Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Practical John Grisham for business geeks."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great book for anyone involved in professional services. It gets to the heart of what makes client relationships rich and fulfilling.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Getting Naked?

    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.


    What about Dan Woren’s performance did you like?

    Woren does a great job of story telling. I will look for him again.


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

    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.

    "Patrick Lencioni at his naked best!"

    To a service provider in IT, this book is invaluable. The insights to the fears that tend to govern our interactions and the methodology for dealing with them to improve our customer interactions are exceptional.
