A classic on what makes organizations’ exceptional, Good to Great is based on Collin’s study of successful companies and what made them so. To his surprise (and chagrin) Collins found that great organizations had great leaders. But these aren’t the attention seeking, high profile narcissists who crave the spotlight (and often destroy their organizations in the process). According to Good to Great, great leaders are humble yet have an iron will to succeed. They lead their organizations to focus on areas where they can excel, becoming more than just competent but exceptional in the process. They recognize that change is an incremental process, and that in order to succeed it takes many hands pushing on a metaphorical flywheel that builds speed over time, capitalizing on the momentum of success.
