2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rodge TOP 50 REVIEWER on June 11 2012
Format: Hardcover
After reading so many business books, you often feel that, while the advice is good, most of the valuable stuff was simply common sense. This book is no exception. However, I've come to conclusion that much may be common sense, but that doesn't make for common practice. Therefore, we all need frameworks for taking our knowledge of how to do our part in building good organizations, and putting that knowledge properly into practice.

One not-so-common sense approach that Lencioni advocates early on is developing healthy conflict within the leadership team. After first fostering trust so that leadership partners can be vulnerable with each other, it is important to encourage constructive debate, to point where teams can cross the line into inappropriate conflict, pull back and still come out healthy at the other end. Its not often that you find a good framework for developing healthy disagreement that actually gives clear guidance, but Lencioni does here.

This book is refreshingly clear of leadership manual cliches. The author even apologizes at one point for talking about "empowerment".

The book uses a 4 discipline framework to establish a healthy organization: Build a Cohesive Leadership Team, Create Clarity, Overcommunicate Clarity and Reinforce Clarity.

I took copious notes while reading this book. Highly recommended.

Stated as being a simple approach...but not so simple. For business leaders who truly want to create an organization that is productive with people who are performing and happy. Step away from ego and control, and build an iconic workplace.

One of the best books a leadership team could read. Organizational health trumps everything. Patrick Lencioni does an incredible job moving between the practical and theoretical and showing a team how to create organizational health in a doable way. A book to not only study, but to implement. I'll come back to this one every year for many years.

This is a very useful book when working with business owners or management teams. Encompasses a lot of material found in other Lencioni books but good to have in one place.

The world will always need large organizations, be it banks, charities or manufacturing – they will ALWAYS exist. And they need help to get healthy again. Forget the hippy definition of 'healthy', you know the toxic, unproductive, absenteeism-riddled result of unhealthy organizations; we've all worked in one.

Core culture change, better meetings, clear staff communication and a big chapter on hiring for fit are just some of the big wins this book really hits out of the park.

If you lead or manage a team in a large organization, THIS book will help you rock 2013.
