Review:

This book is the most useful, insightful and complete resource I have come across for those who want to unlock their full potential. It will be really useful in helping people to find ways to solveproblems they previously thought unsolvable. A Steve Yick, IS Programme Director, Dixons Store Group Packed with stories, advice and self-assessment exercises, this book provides an original step-bystep guide to replicating gold medal brilliance in modern business A Helen Latham, Director of Value Solutions, Capita Symonds I found the book extremely valuable and very easy to read. I have been driving turnaround in the business and the book was fantastic in helping me understand how I could help and support mypeople to better performance and a happier state (I also got lots of good pointers for myself!). A Liz Moseley, Business Director, 3M The book has highlighted to me the difference between good and great leaders/performers. Not only are they able to thrive on pressure, but also have the humility to seek feedback and consistently set out new personal action plans and targets. A Steve Holliday, CEO at National Grid ...relevant and thought-provoking...helps the reader toformulate a series of practical steps to turn conceptsinto executable strategies.
