Accelerate, by the executive leadership development team of Suzanne Mayo Frindt and Dwight Frindt provides a remarkably simple, elegant and insightful approach to creating the possibility of consistently producing extraordinary results. Our world is rapidly reshaping in many amazing ways. In this evolving new reality, successful leadership will have a very different nature than traditional approaches. It was quite different to be a leader in simpler economic times and when the world moved at a slower pace with less connectivity. Patterns of entitlement offered at least the illusion of security, and there was more time and predictability in producing results. Now at a time when previous business models and assumptions have been turned on their heads, people's livelihoods are changing and disappearing regularly, and successful businesses are being transformed for the new realities - the leadership required is radically agile, proactive, and creative. As we go forward, those who lead will be the ones taking advantage of the creativity and productivity gains available by focusing on the human, collaborative dimension, while laggards will suffer in the face of unrelenting change. Accelerate is a match for the challenging times in which we live, where leaders are facing problems and challenges that are complex beyond any previous era. The authors provide serious readers with deceptively simple access to meaningful transformation in their work and lives. Unlike other leadership books, Accelerate starts with who to BE rather than what to DO to produce effective leadership. You will find proven Principles and Practices to expand your leadership capacities for productive thought and interaction, create self-generated accountability and turn friction and waste into real productivity gains.

The two people I know who are most committed to their brothers and sisters on the planet are Dwight and Suzanne Frindt.  The evidence of their impact and reach shows up in how they relate to friends, family and their efforts to provide opportunity for those in developing countries. Their continued selfless generosity has allowed so many people around the world to live a better life. I am one of those fortunate people. This book offers you an opportunity to share their ideas and commitments as I have.

Dwight and Suzanne Frindt have written a truly masterful book on leadership. This book and its' brilliant principles, clarity, accessibility, and deep wisdom are a reflection of their extensive experience and impeccable standards of excellence. But more importantly, "Accelerate - High Leverage Leadership for Today's World" is a complete match for the challenging times in which we live. Leaders today are facing problems and challenges that are complex beyond any previous era in history. Meeting those challenges takes extraordinary new ways of thinking and being that have been tested by the authors and made available to everyone in this absolutely stunning and brilliant book. For anyone who is truly up to something at this critical time in history--this book, Accelerate is a must read.

Lynne Twist

The real life applications, examples, and worksheets that Dwight and Suzanne have included at the end of this book enable and empower the reader to immediately put the Operating Principles into action. For example, as a Human Resources executive, I found the information contained in "Making a Role Change" or "Closing a Performance Gap" extremely insightful and very helpful.  

Kristine Carter

Simple yet profound, provocative yet practical, Accelerate will take you and shake you and put you back into your life and work better able and ready to BE who you were put here to be--and DO what you are capable of doing.  A must-read for anyone wanting to bring their life and work together in powerful ways that transform both!  What a gift! Every word exudes the substance of Dwight's and Suzanne's decades of practical experience. Much more than a "how to" book, it's a "what's real" book!

John J. Scherer
Author, Five Questions that Change Everything
Founder, The Scherer Leadership Center

A must read for those who want to increase their effectiveness muscle in collaboration and problem solving in their professional and personal lives.

Linda M. Walker

The fundamental principles presented in this book provide real, practical access to the kind of collaboration that will be required to deal effectively and sustainably with the fear, resistance, and unrelenting change we all face in our daily work and lives. From creating a "Yonder Star" to call you forward, to confronting your own willingness to be 100% accountable for the quality of your interactions with others, the authors provide serious readers with deceptively simple access to meaningful transformation in your work and lives.

Dr. Tom Hill
Founder of Eagle Goal Coach and
Coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneurial Soul
