He goes on to say, “We don’t handle the truth well. In fact, we want to deal in a currency, something other than the truth.” He says that he asks people to “deal in the currency of the truth, the truth about me, the truth about you, and the truth about us.”

    The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: Hand-picked by Patrick Lencioni to Serve as an Official Interpreter.....A Leadership Fable

    In The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Patrick Lencioni once again offers a leadership fable that is as enthralling and instructive as his first two best-selling books, The Five Temptations of a CEO and The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive. This time, he turns his keen intellect and storytelling power to the fascinating, complex world of teams.

    Kathryn Petersen, Decision Tech′s CEO, faces the ultimate leadership crisis: Uniting a team in such disarray that it threatens to bring down the entire company. Will she succeed? Will she be fired? Will the company fail? Lencioni′s utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight.

    Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Just as with his other books, Lencioni has written a compelling fable with a powerful yet deceptively simple message for all those who strive to be exceptional team leaders.

    Wisdom for the BusyLeader
    written by Pat Richie

    In the year 2000 Pat Richie began sending a weekly email devotion to 30 NFL coaches and administrators called "Wisdom for the Busy SportsLeader." Each could be read in about 20 seconds. By the end of the year about 500 people from all walks of life asked to be included on the mailing list. Eventually people requested that the devotions be compiled into a book. This book is the result of those requests.

    "Wisdom for BusyLeaders" has been somewhat re-written to apply to a broader audience, although you will read much that comes from sports. Mike Holmgren says, "This book is 250 devotions, full of interesting quotes, practical wisdom, and most importantly verses from God′s Word. I try to take a few minutes each day to read this devotion and make a commitment to improve an area of my life or learn an important lesson I want to remember."

    Pat Richie is a speaker and consultant in the areas of teamwork and leadership to Fortune 500 companies, professional and college sports organizations, and government agencies. From 1981-1998 he served as team chaplain of the San Francisco Forty-Niners. Three times he was awarded Super Bowl Rings for his contributions to the team. In 1990 he was inspired to encourage NFL players to pray on the 50-yard line at the conclusion of the game. This prayer has become a tradition across football and today every NFL, major college, and many high school games end in prayer between opponents.

    Pat now works with CEO′s and executive teams building cohesion, leadership and organizational clarity to drive results, and create a more enjoyable, productive work environment. He also leads strategic discussions for companies in many fields.
