On High Performance Organizations presents the best leadership thinking on creating strategic advantage and passion driven organizations. Part of the Leader to Leader Guides, which offer a wellspring of rich insight and information from top leadership thinkers, it provides readers with the tools for helping their organizations excel in effectiveness, sustaining growth, and strategy.

Drawn from the award-wining journal, Leader to Leader, On High Performance Organizations brings together Karl Weick, Frances Hesselbein, Scott Adams, Philip Kotler, James O'Toole and other thought leaders to offer practical guidance for those who seek to lead their organizations to high performance. This essential volume offers leaders a roadmap for organizational success by revealing how leaders employ people with a diversity of experience and opinion, support efforts to anticipate and embrace change, build productive work communities, and disperse leadership responsibility.

Each of the four volumes in the Leader to Leader Guides -- On Mission and Leadership, On Leading Change, On High Performance Organizations, and On Creativity, Innovation, and Renewal -- is organized around an essential topic with a diversity of views presented in clear, short chapters. These essential collections provide leaders with insight and inspiration to take their organizations to new levels of excellence.
