Good Team Members Get Hired

  • Aug 17, 2010 · 10:00 AM
  • Valencia Gardens

Successful job applicants are good team members. Do you fit your chosen employer's team? Learn at this program what the elements of a good team are and how to be a good team member. You can prove that you are a team member and understand the value of teams if you know and practice the fundamentals of good teamwork. Our workshop will focus on Patrick Lencioni’s book
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. Principal Consultants John Rodriguez and Glenn Lyday from The Table Group - Patrick Lencioni's famous professional speakers’ group - will guide you though an overview of the model, make suggestions for overcoming the challenges of developing strong performing teams, and discuss how to portray yourself as a potentially good fit for a team.
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
Why do some teams consistently succeed and others either struggle to deliver the same results – or fail and miss the desired outcomes? The Table Group believes real teamwork is the last great competitive advantage for any organization. In addition to your skill set and experience, do you also work well with teams? If the answer is yes, how do you clearly state this in a discussion with a potential company? The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is the flagship book for Patrick Lencioni and The Table Group. Having sold more than one million copies, Pat's groundbreaking theory on teams focuses on collective team behaviors that lead to success. John and Glenn will host our event, explain the model, provide examples from field work to help show what to avoid and what to strive for, and answer your questions. This model, which provides a framework for teams, can be a valuable discussion point for you to show you are a good hire for intact teams, project teams, matrix-organizations…whenever a group of people must work together to deliver results.
Our Facilitators: John Rodriguez and Glenn Lyday That’s right, two Principal Consultants from The Table Group will present! They work with clients to help implement the ideas in Pat’s books through consulting, key note speaking, and training. John helped co-found the company in 1997 and also helped Pat write
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, which was released in 2002. Both John and Glenn have worked with leaders in many industries and teams of all sizes, helping them overcome these challenges and improve their ability to deliver desired results. John and Glenn's program will begin at 10:00 a.m.
sharp and will run 1.5 hours. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m. to allow for open networking, which will also take place after the group sessions.

    The speakers were very dynamic. They gave ideas of good questions to ask during the interview process to understand the culture of the company.

    I loved this Meetup. Glenn and John were wonderful facilitators. Their knowledge and enthusiasm were so contagious that I immediately went out and used the information with my client. More from them, please!

    Presenters were great - open and engaging, and the subject resonated with a number of members in the group. I still struggle with how to discern (what questions to ask, and how to ask them in a way not to alienate and to get a useful answer) whether an organization is a good/healthy team environment. I guess I'll have to rely on intuition.

    John and Glenn summed up their excellent presentation from The Table Group with “teamwork is a strategic choice.” While employers invest 98% of their time in building a smart company, the greatest area for competitive advantage comes from building a healthy company. Good teams run healthy companies, and those good teams require good teamwork. John and Glenn clearly explained why I should chose to work with a good team, how I can be a good team player, and what I can do when a team member or leader damages the team. John and Glenn covered a lot of material, provided handouts with detailed information, and put the responsibility on me to master the concepts. Thank you, John and Glenn, and thank you to The Table Group for responding to our request for a speaker!

    The speakers were lively and engaging. I liked their interactiveness, responding to questions and comments as they came up. It was also nice to be able to sit at tables; we had somewhere easy to write notes, and it lent to more interaction among table " partners." Learning about the "smart" and "healthy" aspects of the model provided an "aha" about why I get frustrated at some organizations. I'm hugely into the "healthy" side, and run across managers who think "that stuff" is pure fluff. And "a waste of time." Today's presentation gave me some ideas on how to suss out a hiring manager's take in an interview. And, HUGE kudos to George Main for working so hard to bring us these presentors!!!!

    BRAVO, Karen
