Win Every Day: Proven Practices for Extraordinary Results

–Book Review

Win every day is a fundamental goal. Win every day requires courage. Win every day depends on execution. This book, “Win Every Day: Proven Practices for Extraordinary Results” documents the reality of what it takes to make that happen, time after time.

Mark Miller continues his High-Performance series with book, #5 in the business fable featuring CEO Blake Brown and situations that seem to be ripped from real life. Naturally, it’s because they are. Drawing from over 40 years of business experience, the conversations, dilemmas, and challenges couldn’t be truer to life. I’ve read Miller’s other books in the series and found them to be a drama of real life without the drama. I think of Win Every Day as a reference book with a business story easy-read style.

Here are just a few of the concepts you will be introduced to in “Win Every Day: Proven Practices for Extraordinary Results”. Execution must be your focus. If this book has one central thread it is execution. Every start is preceded by a decision. Leaders must make the decision to do the right thing, at the right time, in the right way. Every time.

Leaders must be intentional about helping, coaching, training, and even celebrating individual successes. Leaders must courageously decide that their organization will be a high-performance organization. Then build teams who adopt that same mindset.

Leaders must align on the right things and this requires strategic thinking. This means everyone is aligned on the same things. Employees are taught that to reach their full potential and therefore organizational potential they must align on the same things. To Win Every Day: Pursue Mastery, Own the Numbers, Help Others Win – they all needed to do those things every day.

The wise leader will create opportunities for teams to connect at events outside of work. People are not machines but are individuals with basic needs for community and recognition. Communication will flow more freely and sincerely when people know each other.

Communication, not just conversation, drives successful projects. The many dialogues between CEO Blake Brown and Coach Tom Moore are packed with wisdom. Remember that execution is king – it’s what receives intense focus. Moore says, “Communication is the oxygen of execution.” He also goes on to point out that leaders work to communicate tirelessly. “There is a direct correlation between the level of communication and the level of execution.”

Near the end of the book, the unmistakable point is made:

Your choices are the only thing you can control. Choose Wisely.

To get the full benefit, read the book. The storytelling format is a proven method of instilling ideas and applicable concepts you want to put into practice. We all read reference books and technical manuals all day. Give your mind a break and enjoy the experience of learning from a training manual that reads like a novel.
