Tom Northup's mantra of "Easy to say. Hard to do", equates to practice, practice, practice! Can't have too much. Most authors don't bother caring about the reader's outcomes. Tom clearly does care. Poor execution will sabotage strategy every time. He treats the complex subject of Strategic Development with a practical approach, one that makes it realistic for the reader to implement. He has broken it down into bite-size chunks, executable initiatives that ordinary folks can handle.Mr. Northup knows what he's talking about, having been there and done that himself. His enthusiasm for effective leadership jumps from every chapter. Tom makes it clear that the evolution of the organization is dependent on the personal growth and evolution of the Leader.
