About the Book
Cool absence of emotion is the prevailing ethic in business. Workplaces value compliance over creativity and leave feelings out of the equation. It’s not working. At the root of most operational headaches are people issues: recruitment, engagement, performance, and retention. These aren’t people issues at all—they are system gaps. It’s obvious we need a new way of understanding how to lead and interact with others to bring out their best and address these gaps once and for all.
The Possibility Process: A Proven Method to Achieve Breakthrough Business Results delivers a refreshing new vision that changes the game when it comes to leading people and producing optimal outcomes in business. Tana Plewes provides tools to overcome blockages and create systems that serve your business, and everyone who is impacted by it, far into the future. Systems leadership is a cost-effective solution to operational problems that offers compounding benefits over time. It's the missing ingredient in businesses that struggle to get ahead, innovate, and grow.
What others are saying about the book
The Employer of Choice
A systemic approach
To the powers that be
Can create a job richer
For you and for me.
Though we each see the world
Through a different lens,
We all come together as the
Means and the ends.
For we ARE the system,
And like it or not,
The system is filled with
The riches we’ve brought.
These relationships form
The basis of trust.
Interconnected and growing,
Respect is a must.
In trust we move forward,
And bring our whole hearts.
And the whole will be greater
Than the sum of the parts.
From a rich work environment,
Meeting our needs,
Comes a flow of empowerment,
Planting new seeds.
As vessels o’er flowing,
We’ll speak a NEW VOICE,
And maybe become
The Employer of Choice.
