"For 21st-century success, you can't afford to remain comforable," says Ball. "Nor can you survive in a reactive mode. To get ahead you have to set goals. You have to have a systematic plan for achieving them. Creating and managing a culture where you methodically grow the way you want to takes careful, persistent efforts. And, with so much change, leaders need to help people get back to time-proven methods. That's where DNA Leadership fits in. What could be more elegant and dynamic than our own cell structure or more fundamental than our own DNA?"

DNA Leadership correlates to the biological principles of cell theory and DNA. It provides a control panel leaders can use to motivate individuals to achieve common purposes and objectives. The cells in our bodies are the ultimate expression of teamwork, buy-in, and proactive pursuit of a common mission. Although each cell is highly specialized and self-directed, it must communicate with other cells and do its job flawlessly or the whole system is at risk.

It is the same in business. Only the "cells" we have to work with are not cells of humans, they are humans. The central strategy in DNA Leadership is to integrate everyone into a self-managed, self-directed, self-motivated, and self-improving system-where individuals contribute not because they have to, but because they want to.

"Most people are intelligent, but only some are successful," writes Ball. "And the best-kept secret is that successful organizations and people find and follow methods for everything they do."

The methods in this book get back to disciplined nuts-and-bolts basics in setting goals and in implementing action plans to methodically create the future. Apply a few ideas and you will get immediate results. Study and apply the concepts completely and you will substantially increase your lifetime accomplishments and the growth and profits of your business.

If you are seeking a better approach for building your company and for pursuing business and personal goals with greater results, here it is.

About the Author:

James R. Ball, "Jim" to everyone, is the president and co-founder of The Goals Institute, a company that helps individuals and businesses achieve their potential through goal achievement.

Starting early in life as a clerk in his father's grocery story in the small steel town of Sharon, Pennsylvania, Jim experienced firsthand the characteristics to mold success. Putting himself through college at Youngstown State University while working all shifts in the steel mill, Jim graduated with a degree in accounting.

Jim began his professional career as a staff accountant at Arthur Andersen and over a sixteen-year career worked his way up to becoming the managing partner of one of Andersen's fastest growing offices serving emerging businesses and high technology firms.

Jim left Andersen to become the co-founder and managing partner of a venture capital firm that helped launch and grow over twenty companies including The Discovery Channel. Jim served on the board of many of these companies and helped them grow and develop. As John Hendricks, the founder and CEO of Discovery Communications (The Discovery Channel) puts it: "Jim is an authority on goal power."

Jim knows what it takes to set and achieve goals and he will show you how you can, too.
