I'm not big fan of fables but this was so well written and realistic. I could literally picture each person and their personality as a real person I have meet or work with. I thought this was laid out perfectly and kept my interested throughout the entire book.
The summary section at the end was also useful. Bets book on team building I have come across so far.
What a great read the story was easy to follow and yet entertaining. What I've learned from this book will be shared with my team as well as giving each one of my team members the book to read. The concepts are easy and I look forward to implementing this in my workplace.
Leadership is not something which is given by virtue of ones role or responsibilities, it is something which is applicable to everyone on all walks of life. while the message in the book is directed to corporate world, the inner meaning is something that has to be understood and applied in all aspects of life.
Leadership in the service of others, to inspire innovative thoughts & actions, to 'connect the dots' & create our future, this is my crusade
The content of the message is enhanced by the fact that it is presented as a story about people we can all identify with. The framework layout by the author is clear and consistent through out the book.
If you listen to this book and don't come away with a plan as to how you can improve yourself and any team you are part of, I would be very surprise.
At the risk of sounding overstated, this book was transformative for me. It Identified several issues I had always suspected but never been able to put a finger on, and gave great tools for working on them in an easygoing, fast-read storyline. I see myself listening to this one on a regular basis for reinforcement.
Patrick Lencioni has a way of story telling that's unusual. He puts a full story together that's easy to follow and makes sense. I enjoy his books.
It was great to get perspectives from many different personality types through this novel format. Definitely some take aways for how to address a dysfunctional team.
This book was extremely easy to understand and very helpful in organizing my thinking as a leader of a team. I am excited to share these ideas with my team and the other officers of our organization
This book uses real life scenarios to demonstrate typical logjams that can cripple teams. Thoughtful consideration is given to differentiating between teams with highly skilled members that can become dysfunctional, and those that employ the necessary fundamentals mentioned herein to help ensure success.
I highly recommend the audio version of this book!
