Patrick Lencioni is one of my favorite writers. If you took all his books, and all his years of consulting expertise, and wrapped them up in one book, you’d have “The Advantage.” But there’s one big difference. He typically uses allegory to present principles. Not with this one. “The Advantage” is principle-driven.

My favorite part of this book is the six questions he brings out. I won’t let the cat out of the bag (you’ll need to read it), but these six questions could be a great advanced leadership topic that would take two days or more to work through.

If you’re serious about taking your organization to another level, please take your time and read this book. It’s full of leadership and organizational wisdom, but let me be clear: There’s no way you’ll digest what you need by trying to read this in one week. It’ll take three good reads to digest it! I’ll retread this several times.

From my perspective as a church-planting pastor, “The Advantage” would be a great read for someone in their third to fifth year of planting a church. If I was in year two of my church, I would be hard-pressed to get what Lencioni is saying as a whole. Hear my heart here: I’m not saying you shouldn’t read it! But to fully embrace these principles, you’ll need some organizational maturity.  Enjoy!
