5 Characteristics of a Good Team...and How to Get There!

5 Characteristics of a Good Team...and How to Get There!

Today's episode is part 2 of our focus on teams.  As we said last week:

Good teams are essential for effective nonprofit work.  And it is the leader's responsibility to lead the team to effectiveness.

In this episode,   Tim and Nathan look at 5 Characteristics of a good team.  Referencing Patrick Lenceoni's book, The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team,  and sharing from their own experience, the guys provide actions steps to take to move the team in a positive direction.

The episode ends with a challenge to take these 3 actions:

  • Take time to assess your team and how you are leading it.
  • Choose one of the areas talked about to begin to work on and take a few small action steps.
  • Consider purchasing the 5 Dysfunctions of a Team (linked above).

Note:  Tim and Nathan do not receive any benefit from the books purchase but just highly recommend the book.
