Description

Shay was still angry but shrugged nonchalantly as if to say, it's not that big of a deal. 

"So, what am I wrong about?" 

"You're not going to want to hear this, but I have to tell you anyway." Liam paused before finishing. "You might be working hard, but you're not doing it for the company." 

"What the hell does that mean?" Shay wanted to know. Knowing that his adversary might punch him for what he was about to say, Liam responded. "You're doing it for yourself." 

New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni has written a dozen books that focus on how leaders can build teams and lead organizations. In The Motive, he shifts his attention toward helping them understand the importance of why they're leading in the first place. 

In what may be his edgiest pause-resister to date, Lencioni thrusts his listeners into a day-long conversation between rival CEOs. Shay Davis is the CEO of Golden Gate Alarm, who, after just a year in his role, is beginning to worry about his job and is desperate to figure out how to turn things around. With nowhere else to turn, Shay receives some hard-to-swallow advice from the most unlikely and unwanted source - Liam Alcott, CEO of a more successful security company and his most hated opponent. 

Lencioni uses unexpected plot twists and crisp dialogue to take us on a journey that culminates in a resolution that is as unexpected as it is enlightening. As he does in his other books, he then provides a straightforward summary of the lessons from the fable, combining a clear explanation of his theory with practical advice to help executives examine their true motivation for leading. In addition to provoking listeners to honestly assess themselves, Lencioni presents action steps for changing their approach in five key areas. In doing so, he helps leaders avoid the pitfalls that stifle their organizations and even hurt the people they are meant to serve.

Love these leadership fables. Always great!

This is a quick and easy read, with most completing it in just under 3 hours. I am impressed at how powerful the concept proposed is and how impactful the small book can be.

Great stories drive home the lessons

Very profound and searching. Perhaps more important to internalize than any "how to" book on leadership.

Yes yes yes!!

This book is an amazing depiction of how leaders tend to abdicate their roles for things that they think are fun but less important. A must read for anyone in leadership or those who are under a leader.

Lencioni’s best work to date

I have read most of Patrick Lencioni’s work. I’ve used “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” for many of my presentations to clients and within my own teams. I was curious about “The Motive” because I knew there would be a moment of self awareness and self reflection for me although I wasn’t sure I was ready for that. This book is short and sweet but very powerful when trying to understand your role as a leader and what motivates you to assume that role. It’s not as easy as establishing your alignment with rewards vs responsibility because over time they can shift. It is important to constant examine your actions as a leader and how you are motivated by the work as well as how you motivate your team.

Easy listen with great points!

So many times leadership (and most nonfiction...) books are hard for me to get through. Patrick’s writing style is refreshing and kept me interested. Great techniques you can instantly put into action! Can’t wait to get through more of his books!

Good starter book

The Motive is a good starting point for those who have not really spent much time in this genre. Good reminder of things leaders should know or be reminded of from time to time. Well worth a credit.

Excellent Read!

I love his use of a narrative in the beginning to drive home his lessons of leadership in the latter chapters. Quick and easy read while tremendously informative.

The must read for any leader who wants to grow themselves and their companies.

I have read all of Patrick Lencioni’s book and this one is by far the best and should be the first read. If you are willing to grow as this book recommends, then follow up with all his other books for the template to grow not only yourself but most importantly your team and their teams.
