Lencioni, Patrick

Leadership Excellence;Jan2007, Vol. 24 Issue 1, p13
The author focuses on selecting the right people for a company's culture. He states that apart from what a person's strengths are, attitude is an important element to consider. He shares that while drafting for a children's soccer team, he paid little attention to the children's speed, field awareness and power and focused on the children's attitude, skill and parents. He explains that it is much easier to teach a humble, hard-working young man than a spectacular athlete who will not listen.
