Contents The Fable -- The Model: A Summary of Why Executives Fail -- Self-Assessment
Summary In this business fiction debut, Patrick Lencioni delivers a powerful wake-up call to all of us who dare to lead. Young, ambitious, and overwhelmed, Andrew O'Brien personifies a part of every leader as he wanders in search of the elusive silver bullet that will propel him to success. He happens upon an unlikely guide who distills the seemingly infinite list of leadership perils into the five temptations of a CEO. In an intense and often combative exchange, the two debate fundamental issues faced by all leaders - issues involving personal integrity and effectiveness in the ongoing struggle for success. While some of these topics have been bandied about in the leadership literature for years, in The Five Temptations of a CEO they actually begin to make sense
