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.
Robert Sutton Webinar
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.
