Module 2        Higher Performance People

Higher performance people are the scarcest resources in any organization.

In this, the second of five modules in your OVERTAKE® system, we show you how to develop such people and, by doing so, to establish an almost-insuperable, sustainable, competitive advantage.

Since your company must start from where you are now we focus initially on changing these behaviors that now hold your people back and constrain your company:

Change the behaviors that damage careers and ruin businesses

Q. Why do good people fail or not achieve their potential?

Latest Technology    CSS     Compliance

This webpage is CSS compliant

This logo means that we validate the three Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) we use in this website to comply with the CSS specification recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

CSS-compliant pages can be better presented to you, can be faster loading, can use your monitor more efficiently - no horizontal scrolling, and are easier to modify.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a technology for adding style (e.g. fonts, colors, spacing) to Web documents. With it we create 'liquid' pages which flow to fill the space you make available on your monitor.

By using the CSS web standard we separate style from content - presentation from structure - design from data. The entire design of CSS compliant web-pages lives in a single Style Sheet. When we make improvements they automatically cascade down through all our site's CSS compliant pages. In contrast design and content are currently intermingled in HTML table-based layouts.

Users with standards-compliant browsers see our site as we designed it. But if your browser is not up to snuff, you see a message at the top of this web page telling you your browser does not comply with web standards, offering to help you download one that does and the page you see is presented by an alternate style sheet. Users with standards-compliant browsers do not see this message at all. This is in effect on the page you're reading now, and on every CSS compliant page of our website.

If you don't see the message your browser understands CSS.

When you print any CSS web page (for your own use) the layout is presented by a third style sheet.


Quality Control    HTML 4.0    Compliance

This website is HTML 4.0 compliant

We validate all hypertext to comply with the HTML 4.0 specification recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

This ensures ease of interoperability across the widest range of platforms - browsers and operating systems. We then add Microsoft®-proprietary search and map utilities that make navigation through our website even easier. But in a very small number of older browsers these utilities may not work, or may not work as intended. In that event use the navigation menu and the Table of Contents. This combination of features delivers the greatest benefits to most Users.

To work as intended CSS style sheets need valid HTML.
