POISED® for Results: Amplify Your Strengths and Lead Your Team and Organization to Sustained, Elevated Results

POISED for Results offers a comprehensive, effective, and efficient model for organizational leadership and individual and team growth and development. 

Navigating each element of the POISED process, with examples from experience, relatable historical stories, and specific recommendations, POISED for Results engages the reader and provides an eminently useful structure for successful team engagement, strategy development and execution, and continuous growth.

Dr. Scott’s expertise in leading, training, and guiding teams provides a seasoned educator’s perspective, and combines with Mark’s global business and organizational leadership experience to reach readers of all backgrounds and experiences. Newer leaders seeking a direction and seasoned leaders eager to finetune their skills will appreciate and take away tools and processes while stimulating thinking for immediate application. 

The results of the POISED model as explained in POISED for Results will accrue in multiple dimensions: individual growth as a leader, a significant increase in team-member engagement by driving “optimal stress” for success and, ultimately, results that come from maximizing organization effectiveness in an efficient manner with focused leadership.
