[Book Review] The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni

Once I picked up Patrick Lencioni’s book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, I could not put it down. This is a wonderfully written book on how to foster high performing teams.

Patrick’s book is written as a novel with Kathryn as newly appointed CEO of DecisionTech, a promising start-up just outside Silicon Valley. She has an executive team of bright, competitive and high performing individuals. Kathryn is brought in because the company is not living up to the owners expectations and they are behind their competitors. It does not take long before she realise how crippled her executive team is. The book is the story of how she is coaching these executives from individuals to a team.
