The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable, Patrick Lencioni, Jossey-Bass Publishers, San Francisco, CA, 2002.

Once again, this unique book has been mentioned in one of my advanced executive coaching classes. So I recently bought it and have found myself saying out loud every couple of pages “This is so true!” Lencioni is right on target!

Lencioni has created a simple but powerful fable (that we all can identify with) about the chaos and ripple effect of broken teams in today’s work world. Genuine healthy teamwork is rare in our professional or even in our personal lives despite everyone’s best intentions. Lencioni tells us what to do about it and why we need to do it. And. if you like this book, watch for my April e-newsletter for a review of Lencioni’s newest book, The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business, 2012.
