"5 Dysfunctions of a Team" Workshop Series- July 2018

Date: Tuesday, July 10, 2018
Time: 8:00am to 12:00pm
Location: Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce Board Room 612 Garrison

As a "perk" of membership, we are offering a variety of educational opportunities for your business and/or profession throughout the year.   It is our hope that these "Chamber Perk" sessions will help you to grow your business, improve cohesiveness within your teams and ultimately position you and your team for much success!   There will also be ample time to network and meet other like-minded individuals in our community!  

The "Five Dysfunctions of a Team" by Patrick Lencioni, outlines the root causes of politics and dysfunction on the teams where you work, and the key to overcome them.  Counter to conventional wisdom, the causes of dysfunction are both identifiable and curable. 

Please join us on Wednesday, July 10 and Wednesday July 17 for a 2- session workshop which will provide an in-depth look at dysfunctions within teams and how to best overcome those challenges.  "5 Dysfunctions of a Team" is a book that has been a practical tool in getting teams aligned, breaking down the "silos" within companies/organizations and getting the teams within your organization to move in the same direction.    This workshop will be led by Phillip McClure.  Many may be familiar with Phillip as a class facilitator in our Leadership Fort Smith program which is in its 31st year.  Phillip is a dynamic facilitator and has worked with a number of companies and organizations in our region.

What will you gain from this workshop series?  

*  Team members will not only reach a common understanding of what it means to be a team, because the workshop is so practical, will also make substantial progress toward becoming a more cohesive team. 
 
*  Team leaders will improve the cohesion and functioning of their teams by applying the Five Dysfunctions Model.
 
*  Improving teamwork reduces the stress and dissatisfaction of the people in your organization, which has a profound impact on the lives of their friends and family members as well.
