From the Publisher

Change is happening all around us — in the family, the workplace, and society as a whole. Which leaves us with two basic choices. We can be victims of change. Or we can meet the challenges of today’s rapidly changing world by changing ourselves. We can advance from where we are right now to where we want to be tomorrow. We can grow the distance.

As bestselling author Jim Clemmer demonstrates in this highly readable book, personal growth is all about developing the qualities of leadership that each of us has, regardless of our position in society or the workplace. With his unique blend of humorous quips, anecdotes, and insightful commentary, he has taken decades of experience in organizational leadership development and created a remarkably easy-to-read guide to living and growing that will benefit anyone who reads it.

Jim Clemmer has been described as one of North America’s leading transformation and improvement thinkers. He is the author of a number of international bestsellers, including "Firing on All Cylinders," "Pathways to Performance," and "The Leader's Digest." In his presentations, workshops, seminars, and retreats, he has shared his insights with hundreds of leading corporations and organizations, as well as tens of thousands of individuals. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

5 Reasons Why Growing the Distance is a "Must Read" for Everyone in Your Organization:

"Growing the Distance" is a valuable resource for everyone in your organization - from the senior management team to the frontline employees, the timeless principles and ideas in the book will truly inspire powerful personal and organizational growth. Here's why:

1. "Growing the Distance" helps your organization perform to its full potential by creating "leaders in action."

Every organization is ultimately only as good as its people. Today, more than ever, companies look to everyone, at all levels, to think and act like leaders. The key, as Jim Clemmer demonstrates in this insightful new book, is to first create inner self-leadership, which ultimately will determine how people perform in their roles and help move the organization forward.

2. "Growing the Distance" provides a framework for your people to meet the challenges of rapid change.

With the rapid pace of change - in the workplace, our families and society as a whole - the organizations that succeed will be those where employees at all levels are equipped to adapt to and excel in constant change. In "Growing the Distance," Jim presents the key principles that will empower your teams to respond positively to continuous and unpredictable change, rather than becoming casualties of the change process.

3. "Growing the Distance" creates lasting, meaningful change in your people and your organization.

In Jim's research with hundreds of companies, he has identified that one of the key factors in the success or failure of any new improvement effort is the personal commitment and "buy-in" of everyone, at all levels. In this book, Jim shows us that in order to achieve this, you must focus on the very essence of people - their "core." Using the "Growing the Distance" Leadership Wheel, Jim helps people clarify and grow their personal visions, values, and purpose, providing the basis for ongoing growth and change.

4. "Growing the Distance" is ideal for enhancing the performance of teams, projects, or groups.

The timeless principles in "Growing the Distance" allow people to reflect on who they really are and rediscover meaning, passion, and commitment in all areas of their lives, including their careers. By providing a common language and set of values, "Growing the Distance" improves the cohesiveness and performance among team members.

5. "Growing the Distance" provides a strong foundation for your other developmental activities.

Whether it be management development programs or technical, change, process or skill training for frontline people, "Growing the Distance" complements and supports your developmental activities. By guiding and inspiring people to take responsibility for their own growth and performance, this book enables you to achieve greater results from your training and improvement efforts. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
