5 Temptations of a CEO



5 Temptations of a CEO by Patrick Lencioni

Book Summary:

The book presents the story of Andrew, a CEO, and the five temptations he faces in management. The central part of the work is a quirky dream. Very simplified, the temptations are putting self first, wanting to be liked rather than to lead, making decisions reluctantly, elevating harmony above productive argument, and not trusting subordinates.
