“The behavioral approach has made a huge difference in our organization. The before/after is startling: tremendous gains in our ability to get things done; more effective executives; talent development; job satisfaction; cost effectiveness-I am convinced that it is because of applying Behavioral Science. We have more than tripled earnings in a very competitive industry-the proof is in the pudding.”-Don Hamm, President & CEO, Assurant Health

“Ten years ago, Canadian National Railway started a massive culture change. In customer satisfaction, operating ratio, asset utilization-CN today is best-in-class, typically by a wide margin.

About the Author

Leslie Braksick is a much-sought executive coach, strategy execution consultant, and behavioral expert. Her CEO and C-suite clients rely on her wisdom and unrelenting commitment to their success as they navigate the greatest challenges of their careers. Leslie is known for her ability to quickly grasp a company's complex history and culture, and help its executives make strategic change happen well and quickly. She has been at the heart of some of the world's largest merger integrations and has pioneered behavior-change strategies as clients work through issues like double-digit growth, divestitures, integrations, and major strategic shifts.

Leslie holds a doctorate in Applied Behavioral Science and a master's in Industrial-Organizational Psychology. In 1993, she co-founded The Continuous Learning Group, Inc. (CLG), which quickly grew into the world's largest behaviorally based consulting firm, focusing on strategic change implementation and large-scale performance improvement (www.clg.com). CLG has over 200 blue-chip clients worldwide and a seasoned, second-to-none consulting team.

In this book, Leslie's unique blend of scientific knowledge, coaching skills, entrepreneurship, energy, personality, writing, public speaking, and strong personal values will touch your professional and personal life.

Dr. Braksick has assigned all royalties from this book to the Sydney Leigh Braksick Heart Fund at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation.

As a consultant myself, I am always looking for a new twist on the areas that are important to our clients. The author has covered an area that most books just skip over.....maybe because it is hard work. So much of what we deal with on a daily basis with our clients, internally or at home has to do with behaviors this book really takes you through the process of clearly understanding the role of behaviors on others as well as the bottom line results of the organization.

If you are tired of reading the same old same old, you'll want to add this to your library.
