Good To Great: Why Some Companies Make The Leap… And Others Don’t.

Title: Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t.

Author: Jim Collins

As someone who deals regularly with different companies in my capacity as a RISE Programs Business Coach, I got very excited when I read Collins’ title, “Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t.” Although after reading through this book, I must admit I wasn’t impressed. I’m not saying it was entirely bad, because it did have good concepts. There just wasn’t anything about the book which propelled me to a new level of understanding.

The one thing I enjoyed most, and believe that most organizations need to learn and implement, is the need to recruit the right people to a team and to place them in the right positions. Leaders shouldn’t be wasting valuable time and energy motivating employees to do their jobs. It’s far more effective instead to equip self-motivating people with a vision they can support and work hard to bring to realization. This all starts with putting the right people, in the right positions, and letting them flourish.
