"This is a valuable guide to transforming the traditional organization from average to great! Enlightened managers who practice the principles outlined in this book will create enterprising solutions that promote action driven by motives other than self-interest. These managers will no longer rely on authority or management procedures but believe in talent development; they will deploy philosophy, set standards of excellence, and support their people as good stewards of talent. The outcome is the high performance organization that forever delivers 'best in class' results."-David J. Vaughn, Board of Advisors, Corporate Universities International, Corporate University Xchange, Inc. "Dr. Enos uses a step-by-step approach that offers leaders a means to achieve ongoing performance improvement in their organization. This handbook gives you real cases that address specific opportunities and solutions and it also lists pitfalls that can derail efforts to improve. We have used several instruments mentioned in the book and were able to uncover and address problems immediately that might have taken months."-Dave O'Keefe, President and CEO, Landshire, Inc. "This book details in very specific terms the steps to accomplishing performance improvement in most any type organization from large to small start ups. We have benefited from many of the concepts explained in this book. We have used, for example, the Model for Growth with our management team and feel they have improved their skills through its use. Hiring employees who are a good fit for our organization has been a challenge. The profiling instrument, the Achiever, has given us another tool to assess candidates and how well they will fit."-JaneWulf, Director, Human Resources, Scottsdale Securities, Inc.
