My friend Jesse Lyn Stoner and Ken Blanchard have revised and expanded their popular book Full Steam Ahead! Through a beautifully written, engaging story about two people who are struggling to create visions—both for the company where they work and for their own lives—Blanchard and Stoner detail the essential elements of creating a successful vision. In Full Steam Ahead! you’ll learn:
  • How to use the power of vision to get focused, get energized and get great results
  • How to create a vision that touches the hearts and spirits of everyone in your organization
  • How to create a vision for your own life that provides meaning and direction
This new edition is thoroughly revised, with a new chapter on sustaining your vision, updated examples, more information on creating vision for teams, and a new section that includes a vision assessment and a game plan for creating a shared vision.

"This story provides a wonderful road map through the very important territory of vision that can move into action.  I found myself recalling many details of the journey well after I put the book down--it stayed vividly in my memory.  A powerful, simple guide for a journey we all need to take."
—Margaret J. Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science and Walk Out Walk On “For those who … extract the lessons from this wonderfully powerful and simple book and put it into practice, the rewards will be extraordinary.”—from the introduction by Patrick Lencioni, President of The Table Group and author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team You can purchase the book at Berrett-Koehler.
