Editorial Reviews

In keeping with the parable style, Lencioni (The FiveTemptations of a CEO) begins by telling the fable of woman who,as CEO of a struggling Silicon Valley firm, took control of adysfunctional executive committee and helped its members succeed asa team. Story time over, Lencioni offers explicit instructions forovercoming the human behavioral tendencies that he says corruptteams (absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment,avoidance of accountability and inattention to results). Succinctyet sympathetic, this guide will be a boon for those strugglingwith the inherent difficulties of leading a group.

Building a cohesive team is not complicated, declares Lencioni,president of his own management consulting firm and author ofThe Five Temptations of a CEO. Departing from the dry,theoretical writing of many management books, he presents his casein the context of a fictional organization, and in doing sosucceeds at communicating his ideas. The story is about a femaleCEO who is hired to bring together a dysfunctional executive staffto work as a team in a company that just two years earlier hadlooked promising. The scenarios that follow are recognizable andcan be applied anywhere teamwork is involved, whether it is amultinational company, a small department within a largerorganization, or a sports team. The five dysfunctions discussed areabsence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidanceof accountability, and inattention to results. At the end of thestory, the main points are summarized, and clearly writtensuggestions and exercises are offered to help, bring about change.Concise and easy to follow, this book is recommended for academicand public libraries with management collections and for anyone whois a member of a team that needs improvement. —Bellinda Wise,Nassau Community Call.
