Management consultant and author Patrick Lencioni, known for his popular business fables, steps into straight exposition to explain how to handle complex business problems by building organizational health and relying on common-sense solutions. Yet few organizations practice what Lencioni preaches. Companies generally focus on traditional business areas rather than digging into the nitty-gritty of developing what Lencioni calls a “healthy organization.” He offers a step-by-step prescription – based on familiar nostrums – for improving corporate health. getAbstract recommends his casual, basic and accessible advice to new business leaders who want to build an effective organizational framework.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why organizational health matters more than “strategy, marketing, finance and technology”;
- Why healthy companies prioritize “cohesive leadership,” clarity and a “core purpose;” and
- How to build trust, commitment, accountability and alignment by asking six crucial questions and heeding the answers.
