The Advantage

“The single greatest advantage any company can achieve is organizational health.  Yet it is ignored by most leaders even though it is simple, free, and available to anyone who wants it.”

– – Patrick Lencioni

In The Advantage author Patrick Lencioni makes a compelling case about “why organizational health trumps everything else in business.”  If you have ever worked in a company or organization that posts Mission Statements and Vision Statements that are generally panned by the staff you may not want to read this book.  If you are like me it will make you long for an organization that does even 10 percent of the activities that Lencioni suggests.  As usual he also sprinkles real-life anecdotes into his sections to make a point.
