Dealing With the Elephant in the Room: Teamwork, Leadership and the Currency of Truth

Most companies deal in the currency of half truths, or truths that make us look good, or put us in a strong position, but because we keep others from seeing the reality of the situation work gets delayed, not done or done poorly. Great leaders and organizations that deal in an honest, truthful, and trusting manner outperform their competitors. Learn how to make this the culture of your team.

Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Great success stories, like those told during the championship years of the San Francisco 49ers, are more often than not the result of something all too elusive and rare-teamwork. Based on the model found in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, by strategic partner Patrick Lencioni, Pat Richie brings real teamwork to life with behind the scenes stories from his years with Superbowl champion San Francisco 49ers. In this talk, Pat identifies the five root causes for team dysfunction and provides solutions to help any team succeed.
