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.

Editorial Reviews

"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." -- Publishers Weekly

"Lencioni concludes his trilogy of business fables (The Five Temptations of a CEO and Obsessions of an Ordinary Executive) with this story of a newly minted CEO and the challenges she faces when she discovers her team is highly dysfunctional. But, according to Lencioni, we shouldn’t worry, because all teams are inherently dysfunctional. The trick is finding ways to work around behavioral quirks and to put personality clashes aside. The flip side to the usual teamwork-oriented business book, this shows how weaknesses can become strengths. Lencioni reads the introduction, and his grating, slurring voice is in sharp contrast to Stransky’s smooth tones, clear diction, and perfect pronunciation." -- David Pitt, Booklist
