    Patrick Lencioni: The Ideal Team Player
    Patrick Lencioni is the founder of The Table Group and the author of 11 books which have sold over 5 million copies and been translated into more than 30 languages. He is the author of the blockbuster bestseller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team*, and his most recent bestseller, The Ideal Team Player: How to Recognize and Cultivate the Three Essential Virtues*.
    Key Points

    Team players should be humble, hungry, and smart. Of the three, hunger is the hardest to teach later in life.
    Standard interviews don’t work. Think of unconventional ways to really get to know the interviewee.
    All the people interviewing a person need to evaluate the candidate using the same standards.
    There is a very high opportunity cost for hiring someone with values that don’t fit into your organization.
