How many times have you heard a leader say, “Our people are our greatest asset”? You’ve probably even uttered it a few times yourself. It’s a nice sentiment, but really doesn’t tell the full story. Simply having an organization full of stellar individuals is ultimately less important than how they function together.
In his new book, Get Better: 15 Proven Practices to Build Effective Relationships at Work, FranklinCovey’s Chief People Officer, Todd Davis, explains that while an organization’s greatest assets are indeed its people, it’s actually the relationships between those people that truly become the organization’s ultimate competitive advantage.
Get Better is a practical guide for anyone looking to create a competitive advantage for any size and type of organization by building effective relationships. Davis describes the most common relationship pitfalls that negatively affect personal careers and organizational results. He identifies 15 proven practices that influential leaders use to improve the quality of interactions with others and master the skills of effective relationships.
Todd Davis has been with FranklinCovey for over 20 years, and currently serves as chief people officer and executive vice president and is responsible for FranklinCovey’s global talent development. Davis has delivered numerous keynote addresses and speeches at top industry conferences and associations, annual corporate events, and for FranklinCovey clients, many of which are Fortune® 100 and 500 companies.
