Passionate about creating great teams—and ensuring that they're properly led—Pat Lencioni shows you how to meet your everyday organizational and business challenges.

  
The Untapped Advantage of Organizational Health

Addressing the model in his cornerstone book, Pat makes the overwhelming case that organizational health “will surpass all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage.” While too many leaders are still limiting their search for advantage to conventional and largely exhausted areas like marketing, strategy and technology, Pat believes there is an untapped gold mine sitting right beneath them. Instead of trying to become smarter, he asserts that leaders and organizations need to shift their focus to becoming healthier, allowing them to tap into the more-than-sufficient intelligence and expertise they already have. He defines a healthy organization as one with minimal politics and confusion, high degrees of morale and productivity, and low turnover among good people. Drawing on his experience consulting to some of the world’s leading teams and reaffirming many of the themes cultivated in his other best-sellers, Pat reveals the four steps to achieving long-term success.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

According to Pat Lencioni, teamwork remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare. He makes the point that if you could get all the people in an organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time. Based on his runaway best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Pat uncovers the natural human tendencies that derail teams and lead to politics and confusion in so many organizations. Audience members will walk away with specific advice and practical tools for overcoming the dysfunctions and making their teams more functional and cohesive.

The Ideal Team Player

As a follow-up to The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Lencioni turns his attention to the individual team-member, revealing the three indispensable virtues—humility, hunger and people smarts—that make some people better team players than others. Pat explores the power this combination yields, and illustrates how team members with these traits drastically accelerate the process of building high-performing teams. This approach has served as the basis for hiring and evaluation at his own firm for the past two decades, and now offers an effective method for leaders to identify and cultivate true team players in any organization. Whether you’re a leader striving to bring about a culture of collaboration, a human resources professional looking to recruit real team players, or an employee who simply wants to make yourself a more valuable team-member, this talk will provide insights that can help you change your organization, or your career.

The Truth About Employee Engagement

In this talk, Pat addresses perhaps the most timeless and elusive topic related to work: job misery. He delivers a message that is as revolutionary as it is shockingly simple. He dismantles the root causes of frustration and anguish at work: anonymity, irrelevance and ‘immeasurement.’ In doing so, he provides managers at all levels with actionable advice about how they can bring fulfillment and meaning to any job in any industry. Whether you’re an executive looking to establish a sustainable competitive advantage around culture, a manager trying to engage and retain your people, or an employee who has almost given up on finding fulfillment in your work, this talk will prove immediately invaluable.
