GPS For Your Organisation is a practical guide to help company boards, CEOs and leadership teams add clarity and gain ongoing buy-in to their organisation’s long-term direction, purpose and values. It will also add focus and urgency to an organisation’s strategic and business plans. In this book, Nicholas Barnett shows readers how they can develop, communicate and embed their own Guidance and Positioning Statements (GPS) into their organisation’s culture, messaging and DNA. This will energise employees and help build sustainable high performance. The process can be applied to all types and sizes of organisations from start-ups to well-established organisations and also to subsidiaries and divisions of large organisations.
“Thanks, Nicholas, for teaching us about the power of Guidance and Positioning Statements. With the clarity of an effective organisational GPS, we can all be more successful as leaders in creating high performing organisations.” - Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Manager®
