The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

The Five Dysfunctions of a TeamI just completed reading this book by Patrick Lencioni.  In the world of business books, I rarely say this but this book is “absolutely phenomenal.”

Lencioni uses a very engaging story-telling method to convey the real problems any business team and particularly executive leadership teams face.  It is an incredibly fast read, I read it in two sittings.  I cannot imagine a business team (even the most high performing) that could not take some morsel from this book and focus their team towards organizational improvement.  It should be required reading for any management team out there.

This book would also be very valuable reading for students at MBA or executive management programs.  It provides solid context for the five critical areas where team dysfunction can occur.  And the book outlines it better than any organizational behavior course I’ve taken and is a case-study within itself.

Check out other readers’ reviews of the book over at Shelfari.  And if you want to buy it, you can find it here at Amazon.  BTW, if you want to ‘friend’ me over there, you can find me http://www.shelfari.com/lpaglia.

Okay, time to shift.  Next up, Inside Steve’s Brain.
