My New Book—How to Win, Even in Unpredictable Times

Friday, August 28th, 2009

I am excited to announce a new book I have just released with Bob Whitman, Chairman of FranklinCovey.  The book Predictable Results in Unpredictable Times outlines four key principles for getting great performance in good times and bad:

First, winning companies slim down to a few key simple goals with clear targets and careful follow-through. Everybody in the firm knows the goals and what to do about them.

Second, winning companies maintain high levels of trust with their customers, employees, and suppliers. They are totally transparent about their commitments, what they can and can’t deliver. Only the most trustworthy companies survive the kind of turbulence we’re in now.

Third, winning companies do more of what matters. In tough times most people resort to “doing more with less,” but the real question is “more of what?”  Winning companies focus on giving more value-not just cutting back.

Finally, winning companies recognize that everyone gets scared when things get uncertain. Instead of allowing themselves to be paralyzed by fear, they channel their anxiety into results. They unleash people’s best ideas and energies instead of suppressing them or micromanaging them.
