A Leadership Fable about destroying the barriers
that turn colleagues into competitors.
In yet another page-turning work of business fiction, best-selling author Patrick Lencioni provides readers with a powerful and thought-provoking book, this one centered around the costly and maddening challenges faced by leadership teams where silos grow in the organization and drive a culture of disfunctional politics and turf wars.  
 
The improbable hero in this story is a brand new, self-declared consultant who develops an approach, while working with his first real clients, that creates focus, buy-in, commitments, and personal accountability to deliver results -- across teams and up and down the organization.
 
Fans of Lencioni will quickly recognize his engaging writing style and move through the book quickly to glean the pearls he sprinkles throughout this work.  He advocates the development of a "Thematic Goal" supported by "Defining Objectives" to establish and drive an organization's focus. 
 
We recommend this book as required reading for the client teams we work with to help them define their goals, strategies, action plans and commitments.  However, we believe the book would be even more powerful if the story continued and addressed the challenges and processes of driving shared goals down and throughout an organization.
 
We also believe this tale will inspire those managers who have an emerging interest in becoming consultants . . . and will bring back memories for those who have moved far along the trail of an independent and entrepreneurial consultantancy.
