Five Dysfunctions, Psychological Safety, and its Neurobiological Foundation

The speakers will present the model of the 5 dysfunctions of a team, founded by Patrick Lencioni, and derive the corresponding model of success factors for teams. Trust as the basis of cooperation forms the connection to psychological security and the bridge to innovation, creativity and productivity. At the same time, both the 5 success factors and psychological security serve central human neurobiological motives and provide motivation and a sense of belonging.
