Are you getting the most out of your team?

This practical session guides you through the Five Dysfunctions of a Team model by Patrick Lencioni, outlining the five key fundamentals to teamwork. Practical strategies will be provided on how to build a team environment of trust, positive conflict that allows for robust debate, commitment and accountability, with a strong focus on team results.

If you would like to know how to effectively lead a highly functioning team, this workshop is for you!


It is so easy to jump into problem-solving model.  In addition, leaders often spend 80% of their time focusing on people issues and only 20% on their good performers.  Leaders are continually asked to do more with less resources, so discretionary effort is essential to achieving results. Learn practical tools and tactics to help you resist ‘telling’: to engage, enable and empower your staff through effective coaching. This masterclass provides practical tools and tactics to ensure the focus remains on engaging, enabling and empowering staff through effective coaching, rather than rushing to problem solving and advising. Participants leave the session with an individual Action Plan.
