Getting Naked by Patrick Lencioni was recommended to me and my team by my boss. A quick read (I read it in a few hours), it is super-insightful and provides a different perspective on how we approach clients.
If you haven't worked in a client-services firm or industry, you'll still get a lot out of this book - it applies beyond business principles and directives.
I pulled a few phrases from the book yet I can't help to think these are more impactful in context. Still, I thought they were important and clever enough to highlight.
One of those quotes that out of context doesn't make much sense. Yet, it stuck out like crazy when I read it. Hilarious ending to a somewhat contentious discussion.
A take on advice I was given a long time ago. Everyone has ideas; if you want to stand out, make those idea real.
Ahh, the feeling of change.
Jack's wife plays a prominent role in this story. The interchange that ended with this quote was amazing.
I think we all struggle with this from time to time. The challenge of getting into a rut only to realize the challenge ahead to make a productive and adult decision to accept or reject the change.
The easiest (for me) and most confident appearing way to connect with an audience.
If there's one passage to describe the book, it's this one.
