The rapid pace and complexity of business have put increased stress on leaders to perform. What's more, the flow of demands never stops, and the work often seems to be spinning out of control. In this challenging business climate, the most successful managers are those able to adopt a two-pronged approach: building their own capabilities while leveraging those of their employees. Staying Focused on Goals and Priorities gives managers all the tools and know-how to focus employees' work, set reasonable priorities, measure performance, and align their efforts with the company strategy to produce results. Business professionals will benefit from techniques that help them assess their capabilities as leaders-their strengths, weaknesses, values, and behaviors. This useful guide even moves outside the walls of the corporation, coaching managers on issues such as personal equilibrium and work-life balance.
