January 30, 2013
Berlin, MD - January 29, 2013 – Jim Leighton Publishing announces the launch of Getting FIT, a book designed to help readers unleash the power of creating Fully Integrated Teams (“FIT”) in a non-sterile and refreshingly candid format. Leaders are becoming more than figureheads and bosses, they are team players who spur organizations toward effective change. Drawing on 35 years of experience, author Jim Leighton combines professional insight, moving personal stories, and practical tools to help individuals and teams transform to create highly successful outcomes and healthy organizational cultures. FIT elevates energy levels and gives readers grit to overcome obstacles and inspire others to find their own FIT on both intellectual and emotional levels.
Diving into the concepts of the Purpose Model and 5 Steps of FIT is fundamental in helping readers apply the language of FIT in their own personal and professional lives. The book will guide readers through twelve chapters of refreshing, honest and real life approaches to unleashing the power of FIT. The book also includes raw, memoir-based stories where Jim exposes his own power of purpose through family legacy - how is father inspired his FIT and how his death impacted him, as well as the heart-wrenching story of how is brother lost and found himself; all lessons of “Getting FIT”. Living intentionally and holistically starts with creating positive relationships. Jim’s belief, as his father taught him, is “you get things done with people.” Every good leader measures the success of a team or company by the strength of its weakest member. Working together in a division of labor, individuals achieve greater things than they could do alone. As almost every goal requires the assistance and support of others, it is crucial to recruit supporters of your purpose, principles, promise and place. These are the components of what Jim terms, “the FIT House.”
The language of FIT is explained as single cells coming together as a means of survival to duplicate, strengthen and revive the greater whole. Jim says, “Teams of people are like cells of the human body.” As bodies are made up of many cells, people are the building blocks of organizations - they strengthen or diminish a team from within. FIT equips organizations with the power of purpose-driven individuals. Married couples, families and Fortune 500 companies alike are discovering how a common purpose, guided by shared principles, and a future promise changes the world around them. The integration Jim discusses in this book is aimed at multiplication of talent and energy in individuals that flourishes within teams. His memoir-based stories will lead readers through the process of how personal connections truly inspire business concepts using a proven process (FIT).
“Thank you for the opportunity to speak into your life,” says FIT Author, Jim Leighton. “This work is from my heart, and I trust it will ignite a dynamic and active change in yours. I stand in the backlight of each success, celebrating it as a mutual victory and thanking my Heavenly Father for the gift of people and their passions,” added Leighton.
