About this item
Creating robust team and organizational improvement can be daunting--like a magician who must pull a rabbit out of a hat! Unfortunately, what often results is more a Performance-Eating Rabbit, which is not cute or cuddly, and is not pulled from a hat. This rabbit emerges from a different orifice...and has one priority: to devour and destroy the hoped-for performance in an organization. The authors of Performance-Eating Rabbits describe seven types of these rabbits and share the behaviors, along with unique methods and innovative tools used to mitigate their destruction, while also harnessing their power.
In a jovial, frank style, they use story and metaphor to help create new possibilities and ways of working to get better results. Each chapter is followed by a self-reflection activity, and the authors share some of their own anecdotes, applying the concepts to real-life challenges--or the wild, crazy and elusive "rabbits." There are also opportunities to practice the tools and principles of each chapter and apply them to a current situation--creating an action plan to leverage what the reader has just experienced.
