In keeping with the parable style, Patrick Lencioni begins by telling the fable of a woman who, as CEO of a struggling Silicon Valley firm, took control of a dysfunctional executive committee and helped its members succeed as a team. Story time over, Lencioni offers explicit instructions for overcoming the human behavioral tendencies that he says corrupt teams (absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability and inattention to results). Succinct yet sympathetic, this guide will be a boon for those struggling with the inherent difficulties of leading a group. Building a cohesive team is not complicated, declares Lencioni. Departing from the dry, theoretical writing of many management books, he presents his case in the context of a fictional organization, and in doing so succeeds at communicating his ideas. The scenarios are recognizable and can be applied anywhere teamwork is involved, whether it is a multinational company, a small department within a larger organization, or a sports team. At the end of the story, the main points are summarized, and clearly expressed suggestions and exercises are offered to help bring about change. Concise and easy to follow, this program is recommended for anyone who is a member of a team that needs improvement.
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is also available in print from Wiley.



"A gripping analysis of what makes teams work effectively. This fine work is a must-read for any leader that has come to grips with the fact that no one makes progress - much less succeeds - alone." (James Amos, president and CEO, Mail Boxes Etc.)

Very Important for team leaders

Loved the book, the message but the story wasn't the most compelling. I might have been spoiled because I listened to the Phoenix Project before this.

Arbeiten im Team... wirklich harte Arbeit! Aber in diesem Titel auf die amerikanische Art: locker und leicht erzählt, don't forget to have fun, too! Die Erkenntnisse des Autors sind in einer kleinen Beispielgeschichte verpackt, in der eine Handlung stattfindet. An dieser kann man dann die Aussage des Autoren besser und auf Anhieb verstehen. Wirklich gut gemacht, und sehr kurzweilig zu hören. Ganz nebenbei grübelt man über sein eigenes Team nach und überlegt, was man besser machen könnte!
