In the spirit of The One Thing and Start with Why, this guide provides the "missing link" for entrepreneurs to generate fast, sustainable growth, get out of the weeds, and build their A-teams from the inside out.

Success in business today means responding to change at an ever-increasing pace—due to factors such as competition, evolving technology, and increasing client expectations. Delivering more value with fewer resources is the name of the game. However, in this environment, even when a business is winning, the leaders and teams playing the game often feel like they are losing—plagued by overwhelm and burnout.
Most business books try to address this problem with systems, structures, and values. What’s missing? The “People Part”—the often-misunderstood area of a business where leaders and team members do the actual thinking, interacting, and performing together. Drawing on Annie’s 30 years of working with humans in business, this dynamic and engaging book outlines seven easy-to-implement agreements to build  a high-performance team.
You’ll learn how to:
  • Lead in a way that supports others to perform at their best, by strengthening your own Self-Leadership
  • Generate a leadership reputation where the best A Players seek to work with you, and stay for the long term
  • Create psychological safety—the environment that empowers team members to collaborate at the highest levels
  • Develop leaders and team members to take on responsibilities with the same commitment level as the owners
  • Supercharge your team productivity with Annie’s signature tools
  • Put the seven agreements to work and see improvements right away
    If you’re an entrepreneur just starting out . . . a CEO trying to get out of the weeds to work “on” rather than “in” your business . . . a leader who needs a breakthrough for themselves and their team . . . or a team member wanting to make your best contribution yet . . . then The People Part is for you.
    Annie Hyman Pratt is a master at developing leaders and teams that drive rapid growth and sustainable success, enabling entrepreneurs to work on the strategic and visionary aspects of their business—and have the time, freedom, and impact they desire.
    Annie scaled her family’s business, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, by more than 10x, taking it from 7 domestic “mom and pop shops” to an international brand of 70+ stores in just 7 years’ time before leading the company through a highly successful sale. She has spent the last two decades as a top-tier business consultant and has helped more than 75 companies and entrepreneurs take their business to the next level.
    Her track record of success stems from her unique approach to business strategy, structure, systems, finance, and the “missing link” of human behavior that brings it all together. Whatever challenges you may be facing in your business, Annie has already seen it—and solved it.
    Annie holds a bachelor of arts from UCLA in Economics/Business, is a licensed CPA, and holds a master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.

    “The first time I heard Annie speak about leadership and team building was a near-mystical experience for me. I immediately knew that I needed her help to grow the functionality of my team. That was nearly a decade ago, and since then Annie has had a profound positive impact on my business. Now she’s finally put her wisdom and practical approach into a book, and The People Part delivers. It starts with the first principles that most every other leadership book glosses over. This is a nutrient-dense book that will show you how to build a responsive and productive team.”
