The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business

    By Patrick M Lencioni

From the Publisher:
There is a competitive advantage out there, arguably more powerful than any other. Is it superior strategy? Faster innovation? Smarter employees? No, New York Times best-selling author, Patrick Lencioni, argues that the seminal difference between successful companies and mediocre ones has little to do with what they know and how smart they are and more to do with how healthy they are. In this book, Lencioni brings together his vast experience and many of the themes cultivated in his other best-selling books and delivers a first: a cohesive and comprehensive exploration of the unique advantage organizational health provides.
Simply put, an organization is healthy when it is whole, consistent and complete, when its management, operations and culture are unified. Healthy organizations outperform their counterparts, are free of politics and confusion and provide an environment where star performers never want to leave. Lencioni's first non-fiction book provides leaders with a groundbreaking, approachable model for achieving organizational health--complete with stories, tips and anecdotes from his experiences consulting to some of the nation's leading organizations. In this age of informational ubiquity and nano-second change, it is no longer enough to build a competitive advantage based on intelligence alone. The Advantage provides a foundational construct for conducting business in a new way--one that maximizes human potential and aligns the organization around common set of principles.

NEWS & OPINION: The Clarity Principle

Posted June 7, 2013, 5:06 PM with category of Leadership & Management
The Clarity Principle couldn't have landed on my desk at a better time. We've been discussing a new "mission statement" for 800-CEO-READ, one that reflects our purpose as well as the product. This book gives us plenty of guidance as The Clarity Principle aims to "illuminate how difficult it is to define your business, the costs you incur when you fail to clarify your purpose, and the tremendous gains to be won by succeeding in that effort.
