Description

"Over the last few decades, speed has increased dramatically in daily business activity. Speed in business is partly a reflection of the increase in speed in every area of modern life. In order to stay competitive and profitable, companies must improve the speed at which they operate and make crucial decisions. Today, competition is fiercer than ever, as companies all over the world vie to be the first to market new products and services. The first-to-market advantage nearly always results in a dominant share of that market. But can an organization move quickly if the leaders and professionals move slowly? Drawn from extensive data and field research, Speed reveals eight essential behaviors anyone can adopt to improve speed and drive organizational effectiveness. Leadership experts Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman share valuable insights gleaned from one million 360-degree feedback assessments from more than 75,000 leaders collected by their fi rm. Speed was shown repeatedly to be a powerful predictor of a leader's effectiveness. This timely resource will help you: - Assess your own speed and see how you compare to other leaders in the Zenger Folkman database - Learn how to overcome "speed bumps," challenges, and obstacles that get in your way - Incorporate tactics and strategies for speeding up critical elements of your day - Escalate communication for quicker, more effective results and resolutions - Adopt behaviors to help increase speed and spark innovation in yourself and others As the authors demonstrate, speed is produced not by frantic activity but by skillful execution of eight key behaviors. Step by step, they show you how to increase your own speed, anticipate trends, and be more productive. Speed gives you a much-needed competitive advantage in business and in life. "
