The Five Dysfunctions of a Team : An Illustrated Leadership Fable Paperback
Illustrated by Kensuke Okabayashi
The blockbuster bestseller now in a manga edition--fully illustrated and fun to read! Beautifully illustrated by Kensuke Okabayashi, this enthralling edition of Patrick Lencioni's massive bestseller gives readers a new format in which to understand the fascinating, complex world of teams.
Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech's CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company.
Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni's gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight. Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions that go to the 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.
This is a compelling fable with a powerful, yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional leaders. Kensuke Okabayashi (Jersey City, NJ) is a working illustrator, a graduate of the School of Visual Arts, and an instructor at the Educational Alliance Art School in New York City.

Review by Parthurbook
Never judge a book by its format. This may be a manga-style presentation - and you might be able to read it in a couple of hours- but it contains deep, uncomfortable truths about people, teams and what can separate the great from the also-rans. Profound, insightful; I wish I'd read it 20 years ago
