Book Review - 5 dysfunctions of a team - Patrick Lencioni

 Have you noticed, some teams which look excellent on paper, doesn't shine at all whereas some teams which looks ordinary outshines and create extraordinary results?

This is not only applicable to sports team but to any team.
What could be the reason for this?
Well, Patrick Lencioni, in his book "5 dysfunctions of a team" talks about the reasons of dysfunctions and how to overcome it.

Each dysfunction has a direct impact on a teams performance and hampers overall productivity.

Good news is that, as a manager or a leader, we can overcome all these dysfunctions.


5 dysfunctions are -
1. Lack of trust
2. Fear of conflict
3. Lack of commitment
4. Avoidance of accountability
5. Inattention to results.


Teams that lack trust -
1. Focus only on weakness of each other
2. Don't ask for help or a piece of advice
3. Hate meetings and avoid spending time together

Teams that fear conflict -
1. Hesitate to voice opinions and concerns
2. Engage in backchannel communication and politics
3. Have personal attacks rather than discussing the actual issues

This book is a must read for any one who manages team and thinking of how to improve the team performance.
