In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni onceagain offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling andinstructive as his first two best-selling books, The FiveTemptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of anExtraordinary Executive.

Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly grippingtale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as muchcourage as it does insight.

Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions whichgo to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-oftenstruggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps thatcan be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has writtena compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple messagefor all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.
