Creating Competent, Focused and Highly Effective Ministry Teams

Introduction and Course Overview

This workshop is based on the book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team; a Leadership Fable by Patrick Lencioni. The principles Lencioni outlines are the fundamental building blocks of any well-functioning team and are especially suitable for teams that want to become more intentional  and focus on ministry results while creating higher levels of competence, focus and effectiveness.
