Overview

What Happens When People and Organizations Have TO Change?

The primes are universal and unavoidable patterns of group behavior that emerge whenever people attempt to transform systems or collaborate to solve complex problems. Every leader has seen their effect, but few can recognize, anticipate, and manage them. Unacknowledged, the primes can put any leadership agenda at risk. But once mastered, the PRIMES become a force to help you solve any leadership problem. An essential guide for twenty-first-century change agents, The Primes unveils 46 universal secrets of how to step up to major challenges, create a brighter future, and produce extraordinary results.

"How many books have we read that talk about the need for change? There are dozens, and they always fall short of giving us the keys to lead and drive successful transformation efforts. Chris McGoff's The PRIMES fills that gap. I started working with Chris in my former position as the Administrator for E-Government and IT at the US Office of Management and Budget, at which time, the US was ranked 36th in the world for providing web-based government services to its citizens. Using many of the PRIMES, we became a powerful, high-performance team, building a team of over 2,000 leaders in the public sector using e-government initiatives. The outcome: the US became first in the world in its delivery of federal services to taxpayers, businesses, and other nations."
Mark Forman, first US Administrator for E-Government and Information Technology Office of Management and Budget

"If you are interested in marginal incremental improvement and hearing feedback on what you already know, hire a consultant. If you want to truly transform your business and personal life, read and live The PRIMES."
Nick DeLuliis, Chief Operating Officer, CONSOL Energy Inc.
