If you have been following me online, you have now realized that I really love the book, The 3 Big Questions for a Frantic Family by Patrick Lencioni. I first came across the book when my good friend and colleague Todd Sandel recommended it to me. He and his wife had been using it in their family and had seen some really amazing results.
That was almost 3 years ago. And since then I have taught it in numerous parenting classes and workshops in churches, and more recently at my daughter’s elementary school as the request of the PTA. And I recommend it to almost every family I work with in therapy.
I love teaching this book because it’s short…it’s simple…and it’s super easy to implement. And more importantly, it has helped many families slow down their lives and become more focused and intentional about who they are as a family. It’s done that for my own family, and I believe it can do it for your family as well.
So over the next week I’m going to walk through each question one by one, demonstrating to you how easy it is to use this strategy in your family. And who knows, this strategy just might change your family like it has the lives of many other families.
So over this next week we will look at Lencioni’s 3 Big Questions…
- “What makes your family unique?”
- “What is your family’s top priority–rallying cry–right now?”
- “How do you talk about and use the answers to these questions?”
That is it…short and simple. There is more to unpack with each question, but basically those are the 3 big questions you will be addressing.
