Summary

In his classic book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni laid out a groundbreaking approach for tackling the perilous group behaviors that destroy teamwork. Here he turns his focus to the individual, revealing the three indispensable virtues of an ideal team player.
In The Ideal Team Player, Lencioni tells the story of Jeff Shanley, a leader desperate to save his uncle's company by restoring its cultural commitment to teamwork. Jeff must crack the code on the virtues that real team players possess and then build a culture of hiring and development around those virtues. Beyond the fable, Lencioni presents a practical framework and actionable tools for identifying, hiring, and developing ideal team players.
Whether you're a leader trying to create a culture around teamwork, a staffing professional looking to hire real team players, or a team player wanting to improve yourself, this book will prove to be as useful as it is compelling.

Lot of talk about a simple concept

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Sure, but the guy reading the book was terrible, almost put me to sleep several times. I would buy the book not the audible version. Go to the end and simply read the overview. If you have read a lot of Patricks stuff then this is repeated material on some levels. I do love Pats stuff so don't think I'm down on him, not at all, just that it is repeating material.

Has The Ideal Team Player turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen Hoye?

Whoever it was that narrated "The hard thing about hard things" by Ben Horowitz, THAT was a great book and well narrated. Also, Steve Jobs narrator.

Did The Ideal Team Player inspire you to do anything?

Perhaps, but not much.
