Product Description:
In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni onceagain offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling andinstructive as his first two best-selling books, The FiveTemptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of anExtraordinary Executive. This time, he turns his keen intellectand storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world ofteams.

Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimateleadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that itthreatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Willshe be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly grippingtale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as muchcourage as it does insight.

Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions whichgo to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-oftenstruggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps thatcan be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive,effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has writtena compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple messagefor all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.

Amazon.com Review:
Once again using an astutely written fictional tale to unambiguously but painlessly deliver some hard truths about critical business procedures, Patrick Lencioni targets group behavior in the final entry of his trilogy of corporate fables. And like those preceding it, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is an entertaining, quick read filled with useful information that will prove easy to digest and implement. This time, Lencioni weaves his lessons around the story of a troubled Silicon Valley firm and its unexpected choice for a new CEO: an old-school manager who had retired from a traditional manufacturing company two years earlier at age 55. Showing exactly how existing personnel failed to function as a unit, and precisely how the new boss worked to reestablish that essential conduct, the book's first part colorfully illustrates the ways that teamwork can elude even the most dedicated individuals--and be restored by an insightful leader. A second part offers details on Lencioni's "five dysfunctions" (absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and inattention to results), along with a questionnaire for readers to use in evaluating their own teams and specifics to help them understand and overcome these common shortcomings. Like the author's previous books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive, this is highly recommended. --Howard Rothman
