Why is that so many things we try so hard to learn just don’t stick? Because we pour all of our energy into learning new skills and better habits, but lack effective strategies for applying and retaining what we have just learned. It's an endless source of frustration for organizations and individuals.
Know Can Do! is a teaching parable in the tradition of Ken Blanchard's bestselling business books. It tells the story of a well-known author who is troubled by the gap between what people know—all the good advice they've digested—and what they actually do with it. Seeking a way to close this learning-doing gap, the author sets out on a journey to find a solution.
He soon meets a legendary businessman named Carl Hesse, who has discovered the secrets of putting knowledge into action. Carl teaches the author the three reasons people don't make the leap from knowing to doing and the key to overcoming these roadblocks. Through Carl Hesse and his colleagues, the author learns life-changing secrets that provide answers to the age-old question: "Why don't I do what I know I should do?" Know Can Do! teaches people at all levels how to apply life-changing techniques to reach their fullest potential.
"Use what you know and make a difference in your life and the lives you touch!"
