Miserable jobs – those that breed deep cynicism, unhappiness, and frustration – exist across all industries and status levels. Unfortunately, far too many employees experience job misery each day. Not only can this state of affairs have devastating personal consequences, but it can also negatively influence a company’s bottom line.

In The Three Signs of a Miserable Job, author Patrick Lencioni uses a business fable to reveal a simple remedy for job misery. Through the story of Brian Bailey – a retired executive attempting to learn more about himself and others by replicating the innovative and satisfying culture he established during his tenure as a CEO – Lencioni teaches readers to identify and address three signs of job misery.
