How to Build High Performance Organizations

What is the foundation of leadership?. When you gaze at a highrise tower, you can only see the visible space above ground. The pillars which hold it together are hidden. But the foundation has to be strong, otherwise the entire building will fall. Similarly, the foundation of effective leadership is largely invisible. But it rests on two behaviors. Building trust is one. The other behavior is creating “spark.”

Leading at Light Speed© is a new leadership book for anyone and everyone who cares to build high performance organizations that perform at very high levels, as measured by profitability, growth, and customer retention. The trend of this globalized world economy is increasing complexity and accelerating change.  Leading at Light Speed describes in detail ten quantum leaps (specific ways of acting and behaving) that build trust, spark innovation, and create a high-performing organization.

  1. I genuinely like the style of the website. I had a peek at your source code, hope you do not mind, to check what theme you’re making use of. Is it it a no expense theme or do I have to purchase it?
