In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, bestselling business author Patrick Lencioni once again offers a powerful and instructive leadership fable. Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions that go to the very heart of why teams –– even the best ones –– often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles to build a cohesive, effective team.
Patrick presents one of the most outstanding solutions to one of the most classic management problems in any organization: Team building, getting everyone on the same page cooperating together. Of the several books Patrick has written, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team has sold over a million copies and is still selling years later. I have used it with Wise Counsel members and CEOs in our group meetings. Some members have used it in or before their strategic planning meetings. It changes how employees and leaders see each other, has helped them be more open and honest, and made each more direct in sharing their opinions without being fearful of reprimand. This has excellent training tool, stories and examples. Great example for Biblical wisdom in action in a company and how to overcome fears and interpersonal conflicts that every organization has to tackle.
