Destroying the Barriers that Turn Colleagues into Competitors
As with his other books, Lencioni wrote Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars as a fictional — but eerily realistic — story. The story is about Jude Cousins, 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.
In this Soundview audio conference, Patrick Lencioni will address the costly and maddening issue of silos, the barriers that create organizational politics. Silos devastate organizations, kill productivity, push good people out the door, and jeopardize the achievement of corporate goals.
The MP3 recording and slides from this event as well as a book summary for Silos, Politics and Turf Wars will be available to listen to or download from your Online Library immediately after check-out.
