As a leader, you strive for greatness, pushing toward defining moments that have a lasting and positive impact. To achieve great things, you need a great team. One that can work together at their full potential. The #1 reason teams fail to hit their stride is that they’re lacking alignment.
Attrition, poor engagement, micromanaging, a political or passive-aggressive culture — these are all symptoms of an unaligned team.
Aligning your team will get you working together, on both an operational and cultural level, so everyone can perform at their best.
Successful communication leads to intentional action, which can only happen with enrollment. This book offers you a breakthrough in finding all three.
Radical Alignment offers a simple straightforward process to start and engage in difficult conversations. Jamieson and Gower have created a structure that actually makes you want to begin the conversations we so often shy away from. By the end of the introduction, I was ready to jump into the process with both feet. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an accessible, pragmatic method to becoming a better communicator.
As a person who grew up in a household where healthy, collaborative communication was sorely lacking, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this book. As a result of my childhood, it took me decades to learn just the basics of productive conversation and communication in my personal and professional life. I highly recommend this book if you’ve struggled to feel heard or understood, and want a roadmap to deepen your connection with the people in your life.
I can’t even tell you how many people I’ve recommended the process in this book to. If you need to have a difficult conversation, get on the same page, or decide whether or not to move forward with someone or something, this book provides a seamless roadmap so that everything that needs to be said is said and you can feel assured and aligned in your decisions.
In this marvelous, beautifully written, accessible and deeply felt book, Alex Jamieson and Bob Gower offer a unique and nuanced perspective on what real conversations entail. In avoiding clichés, they broach a very difficult subject with startling honesty, insight, depth and clarity. I highly recommend it to anyone who is tired of the ordinary and/or looking to take their relationships to the next level. And I would recommend it to anyone within an organization who is truly invested in meaningful collaboration.
Bob Gower and Alex Jamieson have written a terrific guide for having hard conversations — digestible, usable, and welcoming. RADICAL ALIGNMENT provides a clean structure that ensures our messiest conversations can be productive.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are about so much more than hiring and compensation. It’s about changing the way teams and individuals interact so we are able to truly hear each other and benefit from the variety of perspectives at the table. Too often in my work I see leaders and organizations neglect this crucial aspect of DEI. In this accessible and readable book, Alex and Bob provide a simple set of tools that will help you and your team align and thrive.
Alex and Bob have incredible insight into the human mind and how different people communicate— so it’s no surprise that their writing is incredibly clear and helpful. Their methodology for improving people’s alignment at work and in life will change the way you think forever.
So many of the challenges we face in our work—and personal lives—come down to people misunderstanding each other. Bob and Alex have created a powerful framework to help us bridge this divide.
Magic happens when groups of people harness their intention and strengths for a common goal. And RADICAL ALIGNMENT helps you do just that.
The quality of your empathy directly correlates to the quality of information you can gather, and the resulting quality of decisions you make. Understanding people’s challenges, intentions, and often conflicting goals will enable you to create high-performing teams and better collaborations. This book will show you the way.
