The best way to
help people learn
is by having them
figure things out
for themselves.
A great takeaway from this book is
understanding that the best way to help
people learn is by having them igure
things out for themselves. This doesn't
mean you don't help. It means helping
by asking questions that will lead your
employees to inding the answers on their
own. Most people already know what has
to be done. Effective leadership means
allowing your people to solve their own
problems by coming up with solutions
and holding them accountable for what
they have already solved.
Although this book is a quick read, it is
jam-packed with short, excellent lessons
about leadership and management.

The Ideal Team Player: How
to Recognize and Cultivate the
Three Essential Virtues
By Patrick Lencioni
The Ideal Team Player is based on the
idea that certain people are the right it
for your business if they have certain
character traits. The author presents
different workplace scenarios, explains
various dysfunctions that arise in the
workplace and discusses how to solve
them. As you make your way through
the book, you begin to understand the
virtues that are needed in your own team
members. You also discover which of your
team members don't it your company's
culture and why.
The book helps you recognize who the
ideal team player is. Generally speaking,
it's a person with whom you can build
trust, engage in healthy conlict and
make a real commitment to. The book
also discusses how to effectively hold
people accountable while focusing on
team results. The author discusses three
essential virtues-being humble, hungry
and smart-and explains how these everyday
qualities can yield a great deal of
power when you understand how they
play out in the work environment. This
book is deinitely worth reading, and
it can help you avoid hiring the wrong
team player.
My road to learning has been like a
treasure map that has led me to valuable
mentors. Many of these are book authors
who have taught me skills, given me the
beneit of their experiences and shared
effective ways to win. So, go on and
pick up a good book. Continue along
your path of growing yourself and your
business by continually learning and
being challenged.
