Patrick Lencioni just came out with his book, Three Signs of a Miserable Job: A Fable for Managers. I've read many of his books, but I haven't read this one yet. However, the title has me thinking where he might go in the book. All of us have bad days at work. We might even go so far as to say we were miserable that day.
