Chris McChesney is the co-author of the best-selling book in the world on strategy execution. He is the Global Practice Leader of Execution for FranklinCovey Co. and one of the primary developers of The 4 Disciplines of Execution. For 15 years, he has led FranklinCovey’s ongoing design and development of these principles, as well as the consulting organization that has achieved extraordinary growth in many countries around the globe and impacted hundreds of organizations.
Chris has personally led many of the most noted implementations of the 4 Disciplines, including Marriott® International, Shaw Industries, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company®, The Kroger® Co., The Coca-Cola Co.®, Comcast, Lockheed Martin Corporation, and Gaylord Entertainment and Chick-Fil-A. This practical experience has enabled him to test and refine the principles contained in The 4 Disciplines of Execution from the boardroom to the front line of these and many other organizations.
"Every leader has a goal that they want to achieve, but how do you focus and leverage organizational behavior to accomplish your wildly important goals despite a whirlwind of competing priorities?"
Chris’s career with Franklin Covey began by working directly with Dr. Stephen R. Covey and has continued for more than two decades to include roles as a consultant, managing director, and general manager within the organization. Chris launched the first 4 Disciplines of Execution Practice in Franklin Covey’s Southeast Region, and today has seen it expand around the globe. Throughout this period of significant growth and expansion, Chris has maintained a single focus: to help organizations get results through improved execution.
“In place of the top-down, control-oriented management techniques of the Industrial Age, the 4 Disciplines offer a release-oriented, Knowledge Worker Age approach to executing goals and strategies, an approach that engages people’s hearts and minds toward a common goal unlike anything I’ve seen. Truly a profound work!”
— Stephen R. Covey, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 3rd Alternative: Solving Life’s Most Difficult Problems
