You need to read the first book, "The five dysfunctions of a team". After reading the first book you will discover what has been preventing your group from succeeding as a team. This book will now give you a simple step by step plan to resolve and overcome these issues and move on as a team. The big part of the excercise is getting to know each others personalities and understanding how to work with constructive conflict and produce results. We are six departemtn managers that have struggled to work together for years and now have the tools we need to work thru any problem together. I hope it works as well for your team.

Patrick Lencioni wrote this as a follow-up to his 2002 ¿fable,¿ The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. It applies the earlier book¿s concepts, and suggests many exercises, approaches, examples and explanations you can use as you apply those ideas. If you found the first book useful, you¿ll want this one, though you can still get a lot of utility from it even if you haven¿t read the original. Lencioni recaps his concepts clearly here, including developing trust among team members and keeping teams focused on their goals. The result is broadly applicable. We believe that readers who want a basic introduction to improving team function will appreciate this book. That said, those looking for more complex or theoretical approaches, or for tools to deal with specific challenges, such as knowledge management among teams, may need a more advanced manual.
