New book: “7 Business Habits That Drive High Performance”
Insync CEO Nicholas Barnett has launched his second book.
After surveying 100,000 employees from around 200 organisations over a five-year period, including interviewing 10 CEOs of high performance organisations Nicholas Barnett utilises his ground breaking research to find out what organisations of any size can do to increase productivity, performance & profitability.
The research uncovered that sustainable high performance was not fuelled by downsizing, outsourcing, cost-cutting or re-structuring, but was about consistently adopting seven interrelated and indispensable habits across the whole company:
• Habit 1: Live an inspiring vision
• Habit 2: Communicate clear strategies and goals
• Habit 3: Develop your people
• Habit 4: Go out of your way to recognise your people
• Habit 5: Genuinely care for your people
• Habit 6: Listen and adapt to your customers’ needs
• Habit 7: Continually improve your systems
Dr Brian McNamee AO wrote the book’s forward and said: “I am delighted to write the Foreword to this book because the 7 Business Habits gel so strongly with my own experience during my 23 years as Chief Executive Office and Managing Director of CSL, a leading global specialist biotechnology group. At CSL, I endeavoured to practise and to achieve simplicity and clarity of message. This book provides a simple and clear message – if you want to increase your organisation’s performance, adopt and live the 7 Business Habits.”
