Publisher's Summary

How did companies, both large and small, in different countries and industries, all achieve breakthrough performances when the odds were stacked against them? How did an engineer turned CEO transform his New Zealand steelmaking company around in one year and become a leader in the industry? How did a 600-person team, within the largest petroleum company in Brazil, overcome skepticism and dysfunctional dynamics to achieve the biggest process integration success in history? How did a major Japanese housing manufacturer thrive despite the worst economy in a generation? How did a South African platinum mine improve its safety performance by 57 percent in one year? All of these results were possible because people applied The Three Laws of Performance and rewrote their futures. This audiobook will show you how to do the same in your organization and your life. Although most of us aren't aware of it, we have a future that's already been written. Our future is written by hopes, fears, dreams, expectations, and decisions made about life. In the same way, organizations have futures written by history, circumstances, culture, aspirations, successes, and failures. These already-written futures determine and shape the level of performance that's possible for individuals and organizations. Authors Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan crack the code on rewriting the future for people and organizations, elevating performance to unprecedented levels.

Clarity, Peace of Mind & Actionable work,

I have been searching for the best way to do things for most of my life. Going through the "struggles of everyday life." After reading this thier are no more struggles. Just a new view on how the world occurs to me as a result of how I choose to see it. I thought I was a man of high integrity, with principles and values, and no one would question this. I found that I was out of integrity to my word with myself. I had never heard it like that before. You have it or you don't was my world. Thier was no compassion. Just get it done. What I got is that integrity isn't an all the time thing. It is an in or out fluid kind of thing and just becuase I cannot keep my word does not mean that I cannot honor it and then restore my ingrity. All without the stress and anxiety that used to come with it. Now being wrong really is an opportunity for growth, not just some cliche I use in my office. It is my hope and sincerest desire that the world take on the technology in this book. It started with me.
I am going to continue it with coaching from Landmark Education, and grow for real this time. Not just as a person, but as a soul or life force that exist within the community of the world. No barriers or descriptors will stop me from being relatable to people.

- John "I love studyng business."


No formulas here, just principles which if followed will make a profound difference in unleashing the power, spirit and creativity of your organization. I know - I've used them. But could never articulate those principles with the clarity Steve and Dave have.

Love the book. Have given it to all my clients and have audio and hard copy for myself. Better than "Good to Great".
