I purchased this 10th anniversary edition of the book recently. Honestly I struggled a lttle bit with purchasing it since i have do not consider myself a CEO at all; yet , the book would share principles of management and I decided to do so anyway. Within this guide, Lencioni shares an enterprise "fable" whereby he examines the plight of a particular CEO. In the fable, this CEO comes across a "truth-speaker" (this time in a dream) who imparts to him 5 mistakes that CEOs who fail... make. These are not innate characteristics, but are temptations that, if not mastered, will surely be the demise of the business leader. The temptations are:
* Picking status over results
* Choosing popularity over accountability
* Choosing certainty over clarity
2. Choosing harmony over turmoil
* Picking invulnerability over trust
Each of the temptations drive to the center of what it is to be a head. A CEO often functions without close accountability other than to a Board or Shareholders. As such, much of his daily management must are derived from self-discipline.
While many things caught my attention in the guide, one specific observation was driven home:
inches... An excellent president of the United States wouldn't be as proud of being elected as he would of actually accomplishing something. And a nonprofit agency ought not to feel good getting money unless they did something meaningful with the money. And there isn't a great coach alive who would say that his best day was getting employed. Winning games and championships is what great coaching is all about" (p. 29).
This particular quotation reminds me that great leaders do not play it safe or consider their role as accomplishment. Their role of leadership is for a purpose every great CEO must realize that he is accountable to DO SOMETHING with the mantle of leadership that benefits the corporation he leads. "Leaders" who simply are present and entertain the people or maintain the status quo... aren't really leaders at all.
I recommend this book which author. It is a simple read and offers many opportunities for self-evaluation. It also is a sobering examination for the reader. 5 stars again Lencioni!, As an entrepreneur we often hold the funds to own a business, but we often absence the intangible tools to lead a successful business. This book directly illustrates the top 5 temptations all leaders face, but either do not acknowledge it or know it but do not know how to repair it. This guide will guide all frontrunners through understanding which temptation(s) he/she naturally fall under and why all while providing ways to work through it., This is a great book for almost any CEO, as a diagnostic platform for self-evaluation, or as a reminder of basic (but nuanced) principles that drive success. The concepts can be applied to other executive positions as well as they touch on the ways in which we unknowingly sabotage team and organizational success by focusing too heavily on everyday execution and not enough on the principles that underlie accountability and results., Don't think this is simply for CEO's. Every office manager falls into these temptations. Excellent quick read. Got me about an hours to get through it... not reading it for the next time.
The self-assessment could be revealing if people are honest., The style by which Patrick writes is a great assist to teaching/learning. Great book!, This book was a great story with a surprise ending. It's a great ready and source of inspiration and teaching for emerging frontrunners., This is simple reading with a clear and to the point message and should be required reading for all leaders.
Even though the message is simple, the work that becomes available from reading this book is some of the more difficult work of a leader. Even choosing which temptation most plagues your leadership is a painful opener. I'm desperate to support my coaching clients with this body of work!
