Local Business Owner Helps Leaders Create Ripples Of Success

May 14, 2015 | Member News

Chris Hutchinson, founder of Fort Collins-based Trebuchet Group, offers practical leadership training in his first book, “Ripple: A Field Manual for Leadership That Works.” “Ripple” provides leaders a comprehensive framework and field-tested exercises to help them succeed in spreading their leadership influence as far as possible.

For more than twenty years, Hutchinson has worked with thousands of leaders from CEOs to mid-level managers and first-time supervisors. From this work, he discerned a common thread: leaders rarely realize how their actions impact others around them, and often don’t know how to improve that impact. Leaders’ actions are similar to a stone skipping on water, and the energy released from those actions – the ripple – spreads out in all directions to impact people and organizations. Hutchinson developed “Ripple” as a practical guide to help leaders create more positive ripples for greater personal and organizational success.

“‘Ripple’ transcends the traditional leadership advice by invoking the reader’s personal creativity. You will find yourself applying the lessons to your workplace immediately, and you and your entire team will be amazed by the results. Highly visual, engaging, and on-point, ‘Ripple’ should be required reading for all managers and leaders,” says Marshall Goldsmith, author of bestsellers “MOJO” and “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.”

“Ripple” guides readers through practices and exercises designed to help them find their strengths, act more effectively, motivate and engage others, and build practical systems for their organizations’ success. Busy leaders will find a “But I need help now!” cross-reference section to enable quick self-diagnosis and focus on the most important areas for improvement.
