TouchPoints: Creating Powerful Leadership Connections in the Smallest of Moments

    By Douglas R Conant, Mette Norgaard
A fresh, effective, and enduring way to lead--starting with your next interaction

Most leaders feel the inevitable interruptions in their jam-packed days are troublesome. But in "TouchPoints," Conant and Norgaard argue that these--and every point of contact with other people--are overlooked opportunities for leaders to increase their impact and promote their organization's strategy and values. Through previously untold stories from Conant's tenure as CEO of Campbell Soup Company and Norgaard's vast consulting experience, the authors show that a leader's impact and legacy are built through hundreds, even thousands, of interactive moments in time. The good news is that anyone can develop "TouchPoint" mastery by focusing on three essential components: head, heart, and hands.

"TouchPoints" speaks to the theory and craft of leadership, promoting a balanced presence of rational, authentic, active, and wise leadership practices. Leadership mastery in the smallest and otherwise ordinary moments can transform aimless activity in individuals and entropy in organizations into focused energy--one magical moment at a time.

EXCERPTS: In the Smallest of Moments - An Excerpt From TouchPoints

Posted May 18, 2011, 8:39 PM with category of General Business
We get pitched to a lot—about books, ideas, authors, projects; from authors, publicists, agents and publishers. It is part of what we do here, and listening to all comers is part of how we weed through the massive amount of material that is published each year, find what we think are the best projects, make connections and stay successful. But it can get a little tiring at times, especially when you know someone isn't really thrilled about the project, idea or author they're pitching. Read more
