Work That Counts

Breaking Down the Barriers to Extraordinary Results

by Richard Lee

  • Why read?

    Management gurus will tell you that you need to overhaul your entire organization in order to maximize its full potential, but that is simply not true: You only need to give your people the tools to succeed inside it.

    The framework outlined in Work That Counts draws on examples from teams he has worked with at the world’s most cutting edge, disruptive companies, and provides practical solutions to the problems that hold people back in nearly every organization. Among other critical skills, you’ll learn:

      •  How a team leader can hold team members accountable without micromanaging–and what team members need to do concurrently to earn the team leader’s trust.   •  How to get support for your objectives from other teams, even when they don’t report to you or your division or your business unit.   •  How to partner with others, within your team and on other teams, to achieve the results you want.
