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.
Patrick Lencioni has written numerous business books including The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, The Three Signs of a Miserable Job, and The Three Big Questions for a Frantic Family. As president and founder of The Table Group, he has consulted to CEOs and leadership teams in organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies and professional sports teams to universities and non-profits. In addition to his books, his work have been featured in numerous publications including Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and USA Today.
