Local Author Wins National Award And Is Now A Finalist For Accolades In San Diego
SAN DIEGO, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — For two decades Karen Martin has been showing businesses, government agencies, and non-profits how to cut through the chaos and transform into high-performance organizations. Her book, The Outstanding Organization gives businesses the no-nonsense insight Martin relays to her clients.
Recently Martin won the highly esteemed Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. Martin is now a finalist for the San Diego Book & Writing Awards in the published business books category. The awards will be given out on June 22(nd).
The Outstanding Organization (McGraw Hill) helps professionals from CEOs to customer service representatives see the hurdles that are keeping them from achieving excellence. It also gives them the tools to make the transformation. She offers a “toolbox” focused on developing four key behaviors: clarity, focus, discipline, and engagement. Martin lays out a practical approach to combating and eliminating chaos that adds unnecessary costs, stifles innovation, and erodes the customer experience. Her book is receiving accolades from colleagues and competitors alike. “Too often, outstanding performance seems out of reach. Karen Martin explains, with elegant simplicity, why so many organizations can’t get there from here. Better yet, she provides clear, actionable advice on building foundations that will allow everyone to achieve excellence,” said Matthew E. May, author The Laws of Subtraction.
