In Awesomely Simple, Spence helps you take a hard look at your business and evaluate how it is succeeding in the six areas most critical for lasting success. Every organization, no matter what its size or sector, must excel in cultivating:

Focusing on these fundamentals, Spence breaks down each principle to readily understandable action items, offering countless tools, strategies, and measurements of success to make these concepts both come alive and be put into practice. By bridging the knowing-doing gap, Spence shows how to develop tailored plans in easy-to-follow steps that will allow you to dramatically improve the success of your company.

Whether you are solidly weathering the current economy or struggling through it, Spence's straightforward, uncomplicated approach shows anyone how to turn big ideas into action and performance.
