Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) August 14, 2006
Everyone knows someone who’s underperforming in some way. In the business world, it may be an employee, a subcontractor, or a vendor. On the personal side, it might be a child, someone on the sports team, or a family member. The truth of the matter is that most people have several underperformers in their life.
Tom Connellan, author of the New York Times Bestseller “Bringing Out the Best in Others!” (ISBN 188516758X) gives you three keys that unlock performance potential. Because it crosses the lines of practical application - establishing a clear set of steps to follow to encourage higher performance levels in anyone - his book has also been number one on five different Amazon Bestseller lists - Business, Relationships, Parenting, Coaching and Leadership.
The three keys Connellan reveals in “Bringing Out the Best in Others!” are simple yet powerful – “Believe in Them, Hold Them Accountable, and Provide a Supportive Environment.” "While most leaders, teachers and parents do this to some degree, Connellan suggests that most of us are usually out of balance in some way. We might overdo accountability and underdo support, or we might overdo support and underdo accountability.” Connellan bumps up the tools available in these areas and then details how to maintain balance and alignment for peak impact.
“Bringing Out the Best in Others!” gives you a solid foundation that will turn around underperforming individuals in a short period of time. The keys Connellan details are based upon his extensive research into high performance leadership. They started as the content of his keynote lectures to corporate clients. Receiving feedback that these tools were not just helpful in the business marketplace, but have widespread applications for anyone who’s underperforming, Connellan wrote “Bringing Out the Best in Others!” to support the many requests of his clients. Now, business leaders, military leaders, youth sports coaches, parents, and teachers can avail themselves of these proven and practical techniques.
