THE MOTIVE: WHY SO MANY LEADERS ABDICATE THEIR MOST IMPORTANT RESPONSIBILITIES

THE MOTIVE IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER AND WILL BE AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS AND EBOOKS ARE SOLD ON FEBRUARY 26TH

Best-selling author, Patrick Lencioni returns next month with the highly anticipated new leadership fable, The Motive, set to be published by Wiley on February 26th. Lencioni has written a dozen books, including the teamwork book of our time The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, which have sold over 6 million copies and have been translated into over 30 languages worldwide.

His previous best-selling books have focused on how leaders can build great teams and lead organizations. In his latest fable, The Motive, Lencioni shifts his attention towards helping leaders understand the importance of why they are leading in the first place. A great resource for folks already in leadership positions and for those early on in their careers, The Motive, helps create a solid foundation to support current and prospective leaders to examine their true motivation for leading.

Forbes recently included The Motive as one of 4 books recommended by executives “To Improve Your Company Culture,” and Dan Bigman, chief content officer and editor-in-chief of Chief Executive Magazine called it, “…a must-read for anyone in leadership.”

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.

The Motive is currently available for pre-order and will be available wherever books and ebooks are sold on February 26th.
