The Five Temptations of a CEO by Patrick LencioniSummary

Any executive can learn how to:

  • recognise the mistakes that leaders can make
  • avoid errors before they occur
  • and much more!

Refreshingly original and utterly compelling, the story of this executive (written to be read in one sitting) will be enjoyed, remembered and reread for years to come. It serves a timeless and potent reminder that success as a leader can come down to practising a few simple behaviours – behaviours that are painfully difficult for each of us to master.

Lencioni delivers a provocative message: CEOs mainly have themselves to blame when things go wrong. If you’re a CEO (or any manager for that matter), do you have the courage to face the blame? Doing so could change your future – for the better.

You won’t find any dry management rhetoric in this razor-sharp novelette.
