-----------

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 ( /exec/obidos/ASIN/0787944335/%24%7B0%7D ) and Obsessions of an
Extraordinary Executive ( /exec/obidos/ASIN/0787954039/%24%7B0%7D ), this is highly recommended. --Howard Rothman

From Publishers Weekly
----------------------

In keeping with the parable style, Lencioni (The Five Temptations of a CEO) 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. 100,000 first printing.
