By Patrick M. LencioniThis is a leadership fable about destroying the barriers that turn colleagues into competitors. The author addresses the costly and maddening issue of silos, the barriers that create organizational politics. Silos devastate organizations, kill productivity, push good people out of the door, and jeopardize the achievement of corporate goals. The book tells a fictional, but eerily realistic story about an eager young management consultant struggling to launch his practice by solving one of the more universal and frustrating problems faced by his clients. Through trial and error, he develops a simple yet ground-breaking approach for helping them transform confusion and infighting into clarity and alignment.
