Trade meaningless action for lasting traction: Adopt these strategies for organizational change and personal success
Source: Prentice Hall PTR
Too often in the workplace, it seems that being productive is less important than being seen as productive. But we all want and can trade the treadmill of endless, ineffectual action for the lasting value of traction. In this sample chapter from Ignited: Managers! Light Up Your Company and Career for More Power, More Purpose, and More Success, learn how managers can gain real traction in the workplace by creating and nurturing an environment for themselves and their team. Consider the concept of Management Value Added, a powerful tool for course-setting. Explore the difference between traction and slippage and how to build a portfolio of projects that stick rather than slip. Building upon these concepts, investigate how to achieve group traction and discover approaches for ensuring follow-through.
