I have read a number of Patrick Lencioni's books. This one, too, does not disappoint. I read a lot of business writing and Lencioni again does well to help us grasp new habits that could be complex if we were left to decipher them ourselves.
This book takes us through a family's trek to discern their own family values (using the 3 q's), and as a product of that, they are able to develop their own priority statements, which they use to develop short term goals while maintaining crucial priorities.
I initially picked up this title because it promised to answer the questions my wife and I have debated for so long. My wife has come out of it even more enthusiastic than I!
This was time well spent. My wife and I are already using it to define our own value and family priority statements.
My wife and I listened to this on a recent trip back from KC to Dallas. She said the life of the wife was spot on. She ordered the book from Amazon and we're going to give this approach of family planning a try to put some agreed priorities in our lives.
The examples in the book are extremely authentic. It was like narrating every day activities for my family. Sound practical solutions and, in many ways, fresh look at how to inject more success in family life. The narrator is a weak point.
I started listening to this, then stopped and started it over so both my wife and I could listen. We loved the principles and ideas presented. This is very doable for any family, and is recommended for any family, whether they are frantic or not.
The story format of the book was great
I don't think I have one to compare with. this one was unique!
Easy to follow voices for the characters
Yes. It would be great to continue to read how others apply the advise.
I wanted so badly to enjoy this book and get the leadership principles from it. The "fable" completely takes over and you are left with 90% story and 10% content. I could not even finish it. Very sad.
