When co-founder Jennifer Wilson offered to share the list with our readers, we jumped at the chance – and we’re presenting it this year as our annual list of summer reading. The first half of ConvergenceCoaching’s extensive list follows; the second half will appear later in the summer – once you’ve had a chance to get through some of these.
The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else In Business
Lencioni has more books on ConvergenceCoaching’s list than either Jim Collins or Stephen Covey, so you know he’s a big deal. He’s a highly regarded writer and thinker on organizational management; in this one, he talks about why a “healthy” company will outperform ones with more innovation, better strategy, or smarter employees. Healthy, in this context, means unified, and free of politics and internal division, and Lencioni offers a model for building that kind of environment, with plenty of stories, tips and real-life anecdotes.
