About this item
Why are the New Zealand All Blacks the best rugby team in the world? How does the Kirov Ballet produce generation after generation of exceptional ballerinas? How did Southwest Airlines evolve from being an idiosyncratic Texan airline to become one of the most successful businesses internationally? Powerhouse answers these questions and explains how any organization can learn to adopt the same principles to drive their own performance. Through interviews with and research into successful leaders from organizations such as Toyota, Doctors Without Borders, Barcelona FC, and the Mayo Clinic, Powerhouse offers an insider's view of what makes these organizations great. The authors present an in-depth understanding of how high performance organizations are built, the characteristics that make them enduring, and the core capabilities they all share, including clarity of focus, engagement with their people, resilience, and a feedback-rich culture. Powerhouse reveals the key organizational capabilities leaders should foster in their own organizations and unveils a model with which any organization can build greatness and create sustained high performance.
