A bunch of books are stacked on top of each other

“The Motive: A Leadership Fable” by Patrick Lencioni

The Motive is Pat Lencioni’s latest leadership fable, and we at StarQuest highly recommend this book for your library. Lencioni is a best-selling author who has written a dozen books that focus on how leaders can build teams and create healthier organizations. His latest will not disappoint!

This fable is a leadership story about two companies who are led very differently under two CEOs — with each leader having a vastly different motive behind their leadership. The story gets at the importance of why leaders lead – and explores the importance of leading for the right reason. Lencioni also presents action steps for changing your approach in five key areas. And in so doing, he helps leaders avoid the pitfalls that stifle their organizations and even hurt the people they are meant to serve.

The Motive is a fairly quick read with an engaging story line. The message is powerful and should be a must-read for leaders wanting to increase their effectiveness.
