Summary:

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.

    This book describes how working in a team should look. And gives you a plan to get there.

  • Lyly G

    Great book, excellent sorry telling with practical advice.

  • Helena V

    Excellent team-building book with clear direction for simple implementation. Lencioni's storytelling illustrates typical personality conflicts that many CEOs and HR managers deal with on a daily basis. This book substantiates that regardless of how great a product or service may be, it's the people who drive a company's success or failure. Narration was good but could have been a bit more captivating.

  • lori g

    Great working advise on team building. Not my favorite narrator, but easy to listen to.

    Good book, very illustrative. At first narrator seems to bite you but as time goes by you adapt, recommend listening in 1.25 speed

  • Christopher N

    Very good examples and cenário used to explain subject portrait ed

  • Brad Coelho

    Good book and very relevant in the workplace today.

  • Andy Clark

    This is my second favorite book by Lencioni. My favorite is the advantage. However this should not take away from how good this book truly is, it is more of a testament to Patrick's writing. This is a must read for every manager and should be added to curriculum for Business school.

    love the stories and relevance to building a team.

    It was not what I expected. It was okay for a coach building a baseball team.

    Content is good but the presentation is a bit dry.
