Building a cohesive team is not complicated, declares Lencioni. Departing from the dry, theoretical writing of many management books, he presents his case in the context of a fictional organization, and in doing so succeeds at communicating his ideas. The scenarios are recognizable and can be applied anywhere teamwork is involved, whether it is a multinational company, a small department within a larger organization, or a sports team. At the end of the story, the main points are summarized, and clearly expressed suggestions and exercises are offered to help bring about change. Concise and easy to follow, this program is recommended for anyone who is a member of a team that needs improvement.
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is also available in print from Wiley.

"A gripping analysis of what makes teams work effectively. This fine work is a must-read for any leader that has come to grips with the fact that no one makes progress - much less succeeds - alone." (James Amos, president and CEO, Mail Boxes Etc.)
I think everything about this book was absolutely great! If you are new leader, it's a good start. If you are a veteran leader, it's a great refreshment.
Reminder to get back to the basics when leading people, teams and organizations. Very practical applications. Everyone has something to offer to the process of contributing to the success of an organization. A true leader gets the best out of the people they are leading.
Texas Aggie, Marine and professional services manager.
If some or all of the story does not get you thinking about the parallels in your leadership team, you either have a perfect leadership team or you are fooling yourself.
OPEN my eyes to what is right and wrong in management.
How clearly it comes thru.
This is a book o had to read for school, considering the amount of dialogue it was much easier to listen to than to read. The narrator did a wonderful job an d I enjoyed listening.
