    I really enjoyed this little book. It's been on my list for a while, and got moved to the front of the list as we're going to discuss it at a management retreat next month. I can see why it is a classic. It covers several problems in team dynamic that resonate with things we're already...

    This is a story about a team of executives who are suffering from five dysfunctions that have pretty much crippled them. As repeated a few times in the book, they should be doing great. They have more money, a better product and more promise than their competitors, but they are failing...

    What the book is about? 1. A fictional tale of the corporate personality & process challenges people face on a day-to-day basis. 2. Written in a clear, easy-to-understand manner with each character being portrayed in a manner that anyone can relate to. 3. Divided into two ...

    Patrick Lencioni classified 5 dysfucntions of a team: 1. Abesent of trust 2. Fear of conflict 3. Lack of commitment 4. Avoidance of accountability 5. Inattention to result The story is little bit strange to me as the recruit or promotion of a senior management seems to ...

    Good book ... well, good ideas anyway. Just like I like the idea of a business novel/fable. I've just yet to see one that is written by a real writer with ... you know ... characters and action and stuff. Still, it's more interesting than the usual business book. What sets this book...

    This was helpful, I think. I liked the suggestions for nonintrusive team-building exercises re personal histories and work contributions (below). If you don't have time to read this, the 5 dysfunctions are: (1) absence of trust (manifests as invulnerability), (2) fear of conflict (...

    I'm so sad that this is the first book I've finished in 2012. It was chosen for a book study at school. It's an easy read, and has some very good points and good information for team building. But, books like this are just annoying to me. I'm not a fan of fables. It feels condescending...

    I really enjoyed this little book. It's been on my list for a while, and got moved to the front of the list as we're going to discuss it at a management retreat next month. I can see why it is a classic. It covers several problems in team dynamic that resonate with things we're already...

    I've been hesitant to read business-oriented books in the past. I've laid out my reasons why in a separate blog post. When I was invited to participate in a book club at work and read and discuss the business book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team I was thrilled to participate, but my ex...

    Bear with me. I am highly skeptical of models as methods versus tools (I will explain later) and of corporate literature. With that bias, this book would have been lucky to get three stars from me. Please keep that in mind. What I mean by a model as a method versus a tool, is that w...
