The Art of Leadership in Business with Patrick Lencioni

Company culture might conjure silly images of bag chairs and free lunch to some, but company culture is much more than hip amenities and it can break an organization if it’s dysfunctional - so what is a dysfunctional company culture, how do you risk losing your best talent unless you improve it, and is any company too big or too old to change its ways?

What to Listen For

  • What two areas of business do you need in order to successfully run a business?
  • What are the 5 dysfunctions of management and what can you do to overcome them to build a world-class company culture people want to work with? 
  • Why is a willingness to be vulnerable and admit when you don’t know something important to developing a healthy company culture?
  • Is conflict avoidance a good or bad thing in the workplace, and how should you approach disagreements and potential arguments?
  • What does it mean to be trustworthy in a business environment and how can you identify someone who isn’t trustworthy before their failure becomes your failure?
  • What should you do after realizing you are bringing dysfunctional behavior to an organization?
  • What exercises can you do to build trust within your organization, regardless of whether you’re in management or not?
  • What is the number one job killer for an individual within a business organization and what can you do to solve it without spending a dime?
  • What three things do people need at work to love going to work every day and how can you provide those three things without 
  • Why is efficiency overrated and effectiveness underrated, and how can a drive for efficiency push out all the people who matter to your organization?
  • What 3 qualities do you need to be a great team player, and why can missing just one of them lead to a disaster?

Company culture is not about giving your employees more benefits, amenities, or unlimited vacation. Among other things, it is about trusting the people you work with, supporting open and honest communication, recognizing the contributions of others, and leadership/management that embodies healthy conflict resolution and leading by example. Without those things clearly communicated and reinforced from the top down, it’s only a matter of time before people get hired that do not believe in the same ideas, which leads to an organization where managers and leadership taking credit for their teams, people feeling isolated and unappreciated, and everyone looking out for themselves rather than the collective good.

Episode #352: Patrick Lencioni - The Five Key Actions Of Excellent Leaders


  • Leaders who sustain excellence =
    • Humility - They don't feel they are more important than others, but they realize that their words and actions carry more weight.
  • "Leadership is a privilege... It's about serving others. A lot of leaders lead because they think it looks cool."
  • "Leadership has to be about what you can give, not what you can get."
  • Exploring the two leadership motives:
    • Reward-centered leadership: the belief that being a leader is the reward for hard work, and therefore, that the experience of being a leader should be pleasant and enjoyable, avoiding anything mundane, unpleasant or uncomfortable.
    • Responsibility-centered leadership: the belief that being a leader is a responsibility, and therefore that the experience of leading should be difficult and challenging (though certainly not without elements of personal gratification).
  • One of the questions to ask yourself:
    • “How do you see your job in terms of verbs?” — what do you do to really help the business?
  • The leader must be a constant, incessant reminder of the company’s purpose, strategy, values, & priorities.  You’re not only the CEO, you’re the CRO.” Chief Reminding Officer
  • The actions of great leaders:
    • Running great meetings
    • Managing the executive team
    • Managing the executives as individuals
    • Having difficult conversations with people
    • Constantly communicating and repeating key messages to employees
  • "The CEO should have the most painful job in the company."
  • For the mid-level manager -- "Am I waking up with the right rationale to do this job?"
  • Love is a verb:
    • Time
    • Affection
    • Discipline
  • "Leadership is not a noun, it's a verb."
  • Running great meetings:
    • "Meetings are the central activity of leadership.  Bad leaders have other people run their meetings."
      • Good meetings have debate and conflict.  People are able to be passionate without consequence.  The leader prioritizes what will be talked about.
  • CEO's are responsible to build teams.  Your job is to build teams based on trust
  • When receiving a message from a cynical leader who says "You don't understand."  Our response? "No, we're not going to be that way.  The ones who do the hard work change the world."
  • Micro-managing vs. Accountability:
    • "There is an abdication of management.  You should know what your team is doing."
  • Parenting: "The great news about being a parent is it's humbling."
  • The leader must be the chief reminding officer:
    • "Constant, incessant, reminder of the company's purpose, strategy, values, and priorities. You must over-communicate."
  • Marriage advice:
    • "Be completely humble, vulnerable, especially in front of the kids.  Engage in healthy conflict.  When people can't argue, that's a problem."
