Framework to build a well functioning team:

Overcoming the Five Dysfunctions of a Team: How Valid Creates a  Results-Oriented Organizational Culture - Valid

“Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.”

Vulnerability and build trust: “Great teams do not hold back with one another. They are unafraid to air their dirty laundry. They admit their mistakes, their weaknesses, and their concerns without fear of reprisal.”

Accountability with trust : “Push with respect, and under the assumption that the other person is probably doing the right thing. But push anyway. And never hold back.”

Disagree & Commit – “Great teams make clear and timely decisions and move forward with complete buy-in from every member of the team, even those who voted against the decision. They leave meetings confident that no one on the team is quietly harboring doubts about whether to support the actions agreed on.”

A First Team – is the idea that true leaders prioritize supporting their fellow leaders over their direct reports—that they are responsible to their peers more than they are to their individual or “Second” teams.
