📚 Meister Book Club: Reinforce Organizational Clarity through Human Systems
That book is named "The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive" by Patrick Lencioni.
In it, you'll find a truly entertaining description of the 4 strategies recommended by the author to build the strong corporate culture needed to succeed in the so competitive world we live nowadays.
What is the book about?
In short, these are the 4 core principles explained in the book:
1. Build and Maintain a Cohesive Leadership Team
Trust, the removal of unhealthy politics and effective decision-making are key disciplines to foster within the leading team, although this can be challenging because it requires uniform commitment from all executives involved. Excessive corporate politics cause unresolved issues between top leaders, which can lead to an environment of distrust, disillusionment, and fatigue among the staff. By taking responsibility to resolve differences and speak in one voice, executives can create an atmosphere of trust that helps employees focus on delivering results. This enables people to thrive and stay with the organization.
2. Create Organizational Clarity
Organizational clarity involves reaching an agreement on the core principles that guide decision-making at every level. It is not about producing catchy slogans, but rather helps to make it easier to determine the best course of action when presented with conflicting choices.
3. Over-Communicate Organizational Clarity
After achieving organizational clarity, it is essential to continuously distribute it to the staff and leaders to ensure it is understood and remembered throughout the organization, not once, not in the main branch only. Every time, everywhere. Repetition is the key in this part.
4. Reinforce Organizational Clarity through Human Systems
To keep an organization healthy, the clarity must be embedded into all the processes that influence the value chain, especially, the operational processes.
What's the point?
The interesting insights I caught from @RhondaP's request are these:
- The whole Meister Suite (specially MeisterTask) is a system extensively used by humans in organizations around the world: hence, it's a "Human System".
- All organizations are different, hence the need for a "Customized Message".
So, her request, if implemented, could potentially help in covering half of the book:
- Over-communicating Organizational clarity
- Reinforce Organizational Clarity through Human Systems
Do you agree with me on this one? 💡

Anyway, I recommend the book and the entire author's collection to any person interested in learning practical ways of building and leading modern teams.
