Product description

Amazon.com Review

Once again using an astutely written fictional tale to unambiguously but painlessly deliver some hard truths about critical business procedures, Patrick Lencioni targets group behavior in the final entry of his trilogy of corporate fables. And like those preceding it, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is an entertaining, quick read filled with useful information that will prove easy to digest and implement. This time, Lencioni weaves his lessons around the story of a troubled Silicon Valley firm and its unexpected choice for a new CEO: an old-school manager who had retired from a traditional manufacturing company two years earlier at age 55. Showing exactly how existing personnel failed to function as a unit, and precisely how the new boss worked to reestablish that essential conduct, the book's first part colorfully illustrates the ways that teamwork can elude even the most dedicated individuals--and be restored by an insightful leader. A second part offers details on Lencioni's "five dysfunctions" (absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and inattention to results), along with a questionnaire for readers to use in evaluating their own teams and specifics to help them understand and overcome these common shortcomings. Like the author's previous books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive, this is highly recommended. --Howard Rothman

From Booklist

The final installment in a trilogy that includes The Five Temptations of a CEO (1998) and The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive (2000), this fictional story demonstrates how a new CEO reforms a dysfunctional executive team with a series of sometimes-painful off-site meetings designed to break them of bad habits. The company has superior tangible and intangible assets yet is behind its competitors in terms of revenue and customer growth. When Kathryn is brought on board to figure out why, she forces her reluctant team to examine their interpersonal behaviors, such as letting individual ego get in the way of team goals. She demands healthy conflict and accountability among the group and vigilantly prevents them from sliding back into old habits. Losing a couple executives in the process, she succeeds in turning the company around. Lencioni demonstrates his points effectively by getting the reader involved in the characters and the tension between them. He wraps up this "leadership fable" with a brief discussion containing additional suggestions on overcoming the five deadly dysfunctions. David Siegfried
