The Ideal Team Player

Patrick Lencioni is one of my favorite leadership authors writing books like The Advantage and The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team. His latest book, The Ideal Team Player, is focused on “how to recognize and cultivate the three essential virtues.” As always, he starts with a fable and then goes into more detail.

Here are the three virtues and descriptions from the book:

  1. Humility – Humility isn’t thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.
  2. Hunger – Hungry people are always looking for more.
  3. People smarts – A person’s common sense about people…the ability to be interpersonally appropriate and aware.

Looking to improve your leadership skills and build a better organization? Start by reading Lencioni’s books.
