After focusing on topics ranging from teamwork and leadership to employee engagement and meetings New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni has finally turned his attention toward his own craft—consulting and client service. Tapping into the simple but powerful model that his firm, The Table Group, has been built on, Lencioni presents what may be his most engaging, humorous audiobook yet.
Getting Naked tells the remarkable story of a management consultant who is trying desperately to merge two firms with very different approaches to serving clients. One relies on vulnerability and complete transparency; the other focuses on proving its competence and protecting its reputation for intellectual prowess. In the process of managing the merger, the consultant is forced to learn life-changing lessons that prove to be as relevant as they are painful.
As he does in his other audiobooks, Lencioni provides readers with concepts that are accessible and compelling. He explains the three fears that provoke service providers to unknowingly sabotage their ability to build trust and loyalty. And, as always, Lencioni provides a practical approach for overcoming those fears.

The principles in the book were presented well. I would have enjoyed it more if the author used his own real world examples instead of the fictional story.
After reading the reviews I knew Dan's performance was solid and I wasn't let down. I would look for more books read by him.
I am happy with the purchase and will utilize the principles in the book. I would recommend this book to friends and colleagues.
This is a great book for anyone involved in professional services. It gets to the heart of what makes client relationships rich and fulfilling.
The story line is believable and not overly sappy. I'm not a big fan of the business fable genre but I loved this business fable.
Woren does a great job of story telling. I will look for him again.
I found myself looking for things I could do so I could get in more listening time. Had I read the book in print I think it would have gone down in one sitting.
The story was almost like reading fiction but with a purpose and learning from every line and scene. Such a great approach to business learning.

Patrick Lencioni delivers another easy to read business fable full of insights and lessons.
This time, it is about humility, vulnerability and doing the right things for customers. While it is intended as a playbook for consultants, the principles it teaches are valuable for all kinds of business and personal life.
It was an easy way to learn a business skill - nice change to a how-to book
none - they all worked well
I enjoyed this book - will get more of these business fables by the author.
This was a very enjoyable read that also challenged me at the same time. It was a unique and very special combination that frequently made me laugh. The author was able to convey the message in a manner (writing style) that was totally consistent with the message itself, which brought great integrity to it. The writing was from a first person perspective of Jack Bauer, who was forced to learn a new approach to consulting. As we, the reader, follow Jack in his journey, we get to learn his thoughts, empathize with his growth pains and frustrations, learn a new approach, and become transformed in his perspective. It's a soft-sell approach, but very compelling. Narration was easy to listen and complimented the writing style. It kept an upbeat pace, but not too fast.
Finding out he was on speakerphone during the second KNB meeting, and the reason why.
