WHY SO MANY LEADERS ABDICATE THEIR MOST IMPORTANT RESPONSIBILITIES
A new kind of leadership fable that shifts our attention toward helping leaders understand the importance of why they’re leading in the first place.
New York Times bestselling 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 most compelling fable to date, Lencioni introduces readers to a pair of new characters, Shay Davis and Liam Alcott, rival leaders of two very different organizations in the same industry. With sharp dialogue and unexpected plot twists, he takes us on a journey that culminates in a resolution that is as unpredictable as it is enlightening.
Beyond the fictional story, Lencioni provides a straightforward summary of the lessons from the fable, combining a clear explanation of his theory with practical advice and a simple self-assessment. In doing so, he teaches his readers how to avoid the most dangerous temptation that derails leaders and hurts the people they are meant to serve.
