A summary of LeadFirst’s latest book describing how a group of exemplar firms with broad stakeholder models and exceptional Organizational Capital profiles have outperformed the Good to Great companies as well as the S&P 500 by wide margins.
CEO Questioning

This paper presents the benefits of balancing a problem solving approach to leadership with a more positive “possibility thinking” mentality. Both are important, but focusing exclusively on problems – what is broken and how to fix it – is not a path to greatness. The paper presents evidence of the benefits of a balanced approach and provides specific implementation guidance through the questions leaders ask and the dialogue they create.

Customer Value, like Organizational Culture, is an intangible asset that contributes mightily to a firm’s shareholder value. As an intangible asset, it is typically under-represented on a firm’s books yet is crucial to its success. This paper makes the case for Customer Value as a reliable predictor of shareholder value and poses a practical approach to measuring it.
