“Charlie Gilkey masterfully uncovers the pivotal role habits play in shaping exceptional teams. From bolstering communication and productivity, to fostering a thriving culture and employee morale, this book offers a comprehensive blueprint for building teams that succeed. Whether you’re a new manager or an experienced leader, Team Habits is a must-read to take your team to the next level."

— Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times bestselling author of The Earned Life, Triggers, and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.

Your team doesn’t rise to the sum of its member’s capabilities; it falls to how it practices good team habits that create great results and belonging.

Everyone has the power to change their team’s habits since we have a lot of influence, trust, and rapport with the 4–8 people we spend most of our days working with.

You don’t need expensive consultants, an executive champion, or a budget to improve your team habits. Since you’re already going to be doing the work, why not make the work better?

Team Habits will show you how.

Start Finishing: How to Go From Idea to Done

It’s not what you start that counts; it’s what you finish. But more importantly, finishing the work that matters most helps us thrive.

Start Finishing presents a 9-step method for going from an idea that matters to a completed project. It takes a root-cause approach, for too much of the productivity literature works on surface-level tips that help us become better to-do list ninjas while our soul-deep dreams and goals remain eternally out of reach.

Start Finishing won the Eric Hoffer Grand Prize, has been named a Top 10 Business & Economics book for Fall 2019 by Publishers Weekly, was named Best New Time Management and Best New Productivity Book by BookAuthority, and positively reviewed by ForeWord Reviews. It has also received praise from thought leaders like Seth Godin, Dan Pink, Jonathan Fields, Laura Vanderkam, and Susan Piver.

The Small Business Life Cycle

Small (and micro) businesses have common growth stages and, to be successful in business, you have to focus on the right things at the right time. The Small Business Life Cycle is like "What to Expect When You're Expecting" for small business owners and entrepreneurs.

Small businesses have much different growth patterns than large corporations. Small business owners who look to large corporations for insight and guidance on how to grow their own businesses often feel overwhelmed and demotivated. The Small Business Life Cycle lays out the five stages of small business growth and explains how you can navigate each stage in your business.

Whether you're thinking about starting a small business or you've been in business for a while, The Small Business Life Cycle will give you a better gauge to evaluate where you are and what you need to do next.
