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. If you can persuade everyone to ‘row in the same direction’, you can gain market leadership in any given industry, on any market, against […]

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.

Team building sounds like an easy job but managing the process is very difficult.

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:

"Our cooperation with Concordia commenced in 2013. We launched a three-stage training program for our sales organisers, comprising of team building / team management, individual development and efficient meeting management. The experts and trainers from Concordia displayed profound and substantial professionalism in the course of preparing the programs and administering the initial trainings. Our cooperation also included the training of our own in-house trainer partners. This was undertaken by Bea Busch, Tamás Szilágyi and Balázs Kosztra who proved to be exceedingly supportive, flexible and helpful. I can highly recommend Concordia to anyone looking for both practical solutions that can be readily deployed and solid theoretical foundations with reliable empirical backing."
