Publisher Description

After her first two weeks observing the problems at DecisionTech, Kathryn Petersen, its new CEO, had more than a few moments when she wondered is she should have taken the job. But Kathryn knew there was little chance she would have turned it down. After all, retirement had made her antsy, and nothing excited her more than a challenge. What she could not have known when she accepted the job, however, was just how dysfunctional her team was, and how team members would challenge her in ways that no one ever had before.

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 bestselling 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.

Useful

All in all, seems like a useful and straightforward framework for understanding and navigating interpersonal psychology, though it doesn't leave much room for variation in working and communication styles.

Frustrating chapter layout

While the content is great, I’m trying to follow along with a team that has a hard copy of the book and the chapters labeled as tracks don’t match the actual book. Frustrated to not know where I am in the book. Had to reference the book to find that Tracks 1-6 were all of Chapter 1. This is just sloppy work.

Must read for all teams

I really enjoy the author’s approach to teaching thru storytelling. It is what makes his audio books so much fun to listen to and to listen to multiple times. He lays out the idea of to work together as a team…and how being aware of the 5 dysfunctions can help the team thrive. I also find highlighting the hardcover book while listening helps to lock in the message. This is required reading and discussion at my employer and it really works.
