More about our book pick:

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is a business book by consultant and speaker Patrick Lencioni first published in 2002. It describes the many pitfalls that teams face as they seek to "grow together". This book explores the fundamental causes of organizational politics and team failure. The bulk of it is written as a business fable and has appeared on American best-seller lists including: The New York Times Best Seller List, Business Week, Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

According to the book, the five dysfunctions are:

1. Absence of trust - unwilling to be vulnerable within the group

2. Fear of conflict - seeking artificial harmony over constructive passionate debate

3. Lack of commitment - feigning buy-in for group decisions creates ambiguity throughout the organization

4. Avoidance of accountability - ducking the responsibility to call peers, superiors on counterproductive behavior which sets low standards

5. Inattention to results - focusing on personal success, status and ego before team success

Join us as we discuss, learn, and network together over a beverage and snack at fall Business Book Club! 

Haven’t read the book? Don’t let that stop you from coming to hear more about it. The conversation surrounding the book is just as beneficial as reading the book.
