Building the Pyramid Overview
UPDATE– Building the Pyramid is a CMI Management Book of the Year. The competition is organised by the Chartered Management Institute in conjunction with Henley Business School and the British Library.
Building the Pyramid describes The Winning Formula® approach to delivering success on your organisation’s growth journey.
Steering an organisation on its unique growth journey is one of the biggest personal challenges facing all leaders. Although the end goal, the destination may stay the same, the conditions experienced on the journey will be different within six months and different again within a year.
Why? Because internal and external issues and events will constantly change the commercial landscape in which the organisation operates.
Navigating the landscape has become the new core requirement of the 21st century leader. To deliver success, a more flexible, adaptable leadership approach is needed to keep everyone connected with the organisation on track - a framework that adapts to changing conditions on the journey.
Building the Pyramid demonstrates the winning (formula)® framework in action, through the use of a simple story set in ancient Egypt. It is an original interpretation of the challenges facing leaders and how success can be achieved.
Lessons learned on the Pharaoh’s journey include how to:
- Attract, recruit and retain talent
- Lead the ‘change’ required to deliver success
- Harness the power of vision and values
- Increase levels of engagement across the organisation
- Build a positive workplace culture
- Align strategy to operational performance
- Inspire others to maximise their potential
More importantly, Building the Pyramid demonstrates how to successfully navigate colleagues on the journey towards the creation of a more agile, successful and sustainable organisation.
The book includes client case studies, practical checklists, development models, personal exercises and hundreds of useful tips and pieces of performance advice to help the reader deliver success on the growth journey.
