Patrick Lencioni – Unconference 2020

Dr. Alan Barnard and Patrick Lencioni at UnConference 2020 March 4-6


It was great to attend The Table Group’s UnConference 2020 event with Founder Patrick Lencioni in early March.

Patrick Lencioni, New York Times best-selling author, is on a mission to change the world of work. His focus is on shifting to a place where performance and dignity in organizations is the rule, not the exception.

Companies like Southwest Airlines, Chick-fil-A and Ford are proof of the incredible results that can be achieved when this shift is implemented and practiced by leadership teams.

I had the incredible opportunity to meet Pat at UnConference 2019. He was super excited to hear that I worked with Dr Eli Goldratt, creator of Theory Of Constraints and author of The Goal, for over 2 decades. He wanted to know what new research Goldratt Research Labs has been working on and any new insights we’ve gained.

I shared with him that the ultimate constraint or bottleneck in organizations is our limited management attention. As a result, management should focus on changes, not just with the highest ROI, but with the highest ROMA (Return on Management Attention).

He was so impressed that he shared this insight with the conference on both days and on stage and with keynote speakers like the Boeing and Ford CEO legend – Alan Mulally.

(If you want to learn more about Alan Mulally check out the insights he shared with me here.)

For those interested to hear Pat’s latest insights, you can watch his latest insights on how to achieve the Organizational health needed to succeed. His latest book The Motive, was released a few weeks ago and has already achieved Best Seller status so don’t miss it!

Thanks again to Pat for giving me the chance to attend UnConference 2020 before the global shutdown, if you’re looking for more content like this, make sure to follow me on social media.
