What happens when your organization or an individual or team within your organization fails?

This week we have a special, topical episode featuring Michael Lorsch, principal consultant for The Table Group which was founded by best-selling author, speaker, and leadership guru Patrick Lencioni.

Today, Michael discusses the characteristics of both leaders and organizations who can push through failure and come out better on the other side.  Past conversations with several guests, including Joe Shoen (U-Haul)Tom Sadvary (HonorHealth), and Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World), touched on this subject, so we decided to pause and explore it further.

Next week we will be back with our regular program where we talk with another Arizona Original!  Hope you join us again next week.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni

Mar 22, 2017

This week we have a special, topical episode featuring Michael Lorsch, principal consultant for The Table Group which was founded by best-selling author, speaker, and leadership guru Patrick Lencioni.  These special episodes - which will appear from time to time -  address topics raised in prior podcast episodes and allows us to take a moment to dig a little deeper.

Today, Michael discusses the value of mentoring at all levels of an organization.  Past conversations with several guests, including Dr. Mike Berens (TGen) and Courtney Klein (SEED SPOT), touched on this subject, so we decided to pause and explore it further.  We even touch on the need for leaders to get honest input...an issue raised by Lauren Bailey (Upward Projects) just a few weeks ago.
