Dysfunctionally Happy Camper

Updated: Jan 27, 2020

BOOK REVIEW the sun is out, I'm surrounded by a myriad of VW vehicles old and new, yet something else has my undivided attention...a book called 'The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team (Manga Edition)' by Patrick Lencioni. The strapline calls it "An illustrated Leadership Fable" and wow does this book deliver!

It tells the tale of DesignTech, a software company who - despite having more experienced executives, more cash, better technology and more connections than its rivals - are under-performing. The CEO Jeff has asked to step down and Kathryn steps in to lead the 8 execs through these VUCA times (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous).
