really liked it
Read from December 05 to 07, 2011

I don't usually read business books, especially since I am not exactly on track to become a CEO or anything like that. But my wife had to read this book for a training class at her job, and she liked it, so I decided to read it. I like the "fable" style of introducing business concepts. Mr. Lencioni has done a fine job of introducing his concept of the five dysfunctions in most management teams. (I was actually disappointed, as I thought this might be a book about the 2011 Boston Red Sox.)

The five dysfunctions as as follows: 1. Absence of trust 2. Fear of conflict 3. Lack of commitment 4. Avoidance of accountability 5. Inattention to results

I'm not going to go into explaining them here in this review, as he does a good job in the book.

Hmm...maybe it WAS about the 2011 Boston Red Sox, after all!
