Based on the principles in Getting Naked, Pat Lencioni presents a revolutionary and counterintuitive approach to client service that yields uncommon levels of trust and loyalty. "Naked Service", as Lencioni calls it, provokes consultants and service providers to be completely transparent and vulnerable with clients and to avoid the three fears that ultimately sabotage client allegiance. Learn principles like 'enter the danger,' 'tell the kind truth,' and 'always consult instead of sell' that can help you establish a fiercely loyal client base. No matter who the audience, they will certainly glean some powerful tools for overcoming the three fears, and gain a real and lasting competitive edge.
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
Lencioni uncovers the natural tendencies that derail teams and lead to confusion in so many organizations - and then delivers practical tools for creating functioning, cohesive teams. If you could get all the people in your company going in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, against any competition, at any time.
The Three Signs of a Miserable Job
With banter and touching anecdotes, Lencioni dismantles the root causes of job dissatisfaction (anonymity, irrelevance and immeasurability) and gives both managers and employees the actionable advice on how they can bring fulfillment and meaning to their jobs.
Getting Naked: Shedding The Three Fears That Sabotage Client Loyalty
