This review is from: The Synergist: How to Lead Your Team to Predictable Success (Hardcover)
Fewer than half of the nearly 600,000 businesses we start annually in America survive their fourth year. And nobody counts the ones that are simply underperforming. Furthermore, nobody recognizes that if we simply improved the hit rates of entrepreneurs to grow their businesses to average business size in the US --- roughly 20 employees --- we'd bridge the unemployment gap in 3 years.
In The Synergist Les McKeown makes an unarguably compelling case for one way to get that done --- by rewriting the rules for how we understand the differences between the contribution that each individual brings to our efforts, and by giving us solid and easy-to-follow advice for how to use each other well.
His keen observations and invention of the concept "The Synergist," as the individual who puts what's best for the organization first, I hope, becomes a universally understood principle for organizational effectiveness. It's just that powerful.
