In The Ideal Team Player, Lencioni tells the story of Jeff Shanley, a leader desperate to save his uncle's company by restoring its cultural commitment to teamwork. Jeff must crack the code on the virtues that real team players possess and then build a culture of hiring and development around those virtues. Beyond the fable, Lencioni presents a practical framework and actionable tools for identifying, hiring, and developing ideal team players.

Loved that the majority of this book was in a story format. It made the content very digestible and easy to relate to.

A book with interesting points and information. I was overly distracted by the narrators voice. Forcing me to have to rewind over and over. Would recommend The Untethered Soul.

It started out great had a lull in the middle, and ended really strong. Ready to live life without judgment. Okay great read even for someone who is not religious, like myself. Good unbiased guidance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no, I had times I wanted to stop at because of the language used. Great book but a little tough in some of the spots describing the rebellions.

Any additional comments?

I would totally listen to it 3 or 4 times.

Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

the pitch and volume of the narrator varied so much that sometimes you could not hear him — if you turned the volume up, other parts would be much too loud

Any additional comments?

the musical sound under the narrator's voice, at the start of a section, was distracting
