Only Responsible Leaders Can Collaborate in a High-Functioning Team

Christopher Avery's responsibility process describes the phases we go through on our way to taking real responsibility.

Patrick Lencioni describes the five dysfunctions of team....and by extension the five behaviors of a high-functioning, collaborative team.

In this highly interactive workshop, we will explore together what happens we are a stuck in something less than a place of responsibility, and what impact that has on our ability to collaborate effectively on a team.

Then we will explore how working our way to a place of responsibility also helps us create and contribute to a healthy team, and sets us up to collaborate to create great things.

Attendees will walk away with a set of working agreements--and a process you can run with your team--that can help you and your team reach performance and responsibility.

      Great read I loved the aspect of ‘‘equality in distribution of conversational turn-taking.’’ ;0)

    Thank you, Ronica, Christine, and Agile Denver. It was a great presentation filled examples of why we need to understand (and redirect) the Process of Responsibility. Maybe most important of all, you showed how we can't hope to navigate the five dysfunctions without vulnerability.

    Good presentation, I really liked the focus on achieving genuine, vulnerable trust within teams. Too often in tech, we forget our social cognizance.
