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.

Bestsellerautor John P. Kotter hat in den letzten 35 Jahren beobachtet, was Menschen tun, damit ihre Unternehmen gut funktionieren. Auf diesen Erkenntnissen basiert sein neues Buch. Hier spricht Kotter von der Dringlichkeit, permanent nach wichtigen Belangen im Unternehmen Ausschau zu halten und im Bedarfsfall so schnell wie möglich zu handeln, um ein Unternehmen wandlungsfähig und damit erfolgreich zu machen. Menschen, die ein Gespür für diese Dringlichkeit besitzen, suchen automatisch immer nach Risiken, die das Unternehmen gefährden sowie nach Möglichkeiten zur Verbesserung. Kotter erklärt, wodurch sich echte Dringlichkeit auszeichnet, weshalb sie ein unschätzbar wertvolles Gut ist und wie Manager das Gefühl für Dringlichkeit in ihrem Umfeld wecken, stärken und bewahren können. Seine Ausführungen erläutert Kotter an zahlreichen Beispielen aus der ganzen Welt.
