Chestertown, MD, March 16, 2004 — Washington College's Students in Free Enterprise, the Sigma Beta Delta Business Honor Society and the Campus Events and Visitors Committee present “Sticking to It: The Art of Adherence,” a lecture by Lee J. Colan, president of the L Group, Inc, Monday, March 29, at 7:00 p.m. in the College's Hynson Lounge. The lecture is free and open to the public, and the first 50 people to arrive will receive a free copy of Colan's companion book, Sticking to It: The Art of Adherence.
Have you ever thought that business success is not just having talent, a popular product or a great idea, but a method? Lee J. Colan, Ph.D., author of Sticking to It: The Art of Adherence, believes in the simple maxim that the game of business is won by those who execute their strategies. While the challenges today's leaders face are always changing, the formula for winning remains the same: a focus on “how” more than “what.” Having a strategy gets you in the game, according to Colan, but execution gets you in the winner's circle. Sticking to It teaches the methods for follow-through, keeping a team on track and the practical steps that lead to business success. Joseph A. Bosch, Chief People Officer of Pizza Hut Corporation, said: “Sticking to It: The Art of Adherence will work in any company because Colan's strategies are grounded in real organizations and in the reality of human nature—not the theoretical. His passion for ‘keeping it simple' gives leaders confidence they can successfully create positive change.”
Founder and president of the Dallas-based consulting firm, L Group, Inc., Colan has more than 20 years under his belt as an organizational effectiveness consultant. He earned his master's and doctoral degrees in industrial/organizational psychology from George Washington University and has built a track record of successfully managing rapid organizational change and helping leaders and their organizations to grow.
