Abstract:

After her first two weeks observing the problems at Decision Tech, Kathryn Petersen, its new CEO, had more than a few moments when she wondered if she should have taken the job. But Kathryn knew there was little chance she would have turned it down. After all, retirement had made her antsy, and nothing excited her more than a challenge. What she could not have known when she accepted the job, however, was just how dysfunctional her team was, and how team members would challenge her in ways that no one ever had before. Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: uniting a team that is in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? [In this book, the author's] riveting tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight. Throughout the story, [he] reveals the five dysfunctions that go to the very heart of why teams - even the best ones - often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. [Here, the author] has written a compelling fable with a deceptively simple yet powerful message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.-Dust jacket.
