Review: Three Signs of a Miserable Job

The Three Signs of a Miserable Job: A Management Fable About Helping Employees Find Fulfillment in Their Work - Patrick Lencioni

 Once again, Patrick Lencioni's formula for communicating simple management and sociological truths works. In Three Signs, he spins a believable tale about a manager whom Lecioni makes personal for the reader. It's such an engaging story that before you're done, you're nodding in agreement as he says the three signs are:

  • Anonymity
  • Irrelevance
  • Immeasurement

in the last short section of the book, he unpacks each sign and explains why even a high salary or prestigious job can be miserable if these are present.
