Event description


Join Business Volunteers for the fourth Civic Leadership Workshop of 2019 in a series exploring Patrick Lencioni's The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

The root causes of politics and dysfunction often plaguing the success of teams in the work environment are both identifiable and curable behaviors. The five dysfunctions he identities (absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and inattention to results) interrelate and cause major issues for teams.

The 2019 Civic Leadership Workshop Series focuses on how individuals can influence their team toward overcoming these dysfunctions and becoming a cohesive team. Building on one another, the workshops provide insight into the high levels of courage and discipline necessary for successfully making a team functional and cohesive.

Workshop 4: Leader is Coach

Leaders who “show-up” more effectively, have greater influence with those around them, and have a more significant cascading leadership impact if they always harness, promote, and diffuse a coaching mindset. Especially when leading a team, the “leader is coach” phrase conveys a more permanent and dedicated mindset and approach to leading others. Bottom line, you cannot lead effectively without coaching and you cannot coach effectively without leading.

In this workshop, participants learn how to focus conversations on a team member’s motivations, interests, and opportunities to promote engagement in their career and within the company. They identify strategies to guide others through complex problem-solving situations, focusing on promoting collaborative and open conversations to overcome barriers. Participants also learn how to provide structured feedback to support development and performance by influencing and supporting team members to own and manage their performance and actions.
