  • The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Patrick Lencioni

    Story

    In keeping with the parable style, Patrick Lencioni begins by telling the fable of a woman who, as CEO of a struggling Silicon Valley firm, took control of a dysfunctional executive committee and helped its members succeed as a team. Story time over, Lencioni offers explicit instructions for overcoming the human behavioral tendencies that he says corrupt teams. Succinct yet sympathetic, this guide will be a boon for those struggling with the inherent difficulties of leading a group.

    Overall

    So many business-related books cannot push our buttons if they do not hit us where we are at the time. This book is no exception. If you are a lone-wolf with a savior complex, this book will never meet a need for you. If you have found that team-leadership is crucial to the long-term, real success of your organization, then you will get a great deal from this book. These disfunctions are very real, and affect us all very similarly. Lencioni puts it in good, understandable terms with workable ideas and solutions that anyone can use for a foundation for change.

    Overall

    This is my first Silva novel, and I was not sorry that I spent one of my Audible credits on this one. It had many elements that this genre has come to provide its readers; good pace, well-developed characters, ample character connection and a well-thoughtout plot. Occassionally, these spy/government novels can have a plot that loses the reader while following a lost character. This did not happen in this rendering. I will select another Silva novel based on a positive experience with this one.

    Story

    Ellery Queen likes sophistication, savoir faire, and all the swinging assets of Manhattan and its environs. So what in the world is he doing in this unearthly place? It is the job of the famous detective to find out which of the Wrights is the town poisoner. He must match his wits with a diabolically cunning and ruthless killer, while defending himself against a charge of murder.

    Overall

    If you like Ellery Queen, you will enjoy this one as well. He gets personally involved in the lives of others by choice, if not by design. The twists and turns are not revolutionary or mind-boggling, but they are enough to keep a mystery reader/listener interested and involved. This is a book that most people who enjoy classic style will want in their collection, albeit, not as a primary selection.
