Leaders are committed to improving and growing their business, but all too often they find themselves mired in operational details and daily issues, leaving no time to pursue bold visions. Work is so unpredictable, unreliable, and complicated that managers are stuck firefighting in the front line.
Run Improve Grow is a call to action for these leaders: to instill in their frontline workers a bold sense of confidence and an “I run this place!” mindset that reflects pride and ownership of their critical role. With an empowered and confident front line, leaders no longer have to dash from urgency to emergency solving problems with barely any time to think. Instead, leaders can focus on big-picture, bold strategies for improving and growing their business.
Run Improve Grow provides readers with proven tools, techniques, and processes for breaking the firefighting habit, including World Class Time Allocations standards, What Went Well Daily Huddle scripts, and how to raise the Bar of Excellence to create responsive, innovative, and nimble organizations.
The roadmap in Run Improve Grow has near-universal applicability. The principles work for any organization. No matter how unique the situation or how specialized and different the industry, Run Improve Grow helps leaders break away from business as usual and start heading toward bold, perpetual growth.

The "Fearless Front Line" will challenge you as the organizational change agent, and as the leader. What would I really do if I was not afraid, if I were "fearless?" This book certainly equips you with the correct processes, systems and thinking to move your Company and those that work within it to excellence, to being "fearless". If you truly believe your people are the "best asset", and you truly want organizational change and improvements and you want to take responsibility for leading and developing them to "excellence", then you will need to purchase this book and read it through and apply the principles that Ray Attiyah so openly shares.
This is NOT a book to read once and place onto your shelf with all the others, use it like your GPS when you road travel, use it as a tool over the next several years to strategically maneuver over, around and straight through obstacles.
Apply Ray's principles and the RIG model throughout your Company over the next 90 days and involve the employees in the process, sharing all the techniques and tools outlined, perfectly written and placed, from cover to cover, sequentially forward, linking and hooking you in all the way through very easily. These are my plans, I purchased the remaining 19 books available yesterday afternoon on Amazon, I'm personally delivering them to those who need these technologies and who will indeed make up our Company's "Talent Fleet".
I am choosing to "not know" any longer and take charge using this book to guide me and help me become "fearless" and inspire those around me to do the same, that makes me different than most, it makes me "fearless".
I can't wait to read the next book from Ray Attiyah!
Ray takes the mystery out of teamwork through a straightforward approach of matching people, talents and activities. It frees up leaders to lead, managers to manage (and inspire) and the front line to self lead/manage/inspire. While the steps are simple, they are not necessarily easy. It will take courage and persistence to make this work. However, the results will be beneficial to all involved.
If you are in a startup, now is the time to lay your fearless groundwork and grow a spectacular, Apple-worthy company.
What keeps you digging through all of this is Ray's authentic voice -- you can tell the principles come from real experience, the solutions from real successes with his clients.
Many of the transformational processes in this book might be best deployed with one of Ray's Definity Partners people at your side, but you will come out of that as a person who has been taught to catch fish, not just be fed fish. This book offers you the chance to make fearless leadership a mainstream quality at all levels of your organization.
This book is dense -- in a good way. Consider it an owner's manual that should be studied and referenced over time and you will get the real enduring value out of it that sets it apart from most other books in its category.
