The Ideal Team Player How to Recognize and Cultivate The Three Essential Virtues (J-B Lencioni Series)

(10 customer reviews)

In his classic book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni laid out a groundbreaking approach for tackling the perilous group behaviors that destroy teamwork. Here he turns his focus to the individual, revealing the three indispensable virtues of an ideal team player.

In The Ideal Team Player, Lencioni tells the story of Jeff Shanley, a leader desperate to save his uncle’s company by restoring its cultural commitment to teamwork. Jeff must crack the code on the virtues that real team players possess, and then build a culture of hiring and development around those virtues. 

Beyond the fable, Lencioni presents a practical framework and actionable tools for identifying, hiring, and developing ideal team players.  Whether you’re a leader trying to create a culture around teamwork, a staffing professional looking to hire real team players, or a team player wanting to improve yourself, this book will prove to be as useful as it is compelling.

10 thoughts on “The Ideal Team Player How to Recognize and Cultivate The Three Essential Virtues (J-B Lencioni Series)

  1. Love it, must read for anyone, most value for Middle level managers or higher!Gives great insights and tools to manage teams

  2. Essential reading to anyone who wants to build good teams – you may intuitively know what makes a good team player but this book sets it out so it is much easily to understand and implement. Also deals with the sticky problem of those who aren’t so good – and who is? I found the format of the book a little to samey as his other books but it is an excellent way of getting the message across so I won’t complain too much – those new to Patrick Lencioni should enjoy it.

  3. I already had some on Patrick Lencioni’s writing on my shelves when I bought this. He is simply tremendous and I recommend this highly.

  4. Hugely helpful in understanding and articulating the challenges and successes within my current team.Such a helpful fable to help us grasp the message.

  5. A book that every person who works in a team, leads a team, or wants to be a part of a team (I guess there are no one left to count) should read, implement, and believes in. Importantly it is a part of the series of books written by the author on a particular aspect of organisational and leadership practice which once digested makes us a better knowledge worker.​

  6. Very enlightening .I am a big fan of Patrick Lencioni and his organization always teachings – see 5 Dysfunctions etc Seeing the “ individual “ qualities that he is looking – which are “basic “ qualities but you see that are most definitely needed.Truly the concepts aren’t complicated – but – you still need to SEE it ,, and this book definitely helps you to SEE it !

  7. I have enjoyed all Patrick Lencioni’s Fables and have learned much that has been useful from each one. This latest book is a good as the others and has earned it’s place on the bookshelf. Easy to read, engaging and full of wisdom.
