It also delves into the significance of effective communication, vulnerability, and understanding individual working genius.

Pat also shares insights on team dynamics, leadership, and the impact of dysfunctional behaviors on organizational success.

  • Trust and vulnerability are essential for effective team communication and collaboration.
  • Conflict avoidance can hinder team progress and innovation. Constructive conflict is necessary for growth and improvement.
  • Understanding the six types of working genius can help individuals and teams leverage their strengths and work together more effectively. Trust is the foundation of effective teamwork, and without it, healthy conflict and commitment cannot thrive.
  • Healthy conflict is necessary for teams to address issues openly and make decisions that everyone can commit to.
  • Lack of commitment leads to passive agreement, which results in a lack of accountability and inattention to results.
  • Avoidance of accountability hinders team performance and requires peers to hold each other accountable for behaviors and commitments.
  • Inattention to results occurs when individuals prioritize their department's success over the collective success of the organization, leading to dysfunctional team dynamics.
