A healthy team is a team that thrives and manages to help the organization prosper. We can’t expect to work on great teams when we rely on our own strength to fix internal issues. When a team isn’t healthy and its members remain closed off emotionally and silent about issues, then dysfunction begins to grow. However, the five dysfunctions discussed in the course can be overcome by team effort and commitment. This week, make an effort to think through the ways you can be the change your team needs in this season.
