The Strategic MVP is a culmination of 30 years of work in the field of executive coaching to find the most effective team exercises. Mark Thompson and Brandi Stankovic looked at what's relevant in today's swiftly changing environment and created concepts for you to practically integrate into your daily regime. In addition, they added thoughts from many of their clients who are among the world's top CEOs. Many of them are household names, including Elizabeth Smith, Warren Buffett, Maya Hu-Chan, Jim Collins, Charles Schwab, Sir Richard Branson, and our new partner, Alan Mulally. Each of these experienced executives generously shared with their insights across the landscape of leadership, from personal improvement or best hiring practices to advice on how to focus on the most meaningful priorities. They've assembled 52 exercises - one for every week - in a simple format that enables you to build your leadership mojo throughout the year. Too many leadership and coaching books settle on telling you what to do or what worked for others. This book is designed for you and your team to do the practical work necessary to take your team from good to great despite all odds and to become the best you can be.
