Managing today’s Workforce


ACHIEVE Publishing is pleased to announce the release of The Ordinary Leader: 10 Key Insights for Leading and Building a Thriving Organization. Author Randy Grieser is the founder and CEO of ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance and the Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute (CTRI).

Randy describes an ordinary leader as someone who leads a small organization or team that is doing great things. Ordinary leaders manage the majority of the world’s workforce, but they don’t lead large corporations or big government agencies. They are rarely written about in books or quoted in magazines.  They are, however, important. Maybe not globally, but in their own realm of influence, their leadership makes a  difference.

“Randy provides a frank and candid set of observations about leadership that will prove valuable to leaders and non-leaders alike.” – Peter Hargraves, Principal, Sputnik Architecture  Inc.

“This book combines home-grown wisdom with heartfelt passion. Randy’s insights are applicable to any profession and for all levels of leaders.” – Vicki Enns, Director, Assiniboine Family  Therapy 

The book presents 10 key insights for building and leading a thriving organization. These are the principles Randy identifies as instrumental to success in leadership. Writing for leaders everywhere, he inspires, motivates, and explains how to make each insight a reality in your organization. Also included are the perspectives of 10 ordinary leaders from a range of professions, feedback from a survey of over 1,700 leaders and employees, and a resource section that provides detailed guidance and examples for putting these ideas into  action.

Randy is a visionary leader who, together with a team of employees and trainers, has positioned ACHIEVE and CTRI to be two of the premier providers of professional development training in the industry. Randy gives presentations on leadership and management principles to a wide range of audiences. He believes leadership requires us to always be intentional about what we do and how we do  it.

Randy has created a one-day workshop based on the book. To see if he is presenting in a city near you visit
