January eBook of the Month: The Three Signs of a Miserable Job: A Fable for Managers (And Their Employees) by Patrick M. Lencioni

Posted on: Dec 28, 2007 @ 9:09:29 am

In his sixth fable, bestselling author Patrick Lencioni takes on a topic that almost everyone can relate to: the causes of a miserable job. Millions of workers, even those who have carefully chosen careers based on true passions and interests, dread going to work, suffering each day as they trudge to jobs that make them cynical, weary, and frustrated. It is a simple fact of business life that any job, from investment banker to dishwasher, can become miserable. Through the story of a CEO turned pizzeria manager, Lencioni reveals the three elements that make work miserable -- irrelevance, immeasurability, and anonymity -- and gives managers and their employees the keys to make any job more fulfilling.
Although not yet a part of the UCF collection, the January eBook of the Month is provided through the generous support of John Wiley and Sons. UCF Libraries owns print copies of other management fables by Patrick Lencioni, such as Death by Meeting and Silos, Politics and Turf Wars.
