Creating Exceptional
A Leader’s Guide

William F. Brandt, Jr.

A how-to book for business leaders providing the principles, processes and tools to build Exceptional Organizations.

The traditional view of economic reality holds that the pursuit of “self-interest” benefits not only individuals but also society. While this book acknowledges the past successes of this premise, it offers a new, more powerful paradigm: the simultaneous pursuit of both "self-interest" and "concern for others."

COMPASS provides a guide for behavior that reflects both the greatest aspirations of humankind and the reality of the world we live in. As a leader, you can act according to this “new paradigm” by creating exceptional organizations which are viable – achieving their purposes according to society’s highest values, sustainable over time, and valued by all.

Your members and employees will benefit by having a shared vision and understanding of your organization's aspirations and current realities. The book offers highly effective and universally applicable tools and processes, and a set of common beliefs, values, and language for interactions at all levels.

Filled with inspiring stories that support the creation of exceptional organizations, along with numerous essays designed to challenge the reader's outlook - COMPASS can be your catalyst to creating a viable, sustainable, and valued organization.
