Description


There is so much incomplete information in the infosphere about creating organizational excellence and how growing excellence relates to leadership. There are very few truths in organizations more relevant to creating excellence than "the only excellence available to your organization is the excellence you create from your culture, at your maturity level, through your own wisdom". Organizations spend precious resources attempting and re-attempting to turn themselves into other organizations' cultures for the purpose of emulating those cultures in the pursuit of creating excellence. Intrinsic Stability, which is a process of continuous improvement that leverages organic leadership, is a simple to understand concept distilled from years of experience seeding organizations with the ingredients to create their own brand of excellence. These proven concepts can be scaled and applied at any organizational maturity level, in any industry, with the confidence that the organization will gain experience everyday these concepts are applied. Since this method of breeding excellence within your organization, through Intrinsic Stability and Organic Leadership, is grown from "your" culture and "your" capabilities, it is 100% sustainable. No more half starts toward organizational transformations with delays that result in abandoning your efforts and precious resources spent due to new process constraints becoming unsustainable. Chris uses a series of short stories, following major concept discussions, to provide an easy to understand frame of reference to allow the reader to better conceptualize Intrinsic Stability and Organic Leadership principles. There are no special certifications, expensive consultants or extensive organizational preparations needed. These concepts can be applied immediately. In sharing his experience and wisdom in this book, Chris invites you to open the door to a brand of excellence that is uniquely your own.
