About the Model
Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a Team is a model derived from Patrick Lencioni’s book of the same name. It suggests a set of five core teambuilding principles and contrasts how cohesive teams work compared to dysfunctional ones.
Inattention to RESULTS – The pursuit of individual goals and personal status erodes the focus on collective success.
Avoidance of ACCOUNTABILITY – The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding each other accountable.
Lack of COMMITMENT – The lack of clarity or buy-in prevents team members from making decisions they will stick to.
Fear of CONFLICT – The desire to preserve artificial harmony stifles the occurrence of productive ideological conflict.
Absence of TRUST – The fear of being vulnerable with team members prevents the building of trust within the team.
