Proven, Practical Guide Shows Communities how to Thrive by Turning Visions into Reality
Every day, America’s cities, towns and counties must tackle issues such as improving education, job growth, and government and social services. To help these communities as they struggle with change and look to the future, a new book can help them become a success story. In 90 Days to a Winning Community: A Guide to Achieving your Community Vision (published by AuthorHouse), speaker, author and community coach James T. Dittoe gives an inspirational and practical how-to guide to action planning for community leaders.
Based on a system that has repeatedly delivered real results in actual communities, 90 Days to a
Winning Community explains the ideas behind the system, highlighting several community success stories. A workbook portion outlines steps communities can follow to become Winning Communities, and includes sample timelines, agendas, worksheets and progress reports that other Winning Communities used during their transformations.
Dittoe founded Winning Communities, Inc. in 1994 to help cities, towns and counties across America envision the future and develop community goals and action plans for achievement. With more than 30 years’ experience in community and economic development, his work has led to the building of highways, airports, revitalized downtowns, education foundations and other value-added projects, helping local economies gain thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of capital.
“The exciting part is that this book can help many struggling communities achieve great things if they listen to the inspirational messages, hear the stories from the communities who are ‘doing things’ and follow the action steps outlined,” said Dittoe. “It helps to inspire leaders at the local level and should be required reading for any leadership group.”
