The Five Dysfunctions Of A Team by Patrick Lencioni is one of my favorite all-time books on teambuilding and I've found a way to teach the lessons of this fantastic must-read book using hands-on experiential teambuilding games and now I want to share how I do this with you!

Which one strikes a chord with you? Which one is the pivotal dysfunction in your mind?
I have advised many a Teamwork Facilitators to use the book as the framework for their team training event.
But Lencioni in all his wisdom offers no experiential learning activities to drive home the lessons of his book.
