Synopsis: When founders, boards and executive teams get together to build a billion dollar business, they often fail to realize that what's required in a leader during the early stages of growth is altogether different than what's needed later on. The characteristics of leadership so crucial in a company's infancy - the vision, the drive, the creative genius - are not the same qualities needed in a big company.

This book is about the journey from entrepreneurial start up to a high impact company and the pitfalls you can avoid along the way.

About the Author: Nancy Truitt Pierce is founder and President of Woods Creek Consulting Company, an organizational effectiveness consulting firm that provides services for strategic planning, executive team effectiveness, organizational assessment and design, and merger integration. They specialize in high growth, high impact companies that are knowledge driven.

Before founding Woods Creek Consulting, Nancy was Managing Principal of The Washington Firm, Ltd. During her tenure from 1989 to 1996 the firm grew over 700%, becoming a recognized leader in providing organizational effectiveness and human resource services in the Puget Sound region. Notable clients included AT&T Wireless, Adobe Systems and Autodesk. Prior to joining The Washington Firm, Nancy was a Principal with the Center for Leadership Development. She worked with hundreds of Fortune 500 executives, including senior managers with Burlington Northern Railroad, Continental Can and Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.

At Woods Creek Consulting, Nancy and her team have focused on emerging early stage companies (50 to 1000 employees) and have become recognized as leaders in providing organizational effectiveness for fast paced, knowledge driven companies. Their clients have included HomeGrocer.com, SeaMED, Data I/O, WildTangent, Corixa, BSQUARE, 180solutions, Who’s Calling and dozens of others. In addition, Nancy established peer-learning groups for executives in the technology sector. Over 150 local leaders participate in monthly learning forums including the Executive Peer Group, the CFO Roundtable, the Technology Executives Peer Group and the Service & Support Consortium. Woods Creek Consulting also produces "RealTime Benchmark Surveys", a series of short, online monthly benchmarking surveys that hundreds of local companies participate in.

Nancy has led hundreds of training and learning forums for thousands of key leaders, and also produced a highly acclaimed intensive 3-day workshop for CEOs in high growth companies. Nancy is an accomplished speaker who has presented to numerous organizations throughout the country. She is often rated as one of the best speakers, with a style that is dynamic, rich with content and full of humor.
