DO BIG THINGS
The simple steps teams can take to mobilize hearts and minds and make an epic impact.
Craig W. Ross, Angela V. Paccione, Victoria L. Roberts
Amid constant swirl, uncertainty and complexity is your team capable of doing big things?
Too often people are pulled together, labeled a “team,” given a directive and expected to deliver results quickly. Soon, however, the team suffers from DSD: distracted, hopelessly stressed and disconnected. Predictably, the team flatlines and the energy needed to succeed is lost.
Based upon the research of what successful teams do to overcome severe odds, Do Big Things delivers leaders an intuitive, seven-step process on how to equip your team to quickly operate in a manner where they can deliver an immediate and meaningful impact. Soon, the hand, head and heart of each team member are activated and aligned, enabling everyone to accelerate toward a common goal.
