We are kicking off our startup book club at Google Campus with Patrick Lencioni's excellent book "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team"
A leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books. 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.
We will be sitting in Central Working from about 6pm, please come and join us for a glass of wine and chat. Email Lily: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, but equally feel free to just turn up.
