Summary
Based on original research from a seven-year global study, this book reveals how leaders from diverse organizations inspired and uplifted their teams' performance. Distilling the six common characteristics of leaders at high-performing organizations across business, sports, and education, the authors explore the nature of uplift, its impact on performance, and the ways to achieve it within and beyond an organization's walls, revealing how leaders: identify and articulate an inspiring dream that is coherently connected to the best of what the organization has been before; pursue that dream at a sustainable pace without squandering resources, incurring excessive debt, or burning people out; forge paths of innovation and improvement that others have overlooked or rejected; monitor progress by using metrics and indicators in a mindful and meaningful way; and build teams that naturally pull people into change rather than pushing them through it. --
