Description

  • Great product!
  • 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
