Abstract:

"The mythological phoenix, as described by the ancient Greeks, arose from the ashes every 500 years. In today's era of revolutionary, fast-paced change, companies and their people must continually reinvent their businesses and themselves. Against this backdrop, The Phoenix Agenda shows hard-pressed managers how to play an essential role in the rebirth and continual renewal of their companies." "In the face of a shifting set of workplace rules, constant turmoil, and job uncertainty, managers are challenged to adopt distinctively new roles while dramatically improving their personal and corporate performance. In response to a broad-based move to team-based flat organizations, managers must also manage by coaching, mentoring, and networking throughout the organization. The Phoenix Agenda shows managers how to move into these new roles while enabling their companies to work more effectively within the framework of high-performance work teams. The net result creates companies that are customer-centered, agile organizations." "Based on Whiteside's personal experiences with companies such as Digital, ITT, American Express, and Intel, The Phoenix Agenda reveals a proven, 12 step approach for effectively renewing companies in the face of turbulent change. The Agenda shows managers how to: generate trust; uncover context; invent the future; articulate strategies; source action; exploit moments of truth; maintain awareness; realize results; create wisdom; transcend addictions; complete the past; and acknowledge freely. Taken as a whole, the Agenda shows managers how to design, implement, and continually renew value systems and action plans that will create higher levels of performance for themselves and their teams." "In addition to the Agenda, Whiteside provides proven management skills for helping companies transform their organization. These practical skills include: how to create and sustain powerful relationships; how to dissolve problems; four ways to source and drive action; insights on becoming a Transformational Coach; dealing with the dark side of high performance; and how to turbocharge the basic tools of communication. Packed with first-person accounts and stories from companies such as NCR, Digital, Intel, Volvo and British Petroleum, The Phoenix Agenda delivers a powerful message for today's manager."--BOOK JACKET.
