They explain how the 10X elixir of peak performance comes from learning to function naturally with the ‘SHARP’ principles, and how all five areas must be focused on in order to succeed. This book is innovate and concise. It will help leaders raise their game and also give them the best chance of enjoying the synergy of performance multiplication.
