Description

What exactly is "breakthrough leadership"? Quite simply, it's an approach to performance aimed at transcending limitations and maximizing team potential. As the author points out, the process of innovation and high performance is not random or haphazard. The limitations and barriers that commonly get in the way of success can be overcome-if we use the right leadership techniques.

And that's just what Dr. Bart Barthelemy, one of the nation's leaders in the fields of aeronautics and astronautics, discusses in The Sky Is Not the Limit-leadership techniques that work, and work consistently. Barthelemy has used his years of management experience to come up with a practical, results-driven guide to leadership based on the ideas of competitive collaboration and structured flexibility.

Whether you're a manager, supervisor, team leader or consultant, The Sky Is Not the Limit can help you achieve significant breakthroughs in performance and productivity. You can use its proven tips and techniques to lead your teams to new heights of excellence. Remember, the sky is not the limit-not for airplanes, not for this planet, not for our organizations and not for any of us!
