Power of Strategic Commitment — Interview Intro

I’m catching up on some great material — at least great IMHO — that has been locked away in my notebook. Last month, I got a chance to talk strategy with Josh Leibner and Gershon Mader, founding partners of Quantum Performance, Inc.   They have worked with Fortune 500 companies around the world including: Capital One, Cisco, The United Way, AT&T, Campbell Soup, and others. 

What prompted our discussion was the recent release of their book (with co-author Alan Weiss), The Power of Strategic Commitment: Achieving Extraordinary Results Through TOTAL Alignment and Engagement.  We had an excellent chat that centered on four topics:

  1. What are the symptoms of a commitment-phobic initiative or organization?
  2. How can one maintain motivation and ownership across diverse groups of stakeholders?
  3. What should new managers focus on to be “strategic”?
  4. Why hasn’t HR been able to play a more constructive role in strategy?
