Description

Shay was still angry but shrugged nonchalantly as if to say, it's not that big of a deal. 

"So, what am I wrong about?" 

"You're not going to want to hear this, but I have to tell you anyway." Liam paused before finishing. "You might be working hard, but you're not doing it for the company." 

"What the hell does that mean?" Shay wanted to know. Knowing that his adversary might punch him for what he was about to say, Liam responded. "You're doing it for yourself." 

New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni has written a dozen books that focus on how leaders can build teams and lead organizations. In The Motive, he shifts his attention toward helping them understand the importance of why they're leading in the first place. 

In what may be his edgiest pause-resister to date, Lencioni thrusts his listeners into a day-long conversation between rival CEOs. Shay Davis is the CEO of Golden Gate Alarm, who, after just a year in his role, is beginning to worry about his job and is desperate to figure out how to turn things around. With nowhere else to turn, Shay receives some hard-to-swallow advice from the most unlikely and unwanted source - Liam Alcott, CEO of a more successful security company and his most hated opponent. 

Lencioni uses unexpected plot twists and crisp dialogue to take us on a journey that culminates in a resolution that is as unexpected as it is enlightening. As he does in his other books, he then provides a straightforward summary of the lessons from the fable, combining a clear explanation of his theory with practical advice to help executives examine their true motivation for leading. In addition to provoking listeners to honestly assess themselves, Lencioni presents action steps for changing their approach in five key areas. In doing so, he helps leaders avoid the pitfalls that stifle their organizations and even hurt the people they are meant to serve.

Very short but still too long

The idea could've been summarized just fine in 10 minutes of audio.

The only valid form of leadership is servant leadership. Leadership is hard and should not be taken on as a reward for climbing the proverbial ladder. Some signs that you're not being a good leader is that you neglect keeping high standards for interpersonal behavior, you focus mainly on what you enjoy and are good at, and you choose not to remind employees frequently of the mission and the standards.

The book expands on those ideas a little, but not much. Really, just ask yourself, why do you want to be CEO (or manager, or coach, etc)?

Great book to listen to

This book was suggested to me by my mentor and it's been an eye opener. I like the story that is told in the first part of the book because it really resonated with me and the analytical part later. I would say this is a must for all leaders.

Challenges your motives. Worth the read.

A short read but packs an emotional punch. If you don't think you need it, you probably do.

Another Gem

A true gut check for any leader. Thank you Patrick for the clarity! The only minor grievance I have with the book is that you did not narrate it yourself.

Great book and just what my leadership needs.

I am working for a company where this is needed. Not only for management but also my department leadership team. The fable is good but the description & advice about reward & responsibility based leadership should be reviewed with any supervisor, manager, executive member & CEO. Do you really want & be happy as a Responsibilty-centered leader?

lacking depth

I have listened to many of his books, and I am a fan of teaching with stories, so I assumed I would love this book. Unfortunately, I found it lacking depth. The story didn't have enough detail to provide any real benefit.

it felt like an outline of a book that was rushed to print.

Lencioni’s best work to date

I have read most of Patrick Lencioni’s work. I’ve used “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” for many of my presentations to clients and within my own teams. I was curious about “The Motive” because I knew there would be a moment of self awareness and self reflection for me although I wasn’t sure I was ready for that. This book is short and sweet but very powerful when trying to understand your role as a leader and what motivates you to assume that role. It’s not as easy as establishing your alignment with rewards vs responsibility because over time they can shift. It is important to constant examine your actions as a leader and how you are motivated by the work as well as how you motivate your team.

Great stories drive home the lessons

Very profound and searching. Perhaps more important to internalize than any "how to" book on leadership.

Yes yes yes!!

This book is an amazing depiction of how leaders tend to abdicate their roles for things that they think are fun but less important. A must read for anyone in leadership or those who are under a leader.

Love these leadership fables. Always great!

This is a quick and easy read, with most completing it in just under 3 hours. I am impressed at how powerful the concept proposed is and how impactful the small book can be.

Why are you leading?

This is such a great book for anyone in a leadership position, because it requires you to assess why you are doing what you were doing. It is a quick easy book with practical advice to digest.
