Everyone can be a high performer, according to Jerry Fletcher. Not just in occasional, heroic bursts of success, but consistently, in everything we do. It's not a matter of imitating star athletes or successful entrepreneurs. In fact, you just have to be fully yourself at your best. The key to energized performance, heightened creativity, and consistent excellence lies in discovering our individual high performance pattern. This is the distinctive sequence of steps we naturally follow when we are at our best: when we feel enthusiastic; when work flows easily; and when results exceed our expectations. Through 16 illuminating case studies, Jerry Fletcher shows how people can discover and apply their high performance patterns to sustain outstanding results in a variety of complex, real-life situations, such as choosing the right person for a job; finding ways for individuals and teams to get the job done faster and better; improving problem relationahips; and reducing time spent on supervision, control and checking up on people.
