Abstract
A 10-12 PLC team was surveyed on their personal beliefs about how their team functions. The survey results were calculated and evaluated using Lencioni?s (2002) five Dysfunctions of a Team. Although this is a particularly close-knit team a Lack of Accountability was found to be the major weak area. Three suggestions are offered to aid in the team?s ability to hold each other and themselves accountable to the goals of the team to achieve better results. Keywords: team dysfunction, survey, professional learning community
