Does your family life feel frantic as you race from one soccer game, parent-teacher meeting, and backyard barbecue to the next? If so, you might want to check out Patrick Lencioni’s The 3 Big Questions for a Frantic Family.
In his new book, Lencioni, an Alamo business-management expert, turns his attention from Fortune 500 companies to the most important organization of all: the family.
The book begins with an overwhelmed wife searching for solutions to the chaos of kids’ soccer and swimming, school board meetings, and a husband out of town on business. She boils down management strategies developed by her husband’s firm to three questions parents should answer. These questions help parents identify what makes their family unique, and how to set priorities and steer their family ship to saner waters.
Lencioni, who’s written several New York Times best-sellers on business practices, illustrates ways to apply his system with real-life stories and practical tips. Read more from Lencioni’s book here.
