PRLog - Jan. 27, 2014 - PHILADELPHIA -- In this Soundview Live webinar, Scaling Up Excellence, Robert Sutton shows what it takes to build and uncover pockets of exemplary performance, spread those splendid deeds, and as an organization grows bigger and older-- rather than slipping toward mediocrity or worse-- recharge it with better ways of doing the work at hand.

He reveals how the best leaders and teams develop, spread, and instill the right mindsets in their people -- rather than ruining or watering down the very things that have fueled success in the past. He unpacks principles that help to cascade excellence throughout an organization including linking “hot causes to cool solutions” and building organizations where people feel as “I own the place and the place owns me,” and shows how to eliminate destructive beliefs and behaviors to clear the way for excellence to spread.

Robert I. Sutton is professor of management science and engineering at Stanford University, where he is co-founder of the Center for Work Technology and Organizations, Stanford Technology Ventures Program, and Institute of Design (“the d.school”). Sutton was named as one of 10 “B-School All-Stars” by BusinessWeek, which they described as “professors who are influencing contemporary business thinking far beyond academia. His books include The Knowing-Doing Gap (with Jeffrey Pfeffer), Weird Ideas that Work, and two New York Times bestsellers, The No Asshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss.

Attendees will learn:

•          The results of 7 years to studying how the best leaders spread constructive beliefs, behaviors, and practices from those who have them to those who need them.

•          What it takes to spread a mindset, not just a footprint, as a program or organization expands.

•          How to navigate the “Buddhism” versus “Catholicism” continuum – using approaches tailored to local needs versus using the same practices and customs as an organization or program expands.
