Making Remarkable: How to Deliver Purpose, Inspire People and Build a Platform for Exceptional Results
by Adam Legge
Leaders wake up each morning wanting to create impact, achieve results, and make a difference; in short, they want to make their organization remarkable. But becoming remarkable is increasingly difficult in a world of disruptive change, limited resources and intense competition. Or perhaps things have become a bit stale, having missed the signs, signals and trends that are requiring leaders transform their organization into something that is modern and dynamic. Whatever the reason, many organizations struggle with achieving remarkability in a time when that’s what is needed and demanded.
How can a leader lift their organization to the top of its game and ensure that it not only survives but thrives? In Making Remarkable: How to Deliver Purpose, Inspire People and Build a Platform for Exceptional Results, Adam Legge brings over twenty years of experience helping leaders, executives and boards move their organizations to remarkable. He shares with you a framework for the modern, dynamic high-performing organization and how to get it there. It is part blueprint and part assembly manual. It is a rendering of what your organization needs to be and have in place—the foundations for long-term remarkable performance.
Making Remarkable will help leaders to:
- Craft and live a solid purpose – through brand, culture and values
- Inspire people to achieve remarkable performance – through a high-performing board of directors and team
- Build a platform to deliver impact and value – through the value proposition, business model, strategy, performance management, technology and finances
The three pillars of remarkability—Purpose, People and Platform—are the DNA of the modern and dynamic organization. The book breaks down each pillar into its eight elements and provides detailed insight and guidance as to how to get your organization to the optimal performance for each. Each chapter includes a resource kit, and a series of diagnostic questions that will enable you to assess your organization’s remarkability.
In the book, Adam lays out not only the framework, but how to lead through change and complexity, and how to build an approach that will keep your organization constantly adapting and thriving. Drawing on a rich career of organizational leadership, including most recently as President and CEO of the Calgary Chamber, Making Remarkable gives you the insights, tools, frameworks, and stories you will need to move your organization to remarkable—one that will attract the best talent, that will create raving and loyal fans, will generate repeat business and will have impacts greater than you would have thought possible.
