From Cascade to Conversation
This book challenges organisations to rethink how they communicate with their employees.
It argues that organisations have lost control of the message – if they ever had it. People everywhere have found their voice. The audience no longer passively receives the message, but shares and shapes it. Broadcasting to employees is therefore becoming dangerously archaic in this digital age.
Success demands greater internal collaboration, which can only happen through genuine conversations. In an era when deference is in decline and trust in short supply, conversation also has the power to restore much needed faith and confidence in our leaders.
Good to Great - Why Some Companies Make The Leap…and Others Don’t
The best-selling Built to Last answered the question of what it takes to build an enduring great company from the ground up. Good to Great answers an even more compelling question: ‘Can a good company become a great company and if so, how?’. After a five-year research project, Collins concludes that good to great can and does happen. In this book, he uncovers the underlying variables that enable any type of organization to make the leap from good to great while other organizations remain only good.
