Patrick Lencioni is an American writer of topics like business and team management.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team speaks about the basics of teamwork by using the story of a technology company that is struggling to gain traction.

The CEO recognizes the potential of the organisation but the executives do not work well as a team and impact the organisation negatively.

The absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability and inattention to results are the 5 dysfunctions that become evident with time.

The book outlines actionable steps to overcome these hurdles and become a cohesive team.
