"The Five Dysfunctions of a Team"

Author: Patrick Lencioni

March 16, 2023

Presentation Description

Back when we were young, we read all sorts of books for leisure, such as “Lord of the Rings”, “Harry Potter”, “A Wrinkle in Time”, etc. There was no requirement except that it was a good and entertaining read! However, things have changed now as adults – we also look for books that help us grow.  Especially, since we are also project managers (or aspiring project managers), we look for relevant books to help us become better project managers, better members of a team, and better leaders.  Let’s make the learning easier and have the material stick by taking part in the PMI-OC Book Club!

At this meeting, we will discuss the current book, "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" by Patrick Lencioni.  We will explore the content and its themes and discuss possible actionable takeaways. 

“Equal parts leadership fable and business handbook, this definitive source on teamwork by Patrick Lencioni reveals the five behavioral tendencies that go to the heart of why even the best teams struggle. He offers a powerful model and step-by-step guide for overcoming those dysfunctions and getting everyone rowing in the same direction.”.
