Qualities Needed to Thrive in the World of Work

We’ve got a real treat lined up for you!

Patrick Lencioni

Patrick Lencioni

Every month, we bring you trusted advice from exceptional people in the areas of job search, career planning, everyday at-work issues, and executive wellbeing. Headlining our May sessions of ExecuNet Master Class is Patrick Lencioni. Recognized as a true pioneer in leadership and business, Patrick is a New York Times bestselling author and according to the Wall Street Journal ” one of the most in-demand speakers in America.” In 2008, he was named “one of the new gurus you should know” by Fortune magazine.

Patrick will be sitting down with ExecuNet’s Tony Vlahos to discuss the most valuable qualities a person should develop in order to thrive in the world of work and in life.

Their conversation will explore concepts from the leadership and business pioneer’s latest book: The Ideal Team Player. In the book, Patrick tells the story of Jeff Shanley, a leader desperate to save his uncle’s company by restoring its cultural commitment to teamwork. Jeff must crack the code on the virtues that real team players possess, and then build a culture of hiring and development around those virtues. Beyond the fable, Pat presents a practical framework and actionable tools for identifying, hiring and developing ideal team players.

As this illuminating conversation will show, leaders who can identify, hire, and cultivate employees who are humble, hungry and smart will have a serious advantage over those who cannot. They’ll be able to build stronger teams much more quickly and with much less difficulty, and they’ll significantly reduce the painful and tangible costs associated with politics, turnover and morale problems. And employees who can embody these virtues will make themselves more valuable and marketable to any organization valuing teamwork.

Whether you’re a leader trying to create a culture around teamwork, a staffing professional looking to hire real team players, or a team player wanting to improve yourself, this special session of ExecuNet Master Class will prove to be as useful as it is compelling.

Patrick Lencioni is an amazing speaker! I hope you’ll join me and tune in for this special Fireside Chat-style session of ExecuNet Master Class.
