In Hit the Ground Running, Jason Jennings introduces us to America's best performing new CEOs who pulled off the most impressive transformations of the decade. They doubled revenues, more than tripled earnings per share, and doubled their company's net profit margins. The book profiles and reveals the tactics and strategies of the American CEOs who've created the greatest amount of economic value since the year 2000. Companies and CEO's profiled include: JM Smucker, Harris Corporation, Mohawk Industries, Humana, Goodrich, Hanover Insurance, Allegheny Technologies, Staples and Questar. Jennings and his research team spent nearly three years identifying the companies and interviewing their CEOs. Jennings says that as they studied the CEOs and companies three things became obvious: ● All of the CEOs produced results fast. They didn’t dawdle around for an eternity before making things happen. They truly hit the ground running. ● Each is guided by rules that defy conventional thinking. While they were able to diagnose underperformance quickly, stop any bleeding, build a plan, get buy-in and implement needed changes fast – their rules were different than those we’ve been told are the best practices of an aggressive, tough-minded, high achieving executive. ● They make everyone proud. ● What each CEO did and the rules they used to do it were right for investors, right for employees, right for the community, right for the short run and right for the long run. They didn’t need any spin or any "the ends justify the means" rationalizations. After interviewing and analyzing the stories of these top leaders, Jennings delivers their hard- earned, battle-tested strategies, which will inspire any new leader to take the helm and start delivering. ● When Richard and Tim Smucker were appointed co-CEOs of The J. M. Smucker Company, they shared their strategy with everyone and got them on board with their mission. Since then, Smucker's went on to dominate the markets and bring in billions of dollars of new business. ● Mike McCallister, the CEO of a twenty-billion-dollar health-services giant, decided to stop pretending and publicly admit that health insurance is broken. Humana began to replace a crippled, complex, and confusing system with one that works and has more than tripled revenues, earnings, and share price since McCallister took over. ● By processing change in bite-size pieces, Jeffrey Lorberbaum led Mohawk Industries through twenty successful acquisitions and turned his family's carpet-making business into the largest flooring company in the world. Filled with engaging stories and lessons from the cream of the crop, Hit the Ground Running will help new leaders at every level balance short- and long-term goals as well as the needs of shareholders, employees, customers, and the community. At a tumultuous time in business, this book makes a smart appeal to the new generation of leaders. Though his research comes from a pre-crash environment, business writer Jennings (Less is More) derives rules from interviews with 10 highly successful CEOs based in solid, honest values like simplification, communication and cooperation: Rule 1: Don’t Deceive Yourself—You Will Reap What You Sow Rule 2: Gain Belief Rule 3: Ask for Help Rule 4: Find, Keep, and Grow the Right People Rule 5: See Through the Fog Rule 6: Drive a Stake in the Ground Rule 7: Simplify Everything Rule 8: Be Accountable Rule 9: Cultivate a Fierce Sense of Urgency Rule 10: Be a Fish Out of Water In short, this book is a Q&A with the "most successful CEOs of our day." Jennings discusses what made their histories, what made them successful and what ideas, methods, and beliefs they feel contributed to their success. This is an excellent book for readers who want to learn from the experience of others. How to Step Up Without Messing Up： Renowned business author, speaker and consultant Jason Jennings has been running companies and teaching leaders how to improve their job performance for more than 20 years. In his latest book, Hit the Ground Running: A Manual for New Leaders, Jennings develops a list of 10 “golden rules” that leaders can use while guiding organizations of any size. To create these rules, Jennings and his research team studied 10 top executives at nine companies who were able to transform their organizations with the strategies he describes. The CEOs Jennings studies in his book are role models for other leaders. They created economic value for their shareholders and their organizations better than anyone else by balancing short-term goals with their long-term plans. Great CEOs ： To find these great CEOs, Jennings and his team of researchers looked for leaders with at least three years of experience in the top spot, those who lead companies with great corporate reputations and those who are still in the CEO post today. They also looked for companies whose share price increased while the CEO was in place. The people the research turned up were above-average leaders who nearly doubled revenues, more than tripled earnings per share between 2001 and 2007, and doubled net profit margins for their companies. These leaders include: Allegheny Technologies’ Patrick Hassey; BF Goodrich’s Marshall Larsen; The Hanover Group’s Frederick Eppinger; Mohawk Industries Jeffrey Lorberbaum; Richard and Tim Smucker, the co-CEOs of The J. M. Smucker Company; and four other top CEOs who created more shareholder value than all of their peers. From their experiences, Jennings compiles 10 rules all CEOs should take to heart. The first rule Jennings explores in Hit the Ground Running is, “Don’t deceive yourself — you will reap what you sow.” He exemplifies this story with Smucker’s long history of leadership greatness and the leaders who make it happen. To explain the company’s success, Tim Smucker says that “if you put in a hard day’s work [focused on serving your customers] you will benefit from your labors.” By showing how the two Smucker brothers took control of their father’s company and used this law of reciprocity by working by consensus in a 100-year-old company, Jennings describes a company and a culture committed to customers and dedicated to living one’s beliefs. ‘See Through the Fog’ ： Through the story of Pat Hassey, the CEO of Allegheny Technologies Inc., Jennings offers another important rule that can help a leader get off on the right foot: “See through the fog.” By helping people find these essential elements while leading them through uncertainty, Hassey’s example shows all leaders how to build teams and align divisions by keeping people aware of what’s happening in their world. Through straightforward examples like these, Jennings breaks down the complexities of business leadership into real stories and basic principles any leader can use to make an organization great and rise above its peers.
