This unusual, instructive and entertaining fable shines light on dysfunctional teams.

Bestselling business author and screenwriter Lencioni weaves a fictional story of the highly capable Kathryn Petersen who has an amazing capacity for building teams. Kathryn becomes the CEO of a struggling, high-profile company with an exceptionally dysfunctional executive team and 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. “As compelling, readable and practical as his other books. I’m sure this will be another business classic.” – Richard Carr, President & CEO, TEC International

“Every manager and executive will recognize themselves somewhere in this book. Lencioni distills the problems that keep even the most talented teams from realizing their full potential. Even more important, he shows – in prose that is crisp, clear, and fun to read – how to solve them.” – Geoffrey A. Moore, Chairman, The Chasm Group; Author, Crossing the Chasm; Inside the Tornado; Living on the Fault Line
