In my opinion Lencioni's model for a healthy organization is very good! The audible read is well done, and read by the author himself. Lencioni reads well. I had listened to some of his talks on youtube, so was especially glad to hear him read his own book. Lencioni states the premise of his book thusly: "The single greatest advantage any company can achieve is organizational health. Yet it is ignored by most leaders even though it is simple, free, and available to anyone who wants it." I am a pastor of a Presbyterian Church, and although there are significant differences in a church and business and what makes them healthy, nevertheless, the church functions as an organization in part, and much of what Lencioni says is as applicable to the church in that respect as to other organizations. Because the "leadership team" of churches -- especially smaller and middle-sized churches -- is scattered throughout the week, some of his comments about "meetings" are not feasible; but others are very significant. This book brings together the models presented in several business fables Lencioni has written, and I personally am very appreciative of both the fables and this compilation of his thought. I highly commend it.
