The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive

The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive: A Leadership FableThe Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive: A Leadership Fable
by Patrick Lencioni

This is the stunning follow-up to the author’s best-selling book, The Five Temptations of a CEO. You’ll certainly enjoy the author’s profound insights and the simplicity of his theories. According to Lencioni, there are truly only four things that should keep you, as a leader, up at night in order to sustain a successful organization. The rest can and should be delegated to your able team. 

This book is a very quick read that still manages to hit you right between the eyes with a one-two punch of reality and hope. I don’t know how he does it, but the author has a knack for story-telling that will convince you that he knows your organization and your people as well as you do … maybe even better. The good news is that he articulates a straight-forward prescription for a better functioning organization. This is a powerful model for any organization, large or small.
