Note: Get Things Done was Brad's
first book on organizational leadership. In January of 2009 he
published his major work in this area,
Get Out of the Way! You'll never manage your way to great leadership.
In our opinion, Get Out of the Way! is the seminal work on
From the evidence presented, Brad may be one of
the world's top experts in how to get things done, especially
within the small team environment. In this book he shares how he
has been successful by presenting ten of his most important
secrets for creating and leading exceptional teams. As Brad
says, "You only get difficult things done through the efforts
of the exceptional team."
Brad describes himself as a maverick, a practitioner scholar, who
has acquired his knowledge and developed his skills through
"hands on" experience. There's no doubt that Get Things Done
contains concepts never before presented in any book on
leadership and team building. He's not afraid to challenge the
"current wisdom" of the leadership community. Here's some
examples of just how he does that:
It isn't possible for management to recognize leaders in their midst
... they speak different languages.
Telling your team not to make any assumptions, "Don't
assume," is the height of management ignorance.
Leaders embrace the unexpected, welcome surprises.
If you're tired of "same old, same old" leadership writing, you
won't be disappointed with Get Things Done.
"Any manager looking to increase productivity, loyalty, and
success rate needs to open Brad's book. His guidance and
methodologies have been a significant factor in not only my
personal success but more importantly in the success of the
teams I have led."
Stephen Balkum, Vice President of Technology
