THE ROAD TO EXCELLENCE: 6 Leadership Strategies To Build A Bulletproof Business

By David Mattson

Most leaders are passionate about their business, and if they had better ideas for how to grow their company, they would use them. They really do want to move their company into the top rank … but they have learned first-hand that just wanting that is not enough. They work very, very hard … but after a while, they realize that, no matter how hard they work, something important seems to be missing, and they’re not quite sure what that something is. They’ve fallen prey to the “Blind Spots Syndrome” – they don’t know what they don’t know about the obstacles they face.

THE ROAD TO EXCELLENCE identifies the common blind spots that can take any business off track. The book gives you six powerful leadership strategies that, when followed, make it easier for you to find the answer the critical question: What, exactly, stands between my company and organizational Excellence – and what do I do about it?

Only when you’ve answered that question can you take your company into the top tier!

“Drivers are trained to keep their eyes on the road ahead as well as check what’s happening around them. Leaders must do the same. And like drivers must be aware of blind spots that prevent them from seeing what’s alongside as well as what might be on the road ahead.
