Patrick Lencioni

Ideal Team Player

Alyssa provides a comprehensive summary for Patrick Lencioni's book "Ideal Team Player."  The Ideal Team Player follows the story of three leaders at a construction company (Jeff, Bobby, Clare) who realize that they need to reevaluate their hiring process and what qualities to look for in applicants. The book follows the conversations they have as they process through people on their team and what qualities either made them great team players or that led them to leave the company. After much deliberation, they settled on “Humble, Hungry, and Smart” as the three qualifying characteristics for the ideal team player at their company. The book then defines those three qualities, and reviews what a team member would look like with any kind of combination of the three characteristics. (ITP Interview Questions Guide)
