The five disfunction of a team

Patrick Lencioni: You need a team Five objectives of successful cooperation HVG Kiadó, September 2009 The definitive factor of competitiveness is not money, nor strategy or technology, but rather team work.

any competitor.

The key to real team work is being able to control and constrain your traits that stop you from effectively cooperating with others, that demolish communities and yield discord.

The author uses an exciting story to demonstrate how an IT firm lost much of its good reputation within merely two years, and how a new CEO, hired from outside, managed to create a solid team in hardly fought battles which carried the company back to the top.

This captivating fable guides you through the typical operative dysfunctions of teams, and gives you an insight into the five-stage leadership model of team building.


The Hungarian translation is based on the following publication:

"As a pharmaceutical company, health is our main focus and concern every minute of the day. With that in mind, we also wanted to do something for the health of our company. It was through a corporate health check that we were acquainted with Concordia. The best way to improve your own health is to know your organisation, and Concordia has proven to be an indispensable help in learning about ourselves and in discovering the areas where intervention was necessary to maintain or restore health. Such a process could never be completed without proper skills and an innate sense of empathy. Concordia has both. Egis is now a healthy company, thanks to you!"
