Week 5 Discussion for Leadership
Reflecting on your own professional experience, as well as what you have been reading from Lencioni, describe a time when there was damaging conflict on a team of which you were a member. This conflict may have been suppressed, not directly addressed, or it may have surfaced in a way that was destructive to team effectiveness.
Applying material from this week, the Internet, and/or Library research, explain how the conflict could have been better managed by the team and team leader. Consider how your own conflict management style, as revealed by the TKI Assessment, played a part in this situation.
