    Patrick Lencioni is president of The Table Group, a San Francisco Bay Area management consulting firm, and author of the best-selling books The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive and The Five Temptations of a CEO. In addition to his work as an executive coach and consultant, Pat is a sought-after speaker. Prior to founding The Table Group, he worked at the management consulting firm Bain & Company, Oracle Corporation, and Sybase, where he was vice president of organizational development. He is on numerous advisory boards and sits on the National Board of Directors for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. Over the years, Pat has worked with hundreds of executive teams and CEOs–all struggling, at one time or another, with the potential for dysfunction among their teams.
    Pat lives with his wife, Laura, and their twin boys, Matthew and Connor, in the San Francisco Bay Area. You can reach him at The Table Group’s web site, www.tablegroup.com, or at patricklencioni@tablegroup.com.
    In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni once again offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive. This time, he turns his keen intellect and storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world of teams.

    Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight.

    Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.

    • 5 Dysfunctions of a Team

      A great story that examines that work is more than getting the list accomplished- it is about working well together as a team above all, and allowing the fruit of such to shape everything else. An easy read... I enjoyed the read.

    • An excellenct job demonstrating the very obstacle that prevents many businesses from getting to that next level. Too many teams are their own obstacle, a must read for anyone looking to realize what a team is truly capable of and how to really tap into its potential. A very easy read as well.

    • Business books can be a bore, but the 5 Dysfunctions does a great job of bringing you into a team-based situation that suddenly seems very familiar, but gives you an excellent opportunity to examine where the breakdown, or dysfunction, is and improve the situation.
