Nach ihren ersten zwei Wochen als neuer CEO von DecisionTech fragte sich Kathryn Petersen angesichts der dortigen Probleme, ob es wirklich richtig gewesen war, den Job anzunehmen.

Doch hatte sie nicht ahnen k?nnen, dass ihr Team so f?rchterlich dysfunktional war und die Teammitglieder sie vor eine Herausforderung stellen w?rden, die sie niemals zuvor so erlebt hatte ... In "Die 5 Dyfunktionen eines Teams" begibt sich Patrick Lencioni in die faszinierende und komplexe Welt von Teams. In seiner Leadership-Fabel folgt der Leser der Geschichte von Kathryn Petersen, die sich mit der ultimativen F?hrungskrise konfrontiert sieht: die Einigung eines Teams, das sich in einer solchen Unordnung befindet, dass es den Erfolg und das ?berleben des gesamten Unternehmens gef?hrdet. Im Verlauf der Geschichte enth?llt Lencioni die f?nf entscheidenden Dysfunktionen, die oft dazu f?hren, dass Teams scheitern. Er stellt ein Modell und umsetzbare Schritte vor, die zu einem effektiven Team f?hren und die f?nf Dysfunktionen beheben. Diese Dysfunktionen sind: - Fehlendes Vertrauen, - Scheu vor Konflikten, - Fehlendes Engagement, - Scheu vor Verantwortung, - Fehlende Ergebnis-Orientierung. Wie in seinen anderen B?chern hat Patrick Lencioni eine fesselnde Fabel geschrieben, die eine wichtige Botschaft f?r alle enth?lt, die danach streben, au?ergew?hnliche Teamleiter und F?hrungskr?fte zu werden.
