Are you a good thought leader or a GREAT thought leader?
In Good to Great, Jim Collins inspires leaders to move beyond average and become exceptional. Through detailed case studies of 11 companies that went from tracking the market to exceeding it by at least 3x, he shared the key factors that separate merely good organizations from great ones—from rare leadership to disciplined thinking to the relentless pursuit of a core mission.
Jim Collins says – “Good is the enemy of great.” and “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice and discipline.”
