Overview

In today’s competitive business world, the need to become an effective performer is critically important. In fact, an individual contributor’s performance normally influences the employee’s merit raise, promotional opportunities and ultimately – his / her career advancement.

In like manner, organizations that cannot perform at high levels will find it difficult to compete in a rapidly changing business environment. Firms that are unable to unlock the key to stellar organizational performance are not only at a competitive disadvantage – they face extinction.

This book addresses performance issues, and is organized by topics that serve as the building blocks for success in business, regardless of one’s role. These include: Career Management, Coaching, Organizational Development, Team Building, Management, and Leadership.

Whether your objective is to be a superior individual contributor, or an excellent manager or leader, the practical advice contained in this book will help you achieve your goal.

I have drawn extensively from my personal experience helping people and organizations improve their performance to achieve success during my thirty-year business career.

The book is organized by topics that serve as the building blocks for success in business, and in life. These include the following: Career Management, Coaching, Organizational Development, Team Building, Management, and Leadership.
