Ruthless Consistency: How Committed LeadersExecute Strategy, Implement Change, and Build Organizations That Win


About the Book

According to Harvard Business Review, “most studies still show a 60-70% failure rate for organizational change projects―a statistic that has stayed constant from the 1970s to the present.” Drawing on his 20+ years of experience as a strategy + execution consultant specializing in midsize companies, Michael Canic helps committed leaders drive the odds in their favor.



In Ruthless Consistency, Michael identifies the three surprising reasons most strategic change initiatives fail:

Leaders’ decisions and actions aren’t relentlessly aligned with their intentions.

Leaders are self-centered; they overlook what their people are experiencing.

Leaders aren’t as committed as they think they are or need to be.

He then details what you need to do to become one of the successful few, not the failed many.
