Why do some organizations thrive in recessionary times and emerge even stronger while others wither and die? The answer, says John Hanes is that winning organizations have legions of "change-focused leaders" at every level, not just one lone visionary at the top. They follow a proven formula for exercising dynamic leadership to both survive uncertain times and flourish for years to come. Sadly, many organizations are saddled with a dysfunctional culture characterized by: * Mind numbing bureaucracy * Toxic bosses * Hesitancy and indecisiveness * Appalling indifference to customers * A cloak of secrecy * Frequent and costly errors To get ahead in tough times, organizations need agile, innovative leaders who challenge the dysfunctional status quo in response to the new and brutal competitive realities. Change-Focused Leadership is a time tested process designed to equip and inspire such leaders regardless of their position in the institution.
