and efficiently together. Each of these behaviours is interrelated and a breakdown of just one behaviour can prevent a team from achieving its potential.
It can be helpful to look out for the flipside of each these behaviours when you are working with a team.
When any of these negative behaviours is present it will have a serious impact on the ability of the team to achieve lasting improvements.
