VIDEO: Chris Yonker Speaks on Organization Health – Part 2

In this video, Chris Yonker points to organizational health as the most important thing you can do to move yourself and your company forward. Chris talks about the book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni that radically altered his thinking about how he works with other people. The first dysfunction mentioned in Lencioni’s book is the absence of trust. People define trust in many different ways, but most people would say it means predictable behavior, though that is not the true meaning of trust. Trust is the ability to be fully vulnerable with someone else. The ability to bare your soul with other members of your team, knowing it’s alright and necessary to do so. As humans, we have a self-preservation instinct that makes it unnatural to be totally vulnerable, so true trust takes work. Chris discusses his approach with his coaching clients, going deep into their own self-worth and self-esteem. These are the areas that hold us back from being vulnerable with someone else.
