An insightful new work from the multimillion-copy best-selling author Sean Covey and the FranklinCovey organization, based on their work with hundreds of thousands of employees and large companies to unveil the essential disciplines proven to help businesses and individuals realize their most important goals.
A publishing phenomenon, Sean Covey and the FranklinCovey organization have become one of the most respected brands in the highly competitive world of thought leadership in business. In his latest work, Covey lays out an unprecedented plan for goal-realization that will revolutionize the way we approach our dreams.
The 4 Disciplines of Execution provides a simple, proven formula for achieving the goals that every individual or organization needs to reach. From Marriott to the U.S. Navy, Covey and his team have worked with more than 200,000 people in hundreds of organizations to improve performance, identifying and honing four secrets of perfect execution: Focus on the Wildly Important; Act on the Lead Measures; Keep a Compelling Scoreboard; and Create a Cadence of Accountability. By allowing teams to separate those urgent tasks that demand attention merely to keep a company alive - called the "whirlwind" - from new, "wildly important" goals that promise to break new ground, these disciplines empower leaders to accomplish what is by far the most difficult aspect of creating results: executing a strategy that requires a change in behavior. Simply put, this is a work that no business, however small or large, can afford to pass up.
"The 4 Disciplines of Execution offers more than theories for making strategic organizational change. The authors explain not only the 'what' but also 'how' effective execution is achieved. They share numerous examples of companies that have done just that, not once, but over and over again. This is a book that every leader should read!" (Clayton Christensen, Professor, Harvard Business School, and author of The Innovator’s Dilemma)

Great for corporate drones, not entrepreneurs
No - it became apparent while listening that this is targeted toward corporate middle-managers and has little relevance for a hard-driving entrepreneur like myself. If you have a large number of employees at a big company and they're not getting the job done, your leadership is at fault and this book *may* help.
The least interesting to me was simply how corporate it all is. And the cutesy "4DX" brand reeks of that.
I found this book recommended in a business form but almost immediately realized that this is for managers of good-sized teams in big corporations, not for no-nonsense entrepreneurs like me and others in the same arena. It seems to me like one of those books (and brands) that thrive by giving corporate drones something to talk about and work on, creating an excuse to justify their jobs.
