"How can I develop an elite leadership team when there's hardly any time to get my real work done?"
This is a universal lament from business leaders in fast-paced organizations... until they apply the unique and time-efficient practices outlined in this book. Competent is Not an Option shows you how to adapt the talent development process used by championship sports teams to produce all-star leaders in your business.
What if you could ...
• Compress a year's worth of leadership development activities into one month?
• Build leadership capabilities every day, even during phone calls, giving presentations, or in breaks between meetings?
• Ignite hidden leadership capacity to achieve goals you've given up on or never even contemplated?
• Turn mind-numbing meetings into engaging skill-building sessions?
What sports teams know-about mindset shifts, practice methods, and elite talent development habits-isn't taught in any business school or corporate training department. Apply the principles in this book and you will develop an elite leadership team who can out-think, out-practice, out-learn, out-innovate, and out-perform your competition.
