Summary Description

In his 2002 New York Times best-seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni explained why teams, even when they are made up of good people, often deliver bad results.

Specifically, he described five common reasons for team failure:

  1. Absence of trust;
  2. Fear of conflict;
  3. Lack of commitment;
  4. Avoidance of accountability; and
  5. Inattention to results.

The book outlined the problems that are so familiar to executives, but it left readers wanting more information on how to implement the ideas that Lencioni introduced. Now, in Overcoming the Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Lencioni provides the answers. He offers practical guidance for overcoming the five barriers to better team performance.

Lencioni is the president of The Table Group, a San Francisco area management consulting firm. His other books include The Five Temptations of a CEO, The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive, and Death by Meeting.

In this summary, we will explain how leaders, line managers, and consultants alike can get their teams up and running, quickly and effectively.
