The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive

Posted & filed under Book Reviews, Web.

by Patrick Lencioni

Are you a fan of leadership fables – those simplistic books that tell a story to help you become a better manager? Then you better get this book. Even if you aren’t a fan, this book is still a good read.

It’s about two CEOs of firms in the same industry. One worries about the competition, and the other just works on making his organization as strong as it can be. When an employee defects from the organization-focused company and spills the beans, the competitor worrier can’t even take advantage of the information because it is so foreign to his (this is a story of two men) way of operating.

If you don’t want to read the book, but want to know the obsessions, no problem. Here they are:

1. Build and maintain a cohesive leadership team

2. Create organizational clarity

3. Overcommunicate organizational clarity

4. Reinforce organizations clarity through human systems

But just knowing them isn’t enough, is it?
