How many of you work too hard, focusing more on your business and not enough on your family?
Many folks have great business plans, but very few actually have similar plans to make sure their families are just as successful.
If you’ve ever wondered how to take the same focus and strategy that makes your business successful and apply it to your family, then you’ll love what today’s podcast guest Pat Lencioni has to say.
As an entrepreneur, business thought leader, and award-winning author on organization health, Pat’s most cherished trophy (received for selling 1 million books) is one he wasn’t even there to accept, because instead he was with his family celebrating his son’s first confession.
In this episode, we discuss with Pat one of his least popular but most important books. The Three Big Questions For A Frantic Family: A leadership fable about restoring sanity to the most important organization in your life. In this book, Pat lays out how he learned to apply the same principles to his family that he teaches to others for building strong businesses.
In our interview, Pat lays out these three questions and how you can answer them for your family:
- What makes you unique (your values and strategy as a family)?
- What’s most important in your life, right now?
- What are you going to do to daily remember your values, strategies, and priorities?
So if you want to apply the same motivation and drive that you have for your business to your relationships and your family, then buckle up, take notes, and enjoy!
