The Three Laws of Performance Audiobook

The Three Laws of Performance: : Rewriting the Future of Your Organization and Your Life

Our future is written by hopes, fears, dreams, expectations, and decisions made about life. In the same way, organizations have futures written by history, circumstances, culture, aspirations, successes, and failures. These already-written futures determine and shape the level of performance that's possible for individuals and organizations. Authors Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan crack the code on rewriting the future for people and organizations, elevating performance to unprecedented levels.

Publisher's Summary

How did companies, both large and small, in different countries and industries, all achieve breakthrough performances when the odds were stacked against them? How did an engineer turned CEO transform his New Zealand steelmaking company around in one year and become a leader in the industry? How did a 600-person team, within the largest petroleum company in Brazil, overcome skepticism and dysfunctional dynamics to achieve the biggest process integration success in history? How did a major Japanese housing manufacturer thrive despite the worst economy in a generation? How did a South African platinum mine improve its safety performance by 57 percent in one year? All of these results were possible because people applied The Three Laws of Performance and rewrote their futures.

This audiobook will show you how to do the same in your organization and your life. Although most of us aren't aware of it, we have a future that's already been written. Our future is written by hopes, fears, dreams, expectations, and decisions made about life. In the same way, organizations have futures written by history, circumstances, culture, aspirations, successes, and failures. These already-written futures determine and shape the level of performance that's possible for individuals and organizations. Authors Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan crack the code on rewriting the future for people and organizations, elevating performance to unprecedented levels.

    "Amazing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I will recommend to everyone, because it gives life changing experience


    What did you like best about this story?

    the best part is that there is nothing bigger then your word what you are saying how one creates the world as he/she speaks.
    Also how the future is uncertain and need to be empty so you can create it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me more positive and not to get affected by the simple things.


    Any additional comments?

    Every one should read this book, but also go and attend Landmark forum.

    Story
    "Can alter your work environment in amazing ways"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Three Laws of Performance to be better than the print version?

    No but that would be because I am new to audio books and tend to prefer written word. I would say it is just as good as the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Three Laws of Performance?

    Hearing about the first law.....I really hadn't considered how integral our views are to the actual events in our lives.


    Have you listened to any of Walter Dixon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ontology

    Story
    "Eye opening!"

    The book is instrumental in describing the consequences of not obtaining employee and stake holder "buy-in". As well, the authors use great real life story descriptions of what success looks like when properly applying the three laws in conjunction.

    Story
    "Meh, Wordy, Overthought - a few Good Thoughts"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Made it more readable. Very Herky-Jerky both with it's timeline and thought process. It would have been nice, for example, if they had clearly stated the 3 laws; they NEVER did, not once. I was always loosely described in a sentence and differently each time.


    Would you recommend The Three Laws of Performance to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe, if I thought they weren't in touch with reality.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Loosened up. Very rigid, sounds like he's reading it for the first time. I have this problem with a lot of Audible Narrators. You wouldn't think it'd be that hard to get someone to just read a book nice and evenly.


    Could you see The Three Laws of Performance being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Dear god, no, unless they were trying to anesthetize the audience.

    The narrator puts you to sleep. Maybe a different narrator and I'll try to listen to the book again.
