I recently received a copy of a new book from my good friend Doug Conant called “The Blueprint – 6 Practical Steps to Lift Your Leadership to New Heights“. Doug was the CEO of the Campbell Soup Company when I was at Procter & Gamble and he now is the Founder of ConantLeadership.
The book focuses on the results of a transformational journey by Doug to formulate his corporate experiences into six areas that ultimately helped to take his leadership to new heights. They are:
Reach High – Envision
Dig Deep – Reflect
Lay the Groundwork – Study
Design – Plan
Build – Practice
Reinforce – Improve
In his book, Doug arms leaders who feel overwhelmed or stuck with these steps that are both manageable and incremental. If you are in a leadership position, or, are planning to be in one; this book is must-read for you.
