A proven system for rallying all of an organizations' employees around a new vision and ideas for making the vision stick When something at work isn't going smoothly, managers struggle with what part of the problem to tackle first. Do they start with cost reduction? Or should they go for process improvements first? The authors who have helped hundreds of companies and individuals change and improve say spend time and money adjusting the systems in which people operate, rather than targeting people and their performance directly. The authors show that it's in fact possible to change everything at once with a focus on making such transformations permanent and repeatable. Brand-new Introduction written for the paperback editionFilled with illustrative examples from Northrup Grumman, BHP-Billiton, Reebok, Harvard Business School, and many othersTwo experts in the field show how to make major transformations happen The book outlines a process for engaging all employees to buy-in to an improved vision of an organization's new and improved future.

"The Three Laws of Performance provides a list of rules (and stories explaining how they work in practice) that promise to help individuals in leadership roles facilitate the group coherence and cohesion that are necessary to bring about transcendent performance. The book is based on a wealth of experience from decades of applying the ideas it explains. If you're interested in this kind of theory, the book is worth a read." ( ) "I received an email a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in reviewing the new book from Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan titled "the three laws of performance". I jumped at the book right? Well...I'd happily pay twice the list price for this book and so should you... The full title of the book is The Three Laws of Performance: Rewriting the Future of Your Organization and Your Life and it is called a 'Warren Bennis' book...if you like Bennis, you'll like this book too. The premise of the book is that there are three laws that will always affect performance...just like the law of gravity will always have an effect on you. The three laws are: How people perform correlates to how situations occur to them How a situation occurs arises in languages Future based language transforms how situations occur to people ... This is a great book...I think it is one of the best books I've read in the last few years. Grab this book soon as you can and enjoy!" ( ) "Three Laws is about impossible transformations and how systemic change can remake your life or your organization." ( Life Insurance Selling )

There are a lot of books that give you ideas on how to improve situations in your life.....this is not that book - the 3 laws gives you language to put into action straight away!

Example of real companies and situations are present to demonstrate the language in action and how effective it can be!

I would recommend this book to everyone and anyone- mum's, businessess and organisations to everyone inbetween.
