The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable

Using a fable that reads more like a novel, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team gets to the heart of why teams, even the best teams, struggle. The story is narrated by the newly appointed (fictional) CEO at a highly dysfunctional start-up company. While the story is unfolding, Lencioni slowly works in the underlying principles he proposes in order to deal with dysfunction. The five-point model he uses consists of: absence of trust, fear of conflict, avoidance of accountability, inattention to results and lack of commitment.

The beauty of this book is its reliability, practicality and simplicity. It is specifically helpful to anyone in a leadership role, but could be beneficial to anyone who is part of team.
