The five Dysfunctions of a Team

In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni 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?

The model is a pyramidal one, with 5 levels of dysfunction that must be resolved in order to get to a high performing team.  These five levels, in the order they should be attacked, are: The five Dysfunctions Dysfunction 1: Absence of Trust.
