About For Books  Humble, Hungry, Smart: The Three Universal Traits of Great Team Players  Review
on "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team," "Happy, Humble, Smart" is the story of Jeff Shanley, the former head of business development from DecisionTech, who takes over his family's business in Napa, California. Jeff brings with him the lessons he learns from Kathryn Petersen, DecisionTech's CEO and the protagonist of "The Five Dysfunctions," but he finds himself frustrated with the number of people he hires that don't seem suited to be team players. Jeff casually seeks the advice of the local college basketball coach, whose teams are known to exceed the expectations that his talent would indicate. That's how Jeff learns about the three traits that the coach uses to evaluate players, a recipe that has a greater impact on the team's success than any technical approach. A non-fiction model summary will follow the fable and the book will provide many opportunities for related programs, applications and tools, including the possibility of an accessible self and team assessment.Topically, "Humble, Hungry, Smart " will be the most closely aligned book to "The Five Dysfunctions.
