5 dysfunctions of a team

The 5 dysfunction of a team provides team guidance and advice. The  5 dysfunctions of a team has been designed to help you target and address specific dysfunctions in Teams:

  • Each of the Big Five personality traits is considered to drive a significant aspect of cognition (how we think) and behavior (how we act).
  • Each trait is completely distinct and independent of the other four traits; for instance, a highly Extraverted person is no more or less likely to be highly Conscientious as well.
  • For an individual, each of the Big Five personality traits is measured along a spectrum, so that one can be high, medium, or low in that particular trait. This makes the Big Five model distinct from many pop psychology systems
