An excellent resource for understanding on organizational development and choosing what priorities to execute on.

This is such an appropriate book for these days as we look at American companies from finance through automobile manufacturing in big trouble. What business are you really in...what is the future, not the past. It could also be applied to personal lives as well as business.

Not every Amazon reader liked the book, dismissing it as just safe studies, but some did

An example

Larry Bossidy was legendary at General Electric, Honeywell, and Allied Signal. He and consultant, Ram Charan, have written two books based on his experience and his effectiveness. The first book was Execution: The Art of Getting Things Done. I believe that for most folks, especially in small to mid-size businesses, Confronting Reality is a more effective book. As a consultant and a leadership trainer, I found that confronting reality is one of the things that is very hard to get people to do. As human beings, we seem to be programmed to see the world the way we want it, rather than the way it is. The result is that we need to have some kind of a method for determining what reality is.
