No notes for slide. PDF The Advantage: Is it superior strategy? Faster innovation? No, New York Times best-selling author, PatrickLencioni, argues that the seminal difference between successfulcompanies and mediocre ones has little to do with what they knowand how smart they are and more to do with how healthy they are.
Inthis book, Lencioni brings together his vast experience and many ofthe themes cultivated in his other best-selling books and deliversa first: You just clipped your first slide! Commitment clarification: The process that takes place at the end of a meeting during which the team explicitly describes and settles on the agreements and decisions that have been made so that there is no room for ambiguity in what they subsequently do and say.
Conflict continuum: The spectrum depicting the full range of conflict in an organization, from artificial harmony zero conflict to aggressive and destructive politics extreme conflict.
At the middle of the continuum is the point where conflict changes from constructive and ideological to destructive and personal. Conflict norm: Rules of engagement for dealing with conflict within the team.
Having clear standards of behavior allows a team to focus on the discussion of issues without having to slow down to think about what is and is not appropriate.
Core purpose: An idealistic description of why an organization exists. Core values: A set of values two or three that is simply inherent in an organization. They lie at the heart of the organization's identity, do not change over time, and must already exist. Defining objectives: The general categories of activity that are required in order to achieve the thematic goal.
Like the thematic goal, defining objectives must be qualitative, temporary, and shared by the team.
Disagree and commit: The ability of team members to hold different opinions about an issue or decision and still actively support whatever final decision is made by the leader or the team as a whole. Enter the danger: The act of stepping squarely into the middle of a difficult issue. Leaders who overcome their need to avoid uncomfortable situations and enter the danger often defuse a potentially harmful issue and achieve quicker resolution. Fundamental attribution error: The tendency to falsely attribute the negative behaviors of others to their character an internal attribution , while attributing one's own negative behaviors to environmental factors an external attribution.
The fundamental attribution error often creates misunderstanding and distrust among team members. By getting to know one another better and understanding personal histories and personality tendencies, team members can often avoid this problem. Leadership team: A small group of people who are collectively responsible for achieving a common objective for their organization.
Lightning round: The activity at the beginning of a meeting during which team members take thirty seconds to report on their key priorities for the week. Meeting stew: The idea of combining administrative issues, tactical decisions, creative brain-storming and strategic analysis, and personnel discussions into one meeting.
Mining for conflict: A facilitation skill that requires an individual to extract buried disagreements within a team and bring them to the surface.
Organizational health: An organization has integrity - is healthy - when it is whole, consistent and complete, when its management, operations, strategy and culture fit together and make sense.
The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni
Peer-to-peer accountability: The act of team members' calling one another on behavioral or performance-related shortcomings.
Permission-to-play values: The minimum behavioral standards that are required in an organization. A few years later I started working, as a busboy in high school and a bank teller in college, and I had my first real glimpse of management.
After graduating from college, I went to work for a management consulting firm and thought I was finally going to figure out this management thing. To be fair, the firm taught me quite a bit about strategy and finance and marketing, but not much about organizations and how they should be run as a whole.
But somehow I became convinced that the biggest problem our clients faced, and their biggest opportunity for competitive advantage, was not really about strategy or finance or marketing; it was something a little less tangible—something that seemed to revolve around the way they managed their organizations.
When I suggested that we look into that, my superiors politely informed me that this was not something our firm did for a living, which was ironic because we were a management consulting firm. But I had been hooked and decided I needed to change the focus of my career.
I spent the next few years working in corporate America in the world of organizational behavior or development or psychology—whatever you want to call it.Inthis book, Lencioni brings together his vast experience and many ofthe themes cultivated in his other best-selling books and deliversa first: Is it superior strategy?
Take this summary with you and read anywhere! Administrative or daily check-ins: A gathering once a day, for no more than ten minutes, to clear the air about anything administrative that would be helpful to know.
Demand for those books, and for our integrated approach to implementing the concepts in them, far exceeded our expectations again, and I started to become convinced that we had found that missing something—that advantage—I had been searching for throughout my career.
But as Jim Collins, the research giant, once told me, qualitative field research is just as reliable as the quantitative kind, as long as clients and readers attest to its validity.
Healthy organizations outperform their counterparts, are free of politics and confusion and provide an environment where star performers never want to leave.
When I suggested that we look into that, my superiors politely informed me that this was not something our firm did for a living, which was ironic because we were a management consulting firm.
