Book Insights: The Advantage

The AdvantageBook Insights: The Advantage

A couple of years ago, our executive team read ‘The Advantage’ by Patrick Lencioni. The book is rich with insights and guiding ideas for any team or organization. Here are a few of the key takeaways.

Question 1: Why do we exist?
Employees in every organization, and at every level, need to know that at the heart of what they do lies something grand and aspirational.

Question 2: How do we behave?
If an organization is tolerant of everything, it will stand for nothing.

Question 3: What do we do?
a simple, one-sentence definition, something your grandmother can understand (no offense to grandmas).

Question 4: How will we succeed?
An organization’s strategy is nothing more than the collection of intentional decisions a company makes to give itself the best chance to thrive and differentiate from competitors.

Question 5: What is most important, right now?
Every organization if it wants to create a sense of alignment and focus, must have a single top priority within a given period of time.

Question 6: Who must do what?
Without clarity around division of labor, the potential for politics and infighting, even among well-intentioned people, is great.
