The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive: The Four Disciplines at the Heart of Making Any Organization World Class Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As CEO, most everything that Rich O'Connor did had something to do with at least one of the four disciplines on his famed "yellow sheet." Some of the firm's executives joked that he was obsessed with it.

Interestingly, only a handful of people actually knew what was on that sheet, and so it remained something of a mystery. Which was okay with Rich, because no one really needed to understand it, other than him.

He certainly never suspected that it would become the blueprint of an employee's plan to destroy the firm.

In this stunning follow-up to his best-selling book, The Five Temptations of a CEO, Patrick Lencioni offers up another leadership fable that's every bit as compelling and illuminating as its predecessor.

This time, Lencioni's focus is on a leader's crucial role in building a healthy organization--an often overlooked but essential element of business life that is the linchpin of sustained success.

Readers are treated to a story of corporate intrigue as Rich O'Connor, fictional CEO of technology consulting company Telegraph Partners, faces a leadership challenge so great that it that threatens to topple his company, his career and everything he holds true about what makes a leader.

In the story's telling, Lencioni deftly helps his readers understand the disarming simplicity and power of creating a healthy organization, and reveals four key disciplines that they can follow to achieve it.

Once again, Lencioni delivers an utterly gripping tale with a powerful and memorable message for all who strive to be extraordinary leaders.

Book News Annotation:

Lencioni (a private consultant) presents a fable of leadership focusing on the leader's crucial role in building a healthy organization. With the story of a fictional CEO, Lencioni illustrates four key disciplines to leadership. These disciplines are: building and maintaining a cohesive leadership team, creating organizational clarity, over-communicating organizational clarity, and reinforce organizational clarity through human systems. The final chapter offers instructions on putting these principles into practice. No index.
