The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team

Patrick Lencioni

One the programs or methodologies I enjoyed and is the catalyst that propelled me into creating this website is Patrick Lencioni’s “The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team”. It was truly inspiring.


The inspiration got me thinking and looking at my team and my leadership skills. At the same time some of my staff had shared with me that they felt there were areas as a team where we were dysfunctional. So from the inspiration and guidance I was feeling, I dove into The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team and began a journey. A challenging one for sure, but rewarding and one that produced positive results in the end.


As a side note I had to adjust it for my staff, not for an executive team and the book is based on.


This video is an overview of The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team and a good introduction for you. I also encourage you to get the full audio and paper versions of the book. You will really enjoy the story and all of its meanings.


Enjoy your journey!
