Description

"A fresh, effective, and enduring way to lead starting with your next interaction. Most leaders feel the inevitable interruptions in their jam-packed days are troublesome. But in TouchPoints, Conant and Norgaard argue that these--and every point of contact with other people--are overlooked opportunities for leaders to increase their impact and promote their organization's strategy and values. Through previously untold stories from Conant's tenure as CEO of Campbell Soup Company and Norgaard's vast consulting experience, the authors show that a leader's impact and legacy are built through hundreds, even thousands, of interactive moments in time. The good news is that anyone can develop "TouchPoint" mastery by focusing on four essential components: head, heart, hands and touch. Promotes a new intuitive model of rational, active, and wise leadership practices. Shows how the authenticity of a leader is tested during every informal interaction, every day. Introduces four integrated commitments that are foundational to mastering the TouchPoints: the commitment to inquiry, reflection, practice, and continuous improvement. Compelling and transformative, this book shows how TouchPoint mastery can turn otherwise ordinary moments into powerful opportunities for influence with lasting impact--one TouchPoint at a time."--Provided by publisher.

Praise for TouchPoints "A profoundly relevant book on the fundamental power of human connections--and how it drives lasting change for every leader, every time." --Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The Leader in Me "Being an effective executive in today's over-scheduled, fast-paced 'interruption age' is not mutually exclusive with being an accessible and engaged leader. Indeed, recognizing that everyday 'TouchPoints' represent opportunities to teach and to enhance corporate culture is a prerequisite for success." --Duncan Niederauer, CEO, NYSE Euronext "Doug Conant has proven himself to be a very disciplined CEO - focused, able to let go of what doesn't fit, building greatness step-by-step, laying foundations for decades down the road while delivering results today. His example shows how effective business leadership can be quiet and bold, studious and decisive, disciplined and creative. He and Mette Norgaard make a great team for bringing these leadership lessons to the world." --Jim Collins, author, Good to Great "Like much of the best advice, TouchPoints makes immediate good sense; and taking it won't even add to your workload." --Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO, WPP "Leave it to Conant and Norgaard to define the future of leadership. In this brilliant new view, they uncover hidden opportunities we each have to turn everyday 'warm moments' into powerful venues for breakthrough thinking in your organization. This book makes all the rest seem old and tired." --Faith Popcorn, CEO of BrainReserve, futurist, and bestselling author "Conant and Norgaard reveal the secrets of great leadership. Yes, hard skills count, but soft skills - deftly managing a conversation, caring about the people around you, posing the perfect question in a crisis - make all the difference. This practical and insightful book shows how to transform the behaviors and results around you." --Daniel H. Pink, author, Drive and A Whole New Mind "A superb leadership guide." --Bill George, author of True North
