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 page-turner to date, Lencioni thrusts his readers 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 readers 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.

Most of the organizations where we live and work are marked by under-performing, often dysfunctional teams. Lencioni provides a powerful theory about the five behavioral tendencies that corrupt teams. His insights are at once both groundbreaking and simple, and they are presented in a way that can be applied in any organization - immediately. The five dysfunctions: Recognition corrupts Results. The desire for individual credit erodes the focus on collective success. Popularity corrupts Accountability. The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding one another accountable for their behaviors. Certainty corrupts Clarity. The fear of being wrong prevents members of teams from making decisions in a timely and definitive way. Harmony corrupts Conflict. The desire for preserving harmony eliminates the occurrence of productive, ideological conflict. Invulnerability corrupts Trust. The fear of being vulnerable in front of team members prevents the building of trust within the team. The book begins with the fictional story of a woman who becomes CEO of a struggling, high-profile Silicon Valley company with a dysfunctional executive team and turns things around. Following the story is an analysis of the five corruptions, diagnostic questions to help readers assess their organizations, and a teamwork model giving them action steps to overcome the corruptions.
