The alignment tools you need to win in today’s complex, fast-paced business world “In The Power of Alignment, Labovitz and Rosansky showed us that organizational alignment was essential for success. They helped us focus on mission accomplishment while driving out cost. In Rapid Realignment they show us again how great leaders are working alignment every day!” —ADMIRAL VERN CLARK, former Chief of U.S. Naval Operations “What are the enablers of business success? A clear plan, effective execution, and a willingness to adapt quickly are important, but the big enabler is talented, engaged, aligned people. Rapid Realignment makes the case in a compelling way and provides a toolkit for creating organizational alignment.” —KEN FREEMAN, Dean, School of Management, Boston University, and former CEO of Quest Diagnostics “When it comes to integrating care across two organizations, alignment is critical to success.” —DR. JAMES MANDELL, CEO, Children’s Hospital Boston “Building on a set of core principles, Rapid Realignment provides a flexible and relevant toolset to help organizations quickly and effectively assess and make adjustments to direction.”—FRANK H. SCHNEIDER, III, Executive Vice President, CFO and CIO, Jockey International, Inc. “Rapid Realignment gives managers the tools they need to navigate today’s ever changing business climate.” —JOHN PATRICK, CEO, Farmington Bank From the authors of the bestselling book The Power of Alignment When Vern Clark became the Chief of Naval Operations in 2001, he made alignment one of his top five goals for the Navy. He also made George Labovitz and Victor Rosansky’s pioneering book, The Power of Alignment (1997), required reading for every admiral. Under Clark’s leadership, the U.S. Navy underwent one of the greatest—and most successful—organizational transformations in its 200-year history. Now, Labovitz and Rosansky introduce the highly anticipated follow-up to their groundbreaking book: Rapid Realignment. The business world has changed dramatically since 1997. With the pace of technological, competitive, and social change increasing at an amazing rate, the difference between winning and losing today lies in a company’s ability to adapt and stay focused. Rapid Realignment gives you the insights and tools you need to ensure that strategy, customers, processes, and people work seamlessly together in the service of customers and that they continually realign in the face of change. The authors provide everything you need to know about: Engaging employees at every level with the “Main Thing” of your business Linking strategy and organizational processes Bringing the customer voice inside your company through social media Using social media and digital technology to quickly identify points of misalignment at any level Creating the “Enterprise Effect” Case studies from a broad array of companies, including FedEx, Quest Diagnostics, the U.S. Navy, Dana Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center, Farmington Bank, and others clearly illustrate the authors’ methods, demonstrating that they work in any industry. Rapid Realignment provides a practical blueprint for “wowing” customers and reaching peak organizational performance—no matter what today’s turbulent world throws your way.

“AN IMPORTANT BOOK ABOUT MOTIVATION FROM A PROVEN MOTIVATOR.” —JACK WELCH Yum! Brands CEO David Novak learned long ago that you can’t lead a great organization of any size without getting your people aligned, enthusiastic, and focused relentlessly on the mission. But how do you do that? There are countless leadership books, but how many will actually help a Taco Bell shift manager, a Fortune 500 CEO, a new entrepreneur, or anyone in between? Over his fifteen years at Yum! Brands, Novak has developed a trademarked program—Taking People with You—that he personally teaches to thousands of managers around the world. He shows them how to make big things happen by getting people on their side. No skill in business is more important. And Yum!’s extraordinary success (at least 13 percent growth for each of the last ten years) proves his point. Novak knows that managers don’t need leadership platitudes or business school theories. So he cuts right to the chase with a step-by-step guide to setting big goals, building strong teams, blowing past your targets, and celebrating after you shock the skeptics. And then doing it again and again until consistent excellence becomes a core element of your culture.

Discover How the Best Companies Win Not By Acquiring the Right People--But By Building the Right Organization The "war for talent" is one battle every company believes it should be waging. But while competitors are busy chasing after the same "hot" individuals, smart companies are doing something infinitely more useful and far more difficult to copy--they're building organizations that make it possible for ordinary people at every desk and cubicle in their companies to perform as if they were stars. Blowing up the prevailing wisdom that companies must chase and acquire top talent in order to remain successful,Hidden Valueargues instead that the source of sustained competitive advantage already exists within every organization. O'Reilly and Pfeffer, leading experts on organizational behavior and human resources, argue that how a firm creates and uses talent is far more important than how the firm attracts talent. The authors provide vivid, detailed case studies of several organizations in widely disparate industries--including Southwest Airlines, Cisco Systems, The Men's Wearhouse, and NUMMI--to illustrate how long-term success comes from value-driven, interrelated systems that align good people management with corporate strategy. In a refreshing break from management tomes that force-feed superficial frameworks and trite "rules," the authors instead allow the company stories to take center stage. They guide readers in discovering for themselves how seven different firms maximize talent, why one firm hasn't fully released the hidden value in its work force, and, most importantly, how the winning companies have made it tough for competitors to imitate them. Collectively, the stories reveal a common path to success that places values before strategy, emphasizes implementation over planning, and focuses on getting the best out of all employees, not just individual stars. The authors also explore concerns or questions managers might have about how each company's experience parallels or conflicts with their own. Providing a rare opportunity for managers to actively participate in an invaluable learning process,Hidden Valueoffers a customizable template for building high-performance, people-centered organizations.

THESE HABITS WILL MAKE YOU EXTRAORDINARY. Twenty years ago, author Brendon Burchard became obsessed with answering three questions: 1. Why do some individuals and teams succeed more quickly than others and sustain that success over the long term? 2. Of those who pull it off, why are some miserable and others consistently happy on their journey? 3. What motivates people to reach for higher levels of success in the first place, and what practices help them improve the most After extensive original research and a decade as the world’s leading high performance coach, Burchard found the answers. It turns out that just six deliberate habits give you the edge. Anyone can practice these habits and, when they do, extraordinary things happen in their lives, relationships, and careers. Which habits can help you achieve long-term success and vibrant well-being no matter your age, career, strengths, or personality? To become a high performer, you must seek clarity, generate energy, raise necessity, increase productivity, develop influence, and demonstrate courage. The art and science of how to do all this is what this book is about. Whether you want to get more done, lead others better, develop skill faster, or dramatically increase your sense of joy and confidence, the habits in this book will help you achieve it faster. Each of the six habits is illustrated by powerful vignettes, cutting-edge science, thought-provoking exercises, and real-world daily practices you can implement right now. If you’ve ever wanted a science-backed, heart-centered plan to living a better quality of life, it’s in your hands. Best of all, you can measure your progress. A link to a free professional assessment is included in the book.
