"How leaders respond in the moment, is the win or lose decision," according to Jim Kouzes an authority on leadership. "Success if often built in the moment, not by the strategic initiative."
"Richard Moran's new book Nuts, Bolts & Jolts is a guide for what we might call 'JIT leadership,' or managing in the moment," Jim added. "Rich's book is about the little things, leaders need to know. If you want to lead, you'd better demonstrate the propriety, good manners, and protocol that earn the loyalty and respect of others."
JIT (Just in Time) refers to Toyota Motor Corporation's Just in Time manufacturing methodology that won global attention in the 1980's and 1990's.
"Using JIT leadership, the goal is to improve the workplace every day," Jim says. "Strategy is important, but without the enthusiastic commitment of the people who execute it, even well-planned strategies will fail."
