Best-selling business author Patrick Lencioni’s handy guide, which explains the top three traits of superior team players, comes cloaked in a story that also tells you how to hire the right people and how to help them become better team players. This informative business fable flows easily and ends with strong instructions and guidelines. Lencioni has spent the past 20 years consulting with quality teams and publishing business fables. While sometimes repetitious, this tale is plausible, helpful, engaging and entertaining. Lencioni is known for packing lots of lessons into accessible corporate storytelling, and here he pitches a good one for the team. getAbstract recommends his illuminating parable to executives who recruit, manage and rely on superior teams.
