This book is about Problem Solving and Decision Making. Volume 6: Your Guide to Better Problem Solving, is one of several books that make up The Effectiveness Guide, which provides you with the best in class knowledge, wisdom, and advice on both personal and team effectiveness and contains the minimum level of fundamental knowledge, skill, and ability essential to maximize your true career potential. Effective leaders know the value that good problem solving and decision making bring to their ability to consistently produce excellent results. I wrote The Effectiveness Guide to focus on the one thing you directly control and can therefore change; your effectiveness. Your effectiveness is the sum of all the skills, knowledge, abilities, and talents that you bring to your employer. Being selected for a leadership or management position is not something you control. Others, like your leader, make those decisions. So, how can you become more effective, which is what your leader expects, when it’s not taught anywhere in academia or in your company? As I see it, you have two choices. You can either do nothing and hope your leader trains you, or you can take the initiative and train yourself. The bad news is that businesses today aren’t willing to invest in training you until you’ve been with them for a considerable amount of time and have proven yourself. Where does that leave you? You’re on your own-good luck! Which of these two choices do you directly control? Over the past 50+ years, I’ve been searching for the answer to what makes some people more effective than others and what do effective leaders do that cause their companies to thrive and grow? During that time, I served in the US Military (as a US Army Officer for 23 years) and in Corporate America (as an Executive Coach for 21 years). Here, I was privileged to work with some of America’s most exceptional men and women who were real game changers, self-starters, and highly effective regardless of titles or position. I observed that the most effective people have several things in common. They were able to influence the actions of others by the way in which they applied the 9 Core Competencies of Effectiveness including Delegating, Planning, Organizing, Communicating, Problem Solving/Decision Making, Awareness, Training, Motivating, and Character. In a 21st-century world, the best companies, the ones who make it to the top in their industry, are thriving because their breaking all the tradition rules and stereotypes of traditional leadership. Positions, titles, and organizational charts are meaningless. So, what’s left. What remains is effectiveness; both personal and team effectiveness. The problem today is that many businesses are still relying on traditional development practices, which are stunting the growth of many young leaders. They’re still asking the wrong questions and using the same old lame metrics to measure success, which aren’t working as expected. Business leaders today are still asking the wrong questions. Instead of asking, “What are the qualities of great leaders?”, and trying to copy them, you should be asking, “How can I become more effective tomorrow than I am today?” You have too much to lose by not taking a more active role in learning the critical skills needed for successful job performance. Without your personal drive for greater effectiveness, getting just a little bit better tomorrow than you are today, no program of self-development can ever help you achieve your true potential. So, if you’re looking for a better way to jump start your career, this guide will be the best investment you could ever make. The one thing I know for certain is that doing nothing, sitting there, and waiting for someone else to make you more effective, is the definition of complacency, which will kill your career. Stop wishing you were better and do something about it today!

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. How effective are you at work? Would your employer agree? What are you doing every day to become more effective? These are the questions we'll be addressing as we explore how you can become more effective with each passing day. This book is about Problem-Solving/Decision-Making, your ability to get far more accomplished than your peers by identifying and resolving complex problems, making better decisions with confidence, while sleeping well at night. Problem-Solving is one of the 10 Core Competencies of Effectiveness: Followership, Delegating, Planning, Organizing, Communicating, Problem-Solving, Awareness, Training, Motivating, and Character. Volume 6: Your Guide to Better Problem-Solving, is one in a series of 10 books that comprise The Effectiveness Guide, which was created to provide you with the best-in-class knowledge, wisdom, and advice on how you can become more effective at work and in life. It contains over 1000 actionable Tactics, Techniques, and Tools (or best practices) used every day by the most effective people in their field and have proven reliable in helping others to maximize their true career potential by becoming more effective tomorrow that you are today. In a 21st-century world, the best companies, the ones who make it to the top in their industry, are thriving because they're breaking all the traditional rules and stereotypes of conventional leadership. Positions, titles, and organizational charts are meaningless. Over my 20] years as executive coach, working with hundreds of business executives and small business owners, I learned the real reasons most businesses today are struggling, while a few are thriving: The truth is that being selected for a leadership or management position is not something you control. Others, like your employer, make those decisions. You can influence other people, but you cannot control them. However, you can control and therefore change (measure and increase) your level of effectiveness. It's clear to me that the leadership and management wisdom we've used for years doesn't work anymore and is failing us in several critical areas. There's got to be a better way. Well, there is, and it's called effectiveness: both personal and team effectiveness. I know this to be true because I've spent 50+ years of my life seeking the answer to this simple question, Why are some people more effective than others? What do they think, say, and do that made them more effective? During that time, I served 23 years as a US Army Officer and 21 years as an Executive Coach in Corporate America. Here, I was privileged to work with some of the most exceptional men and women in America who were real game-changers, self-starters, and highly effective people. Through their example, I learned the true meaning of effectiveness by documenting what they did, how they did it, and most importantly, how they made us feel. So, how can you become more effective, when it's not taught anywhere in academia or your company? Here's the good news! The beauty of The Effectiveness Guide is that it teaches you how to enhance your individual and team effectiveness, regardless of your title, position, function, or level of authority. I also know that without your direct intervention in your career, you're leaving your career to chance. You have too much to lose by not taking a more active role in learning the critical skills needed for successful job performance. Another thing I know for sure is that doing nothing and waiting for someone else to make you more effective, is the definition of complacency, which will kill your career. If you're ready to elevate-your-game to the next level by becoming absolutely essential and irreplaceable to any employer lucky enough to have you on his team, The Effectiveness Guide will be the best investment you'll ever make in your career. Stop wishing you were better and do something about it today!. Seller Inventory # APC9781511824101
