Best-Selling Business Author Turns His Attention to a Growing National Epidemic: Job Misery

Web Services Journal - Montvale, NJ, USA - An unhappy, unproductive workforce is the subject best-selling author and CEO of The Table Group, Patrick Lencioni, tackles in his seventh business book, The Three Signs of a Miserable Job (Jossey-Bass, August 2007, $24.95, Cloth).

"No one is immune to job misery -- it touches every profession imaginable from restaurant service worker, to middle manager, to NBA superstar," says Lencioni. Countless sources support this statement including a recent USA Today poll, which found that "people unhappy with their jobs is at an all time high." Lencioni, known for his ability to net-out complicated theories into actionable models, offers a practical solution for managers to end job misery -- one that's both simple and costs nothing.

Following the format that has yielded Lencioni over two and a half million copies in book sales worldwide, the book is written using a gripping business fiction format with characters any reader can relate to. This book's main character, Brian Bailey, is a retired CEO that sets out to discover the X factor in high-achieving organizations. What Brian learns is that a fulfilled workforce, with low turnover and high job satisfaction is the key.

In real life, Lencioni develops his models while out in the field speaking and consulting to a wide range of organizations, including Southwest Airlines, Cisco Systems, the NFL, the NBA, the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne and others. Like all Lencioni's models, the three signs may appear simple at first glance, but the fact remains that managers simply aren't giving people what they need to succeed -- his actionable approach is often just what's needed to get the message across.
