I am looking forward to reading Confronting Reality: Doing What Matters to Get Things Right, the new book by Ram Charan and Larry Bossidy. I loved Execution, their first book, and am sure they will not disappoint. If you are interested in reading a short excerpt, you will find one on the Crown Business website.
The premise of the book sounds pretty interesting. As we seek to keep up with changes and trends in business, we often approach the task burdened by the mental baggage and models. And we may work real hard on the wrong stuff! The confronting reality in Confronting Reality is what needs to happen for business leaders to ensure the success of their companies.
While the notion of shifting paradigms, shattering the status quo, and focusing are not new ideas, it appears that Charan and Bossidy will be offering tools, practices, and new mental models that will help leaders successfully reshape their strategy and implementation plans.
If you want to learn how to realign your business, department, or team to win today and in the future, look for Confronting Reality to be available in mid October. You can preorder here:
