I have seen the issues that this book addresses in numerous situations; specifically, the inability of teams, including upper management teams, to realize their potential to make their company great. The style of this book, written as a parable, is an easy read, yet it delivers the necessary message. The author does an excellent job setting foundation, then explaining why certain actions need to be taken. I recommend this for individuals who want to lead or participate in high performing teams.

This book is helpful to anyone who serves on a team and specifically helpful for team leaders. You will see yourself and your team in this book. More than that, you will find specific steps you can take to make your team better. Through a real life fable, Pat leads you through the steps you need to take to move a team from dysfunction to health. You will find a clear model as well as examples that are as relevant as your last meeting. As I read this book I discovered: 1. A vocabulary I can use with my team to discuss dysfunction. 2. A self-analysis that will get the discussion started. 3. A clear model for implementation. As a team leader, this book challenged me to: 1) Lead selflessly 2) Take risks 3) Encourage conflict 4) Embrace the power of meetings 4) Direct my team around a common theme This book is simple, practical and filled with wisdom. Highly recommended. Read More

Annotation Interwoven with the fictional story of a woman who becomes CEO of a struggling, high-profile company with a dysfunctional executive team is an analysis of five behavioral problems that can ruin any productive environment. To remedy these common "dysfunctions," Lencioni offers a set of diagnostic questions to help readers assess their organizations and a model readers can follow to increase teamwork in the office.
Editors Note In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni once again offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive. This time, he turns his keen intellect and storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world of teams.||Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight.||Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.
Editors Note 2 The author of The Five Temptations of a CEO presents a workplace fable on dysfunctional teamwork, citing the fictional example of CEO Kathryn Petersen, who identifies five "corruptions" that get in the way of her company's teamwork and how she implements action steps to overcome them. 100,000 first printing. $200,000 ad/promo.
