Praise for Rick and The A Player advantage

“Very specific and very readable, The A Player is your strategic guide to transforming solid players into champions! The brilliance of Crossland’s book is that it’s for any employee who wants to be a top performer as well as any manager who wants to transform B or even C Players into A Players. It will help your organization achieve the performance you have versus the performance you want. Excellent!”

Marshall Goldsmith

World’s Foremost Executive Coach and Bestselling Author

“Topgrading is all about hiring only A Players, and Crossland’s book is a wonderfully practical manual to guide A Players to remain A Players, and it’s for anyone aspiring to be an A Player. Implicit in the book is a mini-MBA degree showing how A Players achieve great results. We at Topgrading, Inc. will use this book when coaching managers to move up to the A Player designation!”
