THE POWER OF A HIGH FUNCTIONING TEAM
In Patrick Lencioni’s powerful work on what makes a functional – vs. dysfunction team – he starts with the premise that trust is foundational for a great, high-performing team. This trust, Lencioni posits, comes from investment in and creation of deeper relationships of trust. This means a more vulnerable kind of trusting where team members can share fears, failures and doubt with their colleague.
Using Myers Briggs Type theory as the foundation, Debbie works with teams to help individuals better understand themselves and their colleagues so that they can work more effectively with one another. Every hands-on, participative training session that Debbie facilitates is customized for each specific company and team. Using this shared language of MBTI type, team members recognize and understand their preferences – and the preferences of their colleagues, which set a firm foundation for creating and maintaining a high functioning team.
