July book review: The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Patrick Lencioni
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Katheryn Petersen is put in charge of DecisionTech, a young promising 150-people Silicon Valley start-up, experiencing a series of disappointments: slipped deadlines, lost key employees, and deteriorated morale. With no high-tech experience and a limited political capital with the board, she does not seem to fit DecisionTech's corporate culture.

After interviewing members of the board and spending time with her executives, Katheryn realizes that they do not function as a cohesive unit. She dedicates her time, energy, and effort to addressing the issues preventing her executive team from reaching its full potential.

Katheryn introduces her executives to a teamwork development model and teaches them how to overcome team dysfunctions:

  1. Absence of Trust
  2. Fear of Conflict
  3. Lack of Commitment
  4. Avoidance of Accountability
  5. Inattention to Results

Will Katheryn be able to turn things around? Can she meet the revenue goals and dramatically increase the sales? Read this exciting and thought-provoking business novel to find out!
