A Leadership Fable
Andrew O’Brien hadn’t been the last person to leave the offices of Trinity Systems for the past five years. In fact, he hadn’t stayed past midnight since taking the job of CEO.
A commemorative edition of the landmark book from Patrick Lencini when it was published ten years ago, The Five Temptations of a CEO was like no other business book that came before.
Refreshingly original and utterly compelling, this razor-sharp novelette plus self-assessment (written to be read in one sitting) serves as a timeless and potent reminder that success as a leader can come down to practicing a few simple behaviors that are painfully difficult for each of us to master.
Any executive can learn how to recognize the mistakes that leaders can make and how to avoid them.
The lessons of The Five Temptations of a CEO, are as relevant today as ever, and this special anniversary edition celebrates ten years of inspiration and enlightenment with a brand new introduction and reflections from Lencioni on the new challenges in business and leadership that have occurred in the past ten years.
