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.

Great for any organization

Do not think this book is strictly for businesses. I am the commander of the criminal investigations division of a law enforcement agency & so many things in this book translate very easily because it's more about human behavior & dynamics than corporate operations. The book was given to me by my pastor because it is a staple amongst him & the leadership of our church.

Get this, you will not regret it.

Very applicable to any leader for manager. Enjoyed listening to this book. The epilogue was especially great.


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.
