by Sean Covey Chris Mcchesney Jim Huling José Gabriel Miralles

¿Recuerda la última gran iniciativa que vio languidecer en su empresa? ¿Se desplomó estrepitosamente? ¿Cedió ante la sofocante presión de otras prioridades? Da igual: para cuando se esfumó del todo, ni quien se acordara. ¿Qué fue lo que pasó?

Este método le dará una vuelta de tuerca a esta realidad para siempre.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution

by Sean Covey Chris Mcchesney Jim Huling

Do you remember the last major initiative you watched die in your organization? Did it go down with a loud crash? Or was it slowly and quietly suffocated by other competing priorities? By the time it finally disappeared, it's likely no one even noticed. What happened? The "whirlwind" of urgent activity required to keep things running day-to-day devoured all the time and energy you needed to invest in executing your strategy for tomorrow! The 4 Disciplines of Execution can change all that forever. The 4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX) is a simple, repeatable, and proven formula for executing on your most important strategic priorities in the midst of the whirlwind. By following The 4 Disciplines: * Focusing on the Wildly Important * Acting on Lead Measures * Keeping a Compelling Scoreboard * Creating a Cadence of Accountability leaders can produce breakthrough results, even when executing the strategy requires a significant change in behavior from their teams. 4DX is not theory. It is a proven set of practices that have been tested and refined by hundreds of organizations and thousands of teams over many years. When a company or an individual adheres to these disciplines, they achieve superb results--regardless of the goal. 4DX represents a new way of thinking and working that is essential to thriving in today's competitive climate. Simply put, this is one book that no business leader can afford to miss.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution - India & South Asia Edition

by Sean Covey

The Four Disciplines of Execution is about a simple, proven formula for reaching the goals you want to reach as a business or individual. In Covey's experience, the thing that most undermines the ability to execute goals is what he calls the Whirlwind: those urgent tasks that must be done simply to keep an organization alive. As Covey shows, the only way to execute new, important goals is to separate those goals from the Whirlwind. The Four Disciplines allow leaders to create a strategy that requires a change in behaviour, since only by ensuring that everyone on the team understands the goal, knows what to do to reach it and knows whether progress is being made, will a leader produce consistent breakthrough results while sustaining the urgent work of the Whirlwind. The Four Disciplines of Execution are:1. Focus on the Wildly Important; 2. Act on the Lead Measures; 3. Keep a Compelling Scoreboard; 4. Create a Cadence of Accountability. For more than a decade FranklinCovey has been studying what it takes to achieve important goals, and in this book they share success stories from a wide range of companies that have implemented the Four Disciplines to result in greater profits, increased market share and improved customer satisfaction. This way of thinking is essential to any company that wants to not only weather, but thrive in this economy. This edition is specifically adapted for the South Asia market by Rajan Kaicker, CEO of FranklinCovey India, featuring anecdotes and advice to reflect this emerging market.

Las 6 decisiones más importantes de tu vida

by Sean Covey

Los retos que enfrentan las personas durante su juventud son mucho más importantes que todos los demás que se presentan en otras etapas de la vida. Durante la infancia las decisiones más importantes las toman los padres y durante la vida adulta las decisiones más importantes son consecuencia de aquello que se decidió años atrás. Lo que no entiende la mayoría de los jóvenes es que, apenas tomamos el control sobre nuestra vida, debemos -en poco tiempo- trazar el mapa completo, y si cumplimos acertadamente con esta tarea el resto del viaje consistirá en mantener esas decisiones y cosechar frutos. Imaginemos una etapa donde ocurren importantes cambios físicos, las leyes adquieren un nuevo significado, la sociedad cambia radicalmente su perspectiva y concluye un método lineal de enseñanza. Añadámosle sobrevivir al stress académico, la brecha generacional con los padres, bombardeo de los medios de comunicación, el drama con el sexo opuesto, abuso, adicciones, depresión y mucha, pero mucha, presión. Ahora -en este entorno- pensemos que es necesario trazar el futuro y tomar decisiones inteligentes e informadas. Sensible ante esta situación, el aclamado autor de Los 7 hábitos de los adolescentes altamente efectivos se dio a la compleja tarea de elaborar la guía más completa, gráfica, sencilla y divertida para que los adolescentes cuenten con los instrumentos necesarios para adoptar eficazmente -con garantía de que se acertará- las determinaciones fundamentales que marcarán su futuro. Se trata de una obra magistralmente diseñada, original y entretenida, con un claro mensaje para poder evaluar los pros y los contras, lo inmediato y lo trascendental, lo bueno y lo malo, lo óptimo y lo pésimo. En resumen, hay que tomar decisiones informadas con los ojos bien abiertos.
