5 Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni

February 8, 2008 at 2:11 pm Leave a comment

This is my favourite kind of business book- the information is presented as a story.

We read the story of how Kathryn was thrown into the CEO position of DecisionTech. The current CEO was the founder of the company who had great startup skills, but lacked the ability to run a large business.

Her executive team display all the dysfunctions in the book ūüėČ and we take the position of a fly on the wall as she deals with them.

The accompanying workbook is not as much fun because it delves more deeply into the whys and hows of the dysfunctions. It offers real exercises so it would be a great resource for anyone dealing with the issues raised in the book.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
