Doing the Right Things Right
How the Effective Executive Spends Time
By Laura Stack
Foreword by William A. Cohen, PhD, author of The Practical Drucker
Laura Stack is so right about "Doing the Right Things Right." My advice for how an effective executive should spend some time? Read and learn from her book!
– Harvey Mackay, author of the #1 NY Times bestseller Swim With The Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive
Productivity Pro and author, Laura Stack, says that effectiveness is identifying and achieving the best objectives for your organization—doing the right things. Efficiency is accomplishing them with the least amount of time, effort, and cost—doing things right. If you’re not clear on both, you’re wasting your time. As Drucker put it, “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”
Stack identifies twelve practices that will enable executives to be effective and efficient, grouped into three areas where leaders spend their time, called 3T Leadership: Strategic Thinking (business), Teamwork (employees), and Tactics (self). For each practice, Stack offers advice from her twenty-five years in the trenches working with thousands of leaders globally. You’ll receive scores of new ideas on how you, your team, and your organization can boost productivity.
