Patrick LencioniPatrick Lencioni, author of ten business books with nearly three million copies sold, includingThe Five Dysfunctions of a Team, opened the morning at the Global Leadership Summit. Here are my highlights from his talk.

  • “Organizational health is the single greatest competitive advantage in business.”
  • Healthy Organizations = Smart + Healthy
  • “People need to be reminded more than they need to be instructed.”
  • “If we want to change our organizations today, we have to make them healthy.”
  • “You have to build a cohesive leadership team at the top.”
  • “Every organization at its core has to know why it’s there.”
  • “A core value is something you’re willing to get punished for.”
  • “It’s not unchristian to reject a job applicant who is not a great fit.”
  • “Every decision you make is part of your strategy.”
  • “All things to all people.” = “Nothing to no one.”
  • “I wish organizational health was a standard.”
