The Ideal Team Player : Key points

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.
