The Advantage (Jossey-Bass, 2012)
Patrick Lencioni’s book, The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business, is a departure from his typical style of writing. His past books were written in the form of a story, or a leadership fable. In this book, Lencioni summarizes his major lessons, themes, and tools found in his previous works.
The subtitle indicates the main theme of The Advantage: organizational health. He describes how this is broader than organizational culture. He breaks the book down to five sections, the first four of which make up the Four Disciplines Model: Build a Cohesive Leadership Team, Create Clarity, Overcommunicate Clarity, Reinforce Clarity, and The Centrality of Great Meetings.
Lencioni’s book is an easy read and is filled with key takeaways.
