According to Ken Blanchard, "I love CAUSE! It's all about people and organizations who feel called to make a difference—to serve a purpose far beyond the typical bottom line. The book's design is a feast for the eyes and its message is food for the soul. Read this book and serve at a higher level." These days if your company isn't tied to a heroic cause, your business may be doomed. Companies that define themselves as cause-oriented stand out! They have better employee engagement, customer loyalty, and ultimately, stronger profitability and growth. CAUSE! documents a fresh approach to leadership and collaboration that drives business success in companies as diverse as TOMS, Lululemon, Virgin, Southwest Airlines and PepsiCo. And CAUSE! takes an in-depth look at how National Life Group, a financial services firm, built its culture and brand around a CAUSE to stand out in the industry's sea of sameness. According to Peter Economy, The Leadership Guy, INC.COM, "There are few business books that truly have the power to change the world, but CAUSE! is one of them. In this book, Kevin and Jackie Freiberg clearly show how having a heroic cause attracts great talent, while motivating people to bring their best selves to work. Do your organization a huge favor and read this book right now!" And, according to Chip R. Bell, "CAUSE! is more than a clear blueprint for success; it is also a poignant design for organizational nobleness. Read it and get ready to have your perspective and practice redirected toward the soul of excellence."
Eliciting excellence is the essence of exceptional leadership. Everyone accepts that good leadership is important, but rarely is the question raised as to why and how good leadership makes a difference. Although developing good strategies and making smart decisions are important, bringing out the best in people is the most important ability a leader needs in order to produce great results. In Eliciting Excellence, Michael Beck explains why bringing out the best in people matters and shares with the reader how to do just that. Beck elaborates on 15 competencies which pertain to: • How We Act (Self) - How well we conduct ourselves − Show integrity − Earn respect − Be transparent and vulnerable − Maintain a positive attitude • How We Interact (Team) - How well we relate to people − Treat people like people − Communicate effectively − Treat adults like adults − Resolve conflict − Show appreciation and recognition • How We Guide (Organization) - How well we guide the organization − Develop compelling initiatives − Set clear expectations − Develop people − Be inspiring − Be of service − Lead appropriately He shows us why each competency matters, illustrating the positive impact strong leadership has on people, as well as reminding us of the negative consequences of weak leadership. He then offers practical suggestions on how to improve our ability in each competency. Eliciting Excellence will change how you think about leadership, help you bring out the best in those around you, and transform the results of your team and your organization.
