In this age of informational ubiquity and nano-second change, it is no longer enough to build a competitive advantage based on intelligence alone.

This text brings together all of the themes of Patrick Lencioni’s other bestselling books into a cohesive and comprehensive exploration of organizational health – what it means for an organization to be ‘healthy’, why it is critical for success, and how to get there.

Reviews
Consulting executive Lencioni (The Five Dysfunctions of a Team) has an answer for floundering businesses-aim for organizational health. In other words, businesses that are whole, consistent, and complete, with complementary management, operations, strategy, and culture. Today, the vast majority of organizations have more than enough intelligence, experience, and knowledge to be successful. Organizational health is neither sexy nor quantifiable, which is why more people don’t take advantage. However, improved health will not only create a competitive advantage and better bottom line, it will boost morale. Lencioni covers four steps to health: build a cohesive leadership team, create clarity, overcommunicate clarity, and reinforce clarity. Through examples of his own experiences and others’, he addresses the behaviors of a cohesive team, peer-to-peer accountability, office politics and bureaucracy and strategy, and how all organizations should strive to make people’s lives better. This smart, pithy, and practical guide is a must-read for executives and other businesspeople who need to get their proverbial ducks back in a row. (Apr.)
