Webinar Details

Building a collaborative, cohesive culture is one of the single most important responsibilities of a manager. A positive work culture produces beneficial employee and work outcomes, such as improved teamwork, increased productivity, increased creativity, and increased loyalty. It is also important for attracting and retaining highly skilled staff. Despite these benefits, every team experiences some degree of dysfunction, from hiding resources to ongoing turf wars to backbiting and backstabbing to gossiping and rumours. Every dysfunction has a direct impact on a team’s performance and produces unhealthy conflict, reduces productivity, and takes the focus off results and high performance.

Almost every manager has encountered dysfunctional team dynamics at some point in their career. When team members frequently argue, or battle through passive-aggression, or condescending insults it affects everyone, including the manager. Allowing dysfunction to fester will only cultivate an unfavourable employee experience and can threaten to tear apart entire teams. The good news is that there are strategies that managers can employ to fix the dysfunction in teams.
