by Alli Durfee | July 24th, 2018


BetterBook of the Month Author, John Spence, has made a career of reading and recognizing patterns. While serving as a 26-year-old CEO for an International Rockefeller Foundation, one of the first patterns John recognized was how his success was directly tied to the number of books he read. Today, John has managed to read over 4,000 books all while being on the road 200 days out of the year- coaching leaders and businesses up on what it takes to be successful.

From working with Fortune 500 companies to small businesses, and everyone in between, John’s formula makes the very complex…AWESOMELY SIMPLE.

Build Strategy With AWESOMELY SIMPLE

In his book, AWESOMELY SIMPLE, Spence helps you take a hard look at your business and evaluate how it is succeeding in the six areas most critical for lasting success. Every organization, no matter its size or industry, must excel in cultivating:

  1. Vivid Vision
  2. Best People
  3. A Performance-Oriented Culture
  4. Robust Communication
  5. A Strong Sense of Urgency
  6. Extreme Customer Focus

Spence breaks down each of these principles into readily understandable action items. He offers countless examples, tools, and strategies to help individuals and companies bridge their “knowing-doing gap.”

AWESOMELY SIMPLE outlines how to develop a tailored strategy in easy-to-follow steps that will allow you to measure and dramatically improve the success of your company.
