Book - 5 Dysfunctions of Team"Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people (i.e. "regular/imperfect/flawed people") to attain uncommon results." — Andrew Carnegie

I saw this statement at the bottom of my Leadership Wired newsletter.  Great quote.

Been thinking a lot about teamwork recently.  Even took the staff pastors through a book called The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni.  I LOVED the book.  I'd recommend it to anyone on a team (corporate, ministry, marriage, etc.).

The book is a easy-to-read story of a fictional team which illustrates some of a major dysfunctions which hamper true teamwork & how to overcome them.  It's a quick & insightful.  Even gives you a test to evaluate your level of teamwork.

Get the book & take your team(s) through it.  The 5 dysfunctions (starting with relational issues, and moving to productivity issues) are:

  1. Lack of Trust
  2. Fear of Conflict
  3. Lack of Commitment
  4. Avoidance of Accountability
  5. Inattention to Results

Anyone else out there read it?
