Farther, Faster, and Far Less Drama offers a simple but powerful set of leadership behaviors to align teams and accelerate progress.

Fom team leaders to consultants to stay-at-home parents, everyone wishes life could be less complex, but that often feels impossible. 

Janice and Jason Fraser introduce the Four Leadership Motions, a method they have been using for decades to help all kinds of teams make fast, meaningful progress—including Navy SEALs, startup CEOs, and Fortune 100 executives.

With the Four Leadership Motions, you will set and achieve goals faster, make complex situations more manageable, and create momentum even during overwhelming circumstances. The book calls on readers to:
  • Orient honestly to understand the complexities of any situation 
  • Value outcomes more than plans, activities, or deliverables
  • Leverage the brains by tapping the right people and maximizing their contribution
  • Make durable decisions by eliminating the two pernicious kinds of waste  

Farther, Faster, and Far Less Drama offers theory alongside hands-on exercises, formulas, and frameworks that can all be adapted to real-life situations in both professional and personal contexts. The world around you might constantly be in flux, but you don’t have to be. With this book, you’ll be empowered to make efficient progress with less stress—every single day.
