Unleash the Power of Vision in Your Work & Life

Ken Blanchard
Jesse Lyn Stoner

I’ve shared this book with friends and coaching peers alike and continue to do so in order to share the wisdom and effective guidance that Ken and Jesse provide on each and every page.

Vision answers the question, ‘What mountain do we want to climb?’ Full Steam Ahead! is a wonderful guidebook that will not only help you find your mountain but give you all the road maps and tools you’ll need to make it to the top. Highly recommended!

If you’re like me, you can polish it off in two days. But if you’re wise, you’ll read it slowly in order to savor it. I read most of Full Steam Ahead at lunchtime, a chapter a day, with a pen handy for taking notes.
