"Every CEO should make this required reading for every employee. After 20 years of turning around the results of companies, I only wish I had this on my recommended reading list for clients earlier. Uncommon sense that will turn any organization into a Thank God It's Monday Results Rule Workplace!"

"Become more aerodynamic. That's what Laura Stack helps her reader to do with her tremendously practical book, SuperCompetent. Consider the racing industry. In all of its various forms cars, bikes, humans, horses the principle of aerodynamics rules. Some of the smallest design changes can elevate performance monumentally. In my work with high-performing, high-potential leaders, I have found time and again that increasing effectiveness is almost singularly hinged upon decreasing interference. Simple? Perhaps. Easy? Not so much. Effective? Without a doubt. Using Laura's Six Keys, a leader can identify, diagnose, and understand specific sources of interference. Using the numerous practical tips Laura provides with each of those Six Keys, that leader can then work ruthlessly to reduce each source to perform at his or her productive best."
