9780787976385: Silos, Politics and Turf Wars: A Leadership Fable About Destroying the Barriers That Turn Colleagues Into Competitors

In yet another page-turner, New York Times best-selling author and acclaimed management expert Patrick Lencioni addresses the costly and maddening issue of silos, the barriers that create organizational politics. Silos devastate organizations, kill productivity, push good people out the door, and jeopardize the achievement of corporate goals.

As with his other books, Lencioni writes Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars as a fictional—but eerily realistic—story. The story is about Jude Cousins, an eager young management consultant struggling to launch his practice by solving one of the more universal and frustrating problems faced by his clients. Through trial and error, he develops a simple yet ground-breaking approach for helping them transform confusion and infighting into clarity and alignment.

From the Inside Flap:

SILOS, POLITICS and TURF WARS

ONE WEEK. That's all the time Jude had, because that's when his next workshop would take place at Children's Hospital. And so he became almost obsessed with figuring out the "silo thing," reading everything he could get his hands on having anything to do with organizational politics.

But Jude would not find his answer in any book. It would find him, in a more surprising way than he could ever have imagined.

Lencioni's latest fable is as practical as it is engrossing. Anyone who has lived through corporate turf wars or experienced the absurdity of departmental politics will find Silos, Politics, and Turf Wars an invaluable resource.

From the Back Cover:

PRAISE FOR SILOS, POLITICS, AND TURF WARS

"Lencioni's theory around alignment is simple and powerful, and could apply to any type of organization, large or small."
—Gary C. Kelly, vice chairman and chief executive officer, Southwest Airlines Co.

"An incisive and insightful look at how companies can recognize and remedy infighting. The tone of Patrick's writing is as warm and readable as the advice itself is sound."
—Michael A. George, chief marketing officer, Dell Inc.

"Lencioni is a master at creating real and tangible company alignment. We're using these principles to rally our people around building a global brand. Huge applause from our entire organization."
—Brian Scudamore, founder & CEO, 1-800-GOT-JUNK?
