like a great biography.
The fact that its a fable makes it easier to engage.
Worth a listen.
Enlighten perspective about a Team. Traditionally in team formation, being a leader supposed not only to lead but also to use the Pyramid concept to have the team for leading them self to common goal
The Pyramid concept.
A must read.
I'm a corporate training consultant and adjunct professor who loves to read! I'm always looking for the next big thing.
The benefits of an effective team are countless. Sadly, it's very difficult to create an effective team. The ideas in this book are presented in an easy-to-understand manner through the use of a leadership fable. They are not complex ideas; however, they're difficult to implement in the real world of business. In some ways, I would say that they're a bit idealistic. Is that a bad thing? Not really. In fact, I would go as far as to say that if more business leaders implemented the ideas in this book, corporate America would be a much different--and better place!
Good business books are rare, the business book publishing machine is content to churn out time wasters... but not this book. The 5 principles are presented in a way that help a person see and then diagnose dysfunctions that undermine high performance. If you are a team leader and things are not clicking for you and your team then this is probably the best 3 hours you can spend to help turn it around. I am a team leader, and this book has helped me. Thank you Patrick Lencioni.
Patrick has done a fabulous job providing a great resource that complements the fable.
The concept of conflict is good and nessessary while alot of organizations avoid this factor.
I really enjoyed how the Author presented the idea through a Story then the conculsion had the theories behind it; Well narrated, well written. I fully recommend this to Managers and Leaders
I felt a connection to the team leader in the story and could see myself being capable of leading in the same way. This is because the principles of the book are built on solid truth that apply to every person (honesty, courage, accountability, intentional communication, etc.), no matter their God-given skills.
The author told a valuable story by walking through a soap opera work atmosphere that is easy to relate to
This is a good book with lots of good advice, but the spoken version is missing the exercises, the charts and the graphs.
If the author had provided a website (or if Audible can shoot me to a page that supports the book) where I could have gone to get the additional material so obviously missing from this version it would be worth the price, but it's seriously flawed as presented.
This is a reference book -- something I'd want to return to again and again. There's no way to do that with the Audible version -- no way to bookmark a section. I can at least do that with a e-book or printed version.
Based on this experience with "how to" books in spoken format, I'll have to drop this type of book from my audio listening pleasure.
This is a must read if you work in groups for business, school, church, or any organization. Was able to pinpoint where my own organizations team was struggling and more importantly, learned how to correct the course.
