Publisher Comments:

Praise for The Three Laws of Performance

"You'd better read this book and fast, because it has the code for the future of your organization.If you can only read one book this year, this is the one."

Dr. Clotaire Rapaille, author of the bestseller The Culture Code

"Cracks the code wide open for breakthrough performance. The recounting of specificsuccesses across diverse businesses makes their claims undeniable. A mustread for next-generation managers and leaders."

Bob Young, former group president, Lockheed Corporation

"This book is a wonderful reminder that things we don't see determine what we do see, and therefore, what really gets done. The Three Laws of Performance hits the mark in providing both rich food for thought and techniques that can create profound results."

David Allen, author, Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity and Making It All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and the Business of Life

"Implementing their three 'invariable laws' will help you and others perform beyond your limits, andwith integrity. The reasoning is sound, the language is clear, the illustrations are compelling. A delightful, informative read."

Chris Argyris, James Bryant Conant Professor (Emeritus), Graduate Schools of Business Administration and of Education, Harvard University

"The Three Laws of Performance is mustreading for leaders who want to make a positive difference. Change doesn't happen in a vacuum; it happens when people see and hear a future they can get excited about. Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan show how true leaders sidestep negative stumbling blocks to articulate visions that heal and inspire."

Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager and Leading at a Higher Level

Synopsis:

A proven system for rallying all of an organizations' employees around a new vision and ideas for making the vision stick

When something at work isn't going smoothly, managers struggle with what part of the problem to tackle first. Do they start with cost reduction? Or should they go for process improvements first? The authors—who have helped hundreds of companies and individuals change and improve—say spend time and money adjusting the systems in which people operate, rather than targeting people and their performance directly. The authors show that it's in fact possible to change everything at once—with a focus on making such transformations permanent and repeatable.

  • Brand-new Introduction written for the paperback edition
  • Filled with illustrative examples from Northrup Grumman, BHP-Billiton, Reebok, Harvard Business School, and many others
  • Two experts in the field show how to make major transformations happen

The book outlines a process for engaging all employees to buy-in to an improved vision of an organization's new and improved future.

Synopsis:

When a hurricane warning is announced, everyone's concerns and actions become focused on that expectation; the hurricane essentially becomes the future which people are "living into." Similarly, when an organization needs to transform or make the leap to a higher level, everyone involved should be "living into" the vision of the organization's new, improved future. But in the majority of organizations, the future people are living into is based on past performance and experience, and so major transformation is almost impossible.

Steve Zaffron is, CEO of Vanto Group which has helped hundreds of companies envision and effectively implement major change and performance improvement. Zaffron and Dave Logan outline this proven system for rallying all of an organization's employees around a new vision, and more importantly, making it stick. Their focus is on making such transformations permanent and repeatable, providing practical examples from Vanto Group’s clients such as Apple, Lockheed Martin, Reebok, BHP-Billiton, Johnson & Johnson, Morgan Stanley, and many others.
