Leadership and Diversity
The Progress Challenge is just that, a challenge – a challenge to progress, a challenge to work and win in this complicated, stress-encouraging, wonderful world of continual, radical change. Meeting The Progress Challenge:
Establishes and Cements Customer Loyalty
Attracts New Business and Generates Quality Referrals
Leads to Career Development and Life Balance
Creates Better leaders, Better Team Members, Better Human Beings.
There is a powerful and important connection between solid leadership, sales success, personal motivation, and customer loyalty. All are achieved by effectively positioning ideas, recommendations, solutions, products, services – even ourselves – as progress in the minds of those we wish to inspire to action. This book offers a fresh and powerful blueprint for meeting this Progress Challenge. In it’s pages, you’ll learn how to enhance your opportunities by implementing and using Dean Lindsay’s Six Ps of Progress. However, simply learning how to enhance your opportunities is NOT the goal. The goal is to actually enhance your opportunities in your life and work. Learning should not lead to simply knowing. Learning should lead to action.
