Patrick Lencioni's books are the most approachable books on vital business knowledge I have ever read. Using the "fable" format is powerful.
This is Lencioni's latest book. I can't tell you how excited I was to hear about it, but a confusing caveat
---This book is the LEAST practical of all his previous books. Previous books tackle very "core" subjects:
-Breaking down Silo's
- Effectiveness in leadership
- Team dysfunction etc...
This one attacks something needed in 2011.
The reason we all ended up in this big mess of a recession.
The reason we'll not find our way out for a while because of a lack of.....
PROFESSIONAL CANDOR AND INTEGRITY IN ALL THINGS
Not in a wussy, soft way. But in a real sense, in a way that will make us money because of the power that this kind of honesty creates.
Why is this not a practical skill? Because many people don't want this.
Your boss is probably one of them.
But one day, you are going to be the boss.
And you need to start working on these skills today.
If you have ever found power in honesty, candor, direct but constructive dialogue
- this book is like opium.
I read it in 24 hours, couldn't put it down.
Patrick Lencioni rules.
Get the book, find out why.
Ps. I can't guarantee this book is for you but I CAN say that one on the list is.
