From the book:
The Ideal Team Player
How to recognize and cultivate the three essential virtues
By: PATRICK LENCIONI
In The Ideal Team Player, Lencioni cracks the nut – virtues, an ideal team player must possess through a short tale. He begins with Jeff Shanley, who takes in-charge of his uncle – Bob’s company to continue his business with success, committing to its traditional teamwork approach. He, along with his companions – Bobby and Clare, figure out the virtues of a team player, to hire new employees for their upcoming project.
Not extending the tale too much, no sooner Jeff figures out the virtues after some trial, Lencioni cut shorts the tale and starts suggesting a load of practical guidance for identifying, hiring and developing real ideal team players. This makes this book compelling to improve self and organization where you live!
