This new guidebook will be a core text on how to help student project teams confront and successfully resolve issues, tasks and problems. Sections include conceptual material, stories and illustrations, and exercises.

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. Sie war eigentlich froh über die neue Aufgabe gewesen. Doch hatte sie nicht ahnen können, dass ihr Team so fürchterlich dysfunktional war und die Teammitglieder sie vor eine Herausforderung stellen würden, 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 Führungskrise konfrontiert sieht: die Einigung eines Teams, das sich in einer solchen Unordnung befindet, dass es den Erfolg und das Überleben des gesamten Unternehmens gefährdet. Im Verlauf der Geschichte enthüllt Lencioni die fünf entscheidenden Dysfunktionen, die oft dazu führen, dass Teams scheitern. Er stellt ein Modell und umsetzbare Schritte vor, die zu einem effektiven Team führen und die fünf Dysfunktionen beheben. Diese Dysfunktionen sind: - Fehlendes Vertrauen, - Scheu vor Konflikten, - Fehlendes Engagement, - Scheu vor Verantwortung, - Fehlende Ergebnis-Orientierung. Wie in seinen anderen Büchern hat Patrick Lencioni eine fesselnde Fabel geschrieben, die eine wichtige Botschaft für alle enthält, die danach streben, außergewöhnliche Teamleiter und Führungskräfte zu werden.
