Go For Bold
by Rosie Yeo
Achieve the best possible future for your organisation with this winning approach to designing simple and powerful strategy.
Have you ever heard anyone say that their last strategy planning day was their best day ever? Of course you haven’t. We all know strategy is important, but it’s not easy to come up with the fresh ideas needed for success, let alone bring them to life.
Uncertainty about the future, the pressure of competition, risk aversion and those boring planning meetings we’re forced to sit through sap our confidence and enthusiasm and produce timid templates for maintaining status quo.
In Go For Bold, leading strategist Rosie Yeo offers a refreshing approach to designing powerful strategy in uncertain times.
A practical and inspiring guide for leaders, aspiring leaders and anyone who needs a future plan, this book shows how to harness a team’s innate creativity to bring to life bold, long-term strategy.
