The Table Group Launches "The Three Signs of a Miserable Job Video Presentation" and "Manager's Booklet"

New Tools Based on Lencioni's Best-Selling Book, "The Three Signs of a Miserable Job," Offer Practical Solutions to Universal Pr

LAFAYETTE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/28/08 -- The Table Group, the leading consulting firm headed by Patrick Lencioni, announces the release of "The Three Signs of a Miserable Job Video Presentation and Companion Guide" and "The Three Signs of a Miserable Job Manager's Booklet" for training professionals and managers.

Job Misery

Lencioni's sixth fable, "The Three Signs of a Miserable Job," takes on his most universal topic to date, human misery in the form of what he calls the miserable job epidemic. According to a recent MSNBC statistic, Americans' satisfaction with their jobs is lower than it's been in the last 20 years, with fewer than half saying they are satisfied. In the book, Lencioni presents managers and employees alike with a revolutionary yet simple model for addressing this common problem, helping to make any job more rewarding and fulfilling.

"This latest book on job misery touches a universal topic that is closest to why we originally went into business," notes Lencioni. "Job misery deeply affects each person's personal happiness which, in turn, can affect the person's family and friends. By looking closer into this pain point and turning job misery into job satisfaction, the lasting effects are limitless."

The Products

"The Three Signs of a Miserable Job" was released in Summer of 2007 and quickly rose to the top of the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and BusinessWeek best-seller lists. Requests for additional help and guidance around this model surfaced immediately, prompting the development of "The Threes Signs of a Miserable Job Video Presentation" and "Manager's Booklet." The products have been designed for organizations interested in transforming their culture, reducing turnover and making the lives of their employees more fulfilling.

The Video Presentation

The Video and Companion Guide set includes a 40-minute DVD and follow-along guide, as well as one sample Manager's Booklet. This tool can be used to train multiple managers simultaneously in a classroom setting (half-day) or as a self-guided development for an individual manager (2 hours).

Key Takeaways

--  A richer understanding of the model and its application
--  Remarkable stories illustrating the model
--  Specific advice and practical tools on how to begin the process of
    eliminating job misery
--  A common language for discussing job fulfillment
    

The Manager's Booklet

The booklet is a living document which once completed, should be used, referred to and updated regularly. The booklet can be used as a stand-alone tool or as training material in the classroom setting along with the Video Presentation.
