Publisher's Summary

This is the promise of The Advantage, Patrick Lencioni’s bold manifesto about the most unexploited opportunity in modern business. In his immensely readable and accessible style, Lencioni makes the case that there is no better way to achieve profound improvement in an organization than by attacking the root causes of dysfunction, politics, and confusion.

While too many leaders are still limiting their search for advantage to conventional and largely exhausted areas like marketing, strategy, and technology, Lencioni demonstrates that there is an untapped gold mine sitting right beneath them. Instead of trying to become smarter, he asserts that leaders and organizations need to shift their focus to becoming healthier, allowing them to tap into the more-than-sufficient intelligence and expertise they already have.

The author of numerous best-selling business fables including The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and Death by Meeting, Lencioni here draws upon his 20 years of writing, field research, and executive consulting to some of the world’s leading organizations. He combines real-world stories and anecdotes with practical, actionable advice to create a work that is at once a great read and an invaluable, hands-on tool. The result is, without a doubt, Lencioni’s most comprehensive, significant, and essential work to date.

    I liked the information and stories.


    What about Patrick Lencioni’s performance did you like?

    Good narration - didn't realize it was the author until now.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Didn't laugh or cry but came away feeling I wouldn't like the discomfort of these exercises.

    "Health Over Smarts"
    What made the experience of listening to The Advantage the most enjoyable?

    Lencioni describes the competitive advantage that a healthy organization provides to taking your organization to the next level. And it's a lot more fun working in a healthy company!

    He then provides a framework to implement a healthy organization. Easy to follow and to implement.

    Story
    "Lencioni Delivers"
    If you could sum up The Advantage in three words, what would they be?

    A fan of Mr. Lencioni previous business fables, I enjoyed this book written in non-fictional direct how-to style.

    Story
    "Worth the Read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As I see it, just common sense. However, too simple for this "let's make it complicated so it looks significant" world. I keep saying, "well yeah". Businesses will either hear something new or recognize what is true about what makes work life healthy, wealthy and wise.
