Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the illustrated edition of The Five Dysfunctions of A Teamby Patrick Lencioni who provides a powerful theory about the five behaviors that corrupt teams. His insights are both groundbreaking and simple, and they are presented in a way that can be applied in any organization - immediately. The five dysfunctions:

1. Inattention to Results: The desire for individual credit erodes the focus on collective success.

2. Avoidance of Accountability: The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding one another accountable for their behaviors.

3. Lack of Commitment: The fear of being wrong prevents members of teams from making decisions in a timely and definitive way.

4. Fear of Conflict: The desire for preserving harmony eliminates the occurrence of productive, ideological conflict.

5. Absence of Trust: The fear of being vulnerable in front of team members prevents the building of trust within the team.

The book begins with the fictional story of a woman who becomes CEO of a struggling, high-profile Silicon Valley company with a dysfunctional executive team that turns things around. Following the story is an analysis of the five dysfunctions, diagnostic questions to help readers assess their organizations, and a teamwork model giving them action steps to overcome the dysfunctions.

In illustrated format, it will reach out to those who comprehend better with pictures, the younger age group, lower level management executives as well as non-English speaking natives especially in Japan, Korea and China.

Synopsis:

The blockbuster bestseller now in a manga edition--fully illustrated and fun to read!

Beautifully illustrated by Kensuke Okabayashi, this enthralling edition of Patrick Lencioni's massive bestseller gives readers a new format in which to understand the fascinating, complex world of teams. Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight.

Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions that go to the 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 and build a cohesive, effective team. This is a compelling fable with a powerful, yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional leaders.

Kensuke Okabayashi (Jersey City, NJ) is a working illustrator, a graduate of the School of Visual Arts, and an instructor at the Educational Alliance Art School in New York City.
