Summary Description

While too many leaders are still limiting their search for competitive advantage to conventional areas like marketing, strategy, and technology, there is a gold mine just waiting to be tapped:  organizational health.  As you’ll learn in our summary of The Advantage:  Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business, by Patrick Lencioni, there is no better way to achieve profound improvement in an organization than by attacking the root causes of dysfunction, politics, and confusion.

Lencioni is the author of nine business books with over three million copies sold worldwide, including The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.  He is founder and president of The Table Group, a firm dedicated to helping leaders improve their organizations’ health since 1997.  Prior to founding The Table Group, Lencioni served on the executive team at Sybase, Inc.  He started his career at Bain & Company and later worked at Oracle Corporation. 

In The Advantage, Lencioni asserts that instead of trying to become smarter, leaders and organizations need to shift their focus to becoming healthier, allowing them to tap into the intelligence and expertise they already have. 

By embracing the four disciplines that you will learn in this summary, you can improve the health of your organization, enabling everyone who works there to be more productive, successful, and fulfilled as a result.
