Okay, this could certainly be a broader epistemologic question, but in this case I’m thinking more specifically about teams in health care. I love the fact that my clinical work in a highly interdependent specialty has allowed me to see some incredibly high-functioning teams AND some incredibly dysfunctional teams (I prefer being part of the former). Last summer I was asked to give a talk on breakdown within the healthcare team and chose to focus on the unique features of our teams with a strong “lean” on Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a Team (if you haven’t read it, READ IT!).
I could summarize some of the talk, or give you chunks of it here in the blog over time, but I think I would prefer to just share it with you in its PPT format. While you’ll miss out on my commentary about some of the items this way, it’s got plenty of resources and ideas that I hope will be valuable for you.
