Understanding the five dysfunctions that a team can face allows us to be in better control when we face similar situations and helps us apply the right strategy to solve problems.
P.S. - Gain invaluable insight on what could make or break a team. What you thought you knew about trust and conflict may be proven wrong with this compelling fable.
