Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

Using the fable mode, listeners get a fly-on-the-wall perspective of a management team's interactions. Charles Stransky tidily characterizes each of the players at a high-tech company--the newly hired CEO and his highly dysfunctional team of managers, including the former CEO, the CFO, the COO, etc. Each character has his/her own agenda, and the listener can also hear his/her voice, thanks to the skillful Stransky, who delivers a solid narration, along with an inspiring strategy. Business leaders can glean strategy, examples, and determination through this fable. At the end, there are no-nonsense step-by-step directions to follow to create a functional team within any organization.

Amazon.com Review

Once again using an astutely written fictional tale to unambiguously but painlessly deliver some hard truths about critical business procedures, Patrick Lencioni targets group behavior in the final entry of his trilogy of corporate fables. And like those preceding it, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is an entertaining, quick read filled with useful information that will prove easy to digest and implement. This time, Lencioni weaves his lessons around the story of a troubled Silicon Valley firm and its unexpected choice for a new CEO: an old-school manager who had retired from a traditional manufacturing company two years earlier at age 55. Showing exactly how existing personnel failed to function as a unit, and precisely how the new boss worked to reestablish that essential conduct, the book's first part colorfully illustrates the ways that teamwork can elude even the most dedicated individuals--and be restored by an insightful leader. A second part offers details on Lencioni's "five dysfunctions" (absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and inattention to results), along with a questionnaire for readers to use in evaluating their own teams and specifics to help them understand and overcome these common shortcomings. Like the author's previous books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive, this is highly recommended. --Howard Rothman --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
