How do you achieve excellence in a world of growing complexity and rapid technology? The first step is a thirst for excellence. This is the motivation to achieve quality in whatever you do. Around the world consultants have combined insights from behavioural sciences to train people in achieving excellence in various realms. But excellence requires skills in various areas.
In Skills for Excellence, the author has brought together within one volume most of the ideas and practices which are being taught in enterprises around the world. The book starts with achievement motivation and shows how, as research has proved, this skill can be cultivated and developed. The other skills presented in this book are innovativeness drawn from the ideas of Peter Drucker and others; thinking skills from concepts developed by Edward de Bono; a problem solving technique devised by Rudolf Flesch; creativity as taught by Robert Fritz.
