Truly very helpful.
I love how they go into detail to help you get started in getting your team on board with these ideas. Very helpful if your teams have been struggling to attain certain goals.
Covey does it again! Great insight and useful templates to put together a real program for my team to work on their wildly important goals. I was able to put this to actual practice with my team and set standards for following up on our most important issues we face to make our company and team work more efficiently.
This is a great book that simplifies the very complex topic of improving execution.
I'm buying this book for my team!
Yes...with some conditions.
As a student of strategic planning, leadership, and management, I think I've read just about all of the better volumes on the subject. 4DX is not really "ground breaking". Determine your most important strategic goal, determine how to measure progress, and be accountable to the measures necessary to accomplish it. Now, that being said, I can see how this process will have great value for many (most?) companies and organizations who have trouble focusing on improvement. So I would recommend the book. Just don't expect something world-changing when you do.
Lots of really good uncommon common sense. it's interesting chiefly because following these principles is the only way I've ever really gotten things done. whether in high school or early on working with teams.
when I'd been successful I'd accidentally followed these principles.
For strategic planners, frustrated with the difficulties inherent in executing or implementing your best laid plans this book is not a must-read; it's a MUST DO.
The ideas in this book are dynamite. They make sense; when I'm listening, I want to get up and go and implement them. I've listened to it a few times, and I'll continue to relisten to it whenever I feel I need a reminder on how to set goals and achieve them. I've recommended it to colleagues at work. The reason I don't give it five stars is I don't care for all the readers on it, and because it's a little too much of an advertisement for the company that wrote it. Still, it's definitely worth listening to despite its performance shortcomings.
