Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on the New York Times best-selling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

"Lencioni is fast defining the next generation of leadership thinkers."

—Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager™ and Full Steam Ahead

In the years following the publication of Patrick Lencioni's best-seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, fans have been clamoring for more information on how to implement the ideas outlined in the book.

In Overcoming the Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Lencioni offers more specific, practical guidance for overcoming the Five Dysfunctions—using tools, exercises, assessments, and real-world examples. He examines questions that all teams must ask themselves: Are we really a team? How are we currently performing? Are we prepared to invest the time and energy required to be a great team?

Written concisely and to the point, this guide gives leaders, line managers, and consultants alike the tools they need to get their teams up and running quickly and effectively.

Book News Annotation:

Lencioni is president of a San Francisco Bay area management consulting firm and the author of four business texts, including the 2000 bestseller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.
