Hit The Ground Running
A Manual for New Leaders
by Jason Jennings

Hit The Ground Running: A Manual for New Leaders is Jason Jennings latest book from Portfolio, the business imprint of Penguin Group.

The book profiles and reveals the tactics and strategies of the American CEO's who've created the greatest amount of economic value since the year 2000. Companies and CEO's profiled include: JM Smucker, Harris Corporation, Mohawk Industries, Humana, Goodrich, Hanover Insurance, Allegheny Technologies, Staples and Questar.

Jason and his research team spent nearly three years identifying the companies and interviewing their CEO's. Jason says that as they studied the CEO's and companies three things became obvious:

" All of the CEOs produced results fast.
They didnt dawdle around for an eternity before making things happen. They truly hit the ground running.
" Each is guided by rules that defy conventional thinking.
While they were able to diagnose underperformance quickly, stop any bleeding, build a plan, get buy-in and implement needed changes fast their rules were different than those weve been told are the best practices of an aggressive, tough-minded, high achieving executive.
" They make everyone proud.
What each CEO did and the rules they used to do it were right for investors, right for employees, right for the community, right for the short run and right for the long run. They didnt need any spin or any "the ends justify the means" rationalizations.

The book contains all the golden rules for hitting the ground running.

Like Jason's previous best-selling books on business and leadership this book is jammed with hundreds of practical takeaway tips and advice on the right ways to grow and build an enduring business.

Jason is already beginning to use the discoveries he and his team made into his in-demand keynote speech, The Four Secrets of the World's Best Performing Companies.

Jason and his team spent eighteen months crunching numbers to find these best performing CEOs. Each was evaluated on revenue, earnings and share price growth.

The CEOs identified head a rich mix of companies:

" Jeff Lorberbaum, the CEO of Mohawk the world's largest floor covering company
" Mike McCallister, the CEO of Humana a health insurance company
" Howard Lance, CEO of Harris Corp. develops and manufactures high tech communications products
" Marshall Larsen, CEO ofGoodrich this former tire maker is a worldwide leader in the aerospace industry
