Description

In this, his sixth and most anticipated fable, New York Times bestselling author Patrick Lencioni takes on his most universal and human topic to date: misery at work. In doing so, Lencioni presents a revolutionary yet simple model for making any job more rewarding and fulfilling.

Lencioni tells the unforgettable story of Brian Bailey, an abruptly retired executive searching for meaning in his career and his life. Through a series of twists and turns, Brian discovers the three universal causes of anguish and frustration at work, and the keys to overcoming them. Whether he’s trying to convince an investment banker that job satisfaction matters, or motivating a pizza delivery driver to be friendlier to customers, Brian is forced to confront aspects of himself and others, that make job misery a painful reality in so many organizations.

Whether you’re an executive looking to establish a cultural competitive advantage, a manager trying to engage and motivate your people, or an employee searching for fulfillment in your work, The Three Signs of a Miserable Job will provide you with immediate relief–and hope.
