Break Through To Yes

Unlocking the Possible within a Culture of Collaboration

by David B. Savage

The traditional hierarchy of business leadership is being proven more and more each year to be unsustainable. In an economy where innovation is king, companies find it much more difficult to create competitive advantage when ideas, solutions, and strategies flow from the top down. In Break Through to Yes, Dave Savage offers ten steps to heading a company in the right direction.

  1. Set Intentions – Declare your honest purpose
  2. Be Aware – Engaging other with an open heart
  3. Embrace Conflict – Seek out those that speak out
  4. Seek Diversity – Bring in many perspectives
  5. Design the Collaboration – Imagine success and create the right container
  6. Come Together – Engage with respect and trust
  7. Listen Deeply – Realize what wants to be heard but is not spoken
  8. Collaborate with Vision – Tap into the collective wisdom
  9. Now Lead with purpose and accountability
  10. Make it So – Positively change the energy and the future together
