Format: Paperback
This "little" book is BIG on concept and content. Having been a part of 4 large corporations over the past 25 years, I know that the thought process taught in the book could have made a difference. I am amazed at the number of top level executives who spend all of their time on the tactical issues only planning day to day when the weekly sales numbers arrive. I can't begin to count my wasted hours in the middle management/senior director ranks because the top level didn't THINK. I knew there had to be a better way. Practice the Executive Think Time Model and enjoy the results and your free time!

Executive Think Time, by Ellen Fredericks & Val Williams

For a small book, stretching just over 100 pages, this wonderful book packs a lot of punch. There are only six short chapters, each of which is crisply written & to the point.

In a nut shell, this book offers several distinctions, as follows, to help strategic thinkers to get more results from their thinking endeavours:

- reactive vs proactive;

- intentional vs random;

- tactical vs strategic;

- boundaries vs standards;

- dialogue vs debate;

- inquire vs interrogate;

- optimise vs utilise;

This is the part of the book I like most as understanding these distinctions - & putting the simple steps to work - takes your executive thinking to a higher & broader level.

Read this book if you are thinking about the future.
