The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Executive Agenda Executive Agenda July 24, 2019

It was difficult to decide what to write about in our very first blog post. So after developing various categories for our ideas, we selected a topic that was popular on our previous website.

In his book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni examines why effective teams are so rare, and he provides specific recommendations for eliminating barriers that lead to dysfunctional teams. The info graphic here summarizes Lencioni's work in a diagram that outlines the causes of team dysfunctionality and what can be done to overcome each one.

Our future posts will offer commentary on thought-provoking pieces from writers such as Jerry Harvey, Thomas Friedman and Simon Sinek along with our own leadership insights, marketing ideas, human resource issues, motivation, proven management techniques and more.

We hope you enjoy our new site and blog, and we hope you learn something, too!
