Employing a small but striking fable of a fictitious Company named Decision Tech, Patrick Lencioni proceeds to illustrate the perils of a team working at cross purposes and displaying classic symptoms of discord, disharmony and dysfunctional behaviour.
Kathryn Petersen is elected as the new CEO of a once high flying, but now struggling Decision Tech. While excited at the prospect of new challenges staring her in the face, Kathryn soon realises that uneasy lies the head that adorns the crown! A daunting challenge in the form of a high strung, mutually suspicious, non-cooperative and highly individualistic group of talented but temperamental executives threaten to jeopardise the very future of the Company.
How Kathryn reigns the warring factions in while at the same time allowing them to express themselves freely forms the core and crux of this interesting book.
