Review

Consulting executive Lencioni (The Five Dysfunctions of a Team) has an answer for floundering businesses aim for organizational health. In other words, businesses that are whole, consistent, and complete, with complementary management, operations, strategy, and culture. Today, the vast majority of organizations have more than enough intelligence, experience, and knowledge to be successful. Organizational health is neither sexy nor quantifiable, which is why more people don′t take advantage. However, improved health will not only create a competitive advantage and better bottom line, it will boost morale. Lencioni covers four steps to health: build a cohesive leadership team, create clarity, overcommunicate clarity, and reinforce clarity. Through examples of his own experiences and others′, he addresses the behaviors of a cohesive team, peer–to–peer accountability, office politics and bureaucracy and strategy, and how all organizations should strive to make people′s lives better. This smart, pithy, and practical guide is a must–read for executives and other businesspeople who need to get their proverbial ducks back in a row. (Apr.) ( Publishers Weekly, 1/16/12)

′Something in it for everyone a lot of value in it (Alan Jordon, Sales Director of Bookbuzz)

The book contains a wealth of practical yet profound advice that would be of benefit to any HR or organisational professional. (HR Zone, September 2012)

geared mainly at leader s, I believe it is applicable to any medium sized to large organisation.
(Professional Manager, November 2012)

Product Description

There is a competitive advantage out there, arguably more powerful than any other. Is it superior strategy? Faster innovation? Smarter employees? No, New York Times best-selling author, Patrick Lencioni, argues that the seminal difference between successful companies and mediocre ones has little to do with what they know and how smart they are and more to do with how healthy they are. In this book, Lencioni brings together his vast experience and many of the themes cultivated in his other best-selling books and delivers a first: a cohesive and comprehensive exploration of the unique advantage organizational health provides.

Simply put, an organization is healthy when it is whole, consistent and complete, when its management, operations and culture are unified.  Healthy organizations outperform their counterparts, are free of politics and confusion and provide an environment where star performers never want to leave. Lencioni’s first non-fiction book provides leaders with a groundbreaking, approachable model for achieving organizational health—complete with stories, tips and anecdotes from his experiences consulting to some of the nation’s leading organizations. In this age of informational ubiquity and nano-second change, it is no longer enough to build a competitive advantage based on intelligence alone. The Advantage provides a foundational construct for conducting business in a new way—one that maximizes human potential and aligns the organization around a common set of principles.
