Crucial Questions from a Top Executive Coach by Alexander Dec 12, 2005
The author is a proponent of the following organizational customs/philosophies: - get fear out into the open where it can be confronted and dealt with constructively - say what you think - face facts dispassionately rather than running away from them - confront negativity head-on - be passionate about your business - seek new missions to reinvigorate staff - select the undone things on your "to do" list - itemize reasons for failure or reasons why there are no results - discuss the unmentionables dispassionately - do not waste precious talent
The work is invaluable because it confronts reasons why people and/or organizations face intractable bottlenecks. Dispassionate honesty flushes out why an organization does not work so that constructive strategies can be put forth to improve the throughput of decision-making .
Made a huge difference in the way I run my company Oct 20, 2005
No one teaches you to be a CEO, but this book offers a rare peek behind the scenes in other corner offices. The book gives real-world examples of issues faced by some of the world's top executives, and walks you through how Alexander coached them to solutions that substantially increased their effectiveness. He brings a refreshingly human approach to leadership issues. I hear his fee is $1,000 an hour, so this book seems like a pretty affordable way to get his help!
Tales From The Top Oct 14, 2005
Tales From The Top is a must read for every leader! This book not only helps you to achieve your best in business but as well teaches you how to achieve your personal best in life. I appreciate how Graham asks the appropriate questions to not only help you excel in business, but also how to thrive in your personal life. Many books on the market today help you to excel in one or the other, not in both. I appreciate the balance Graham challenges every leader to achieve.
Tales From the Top is a must read for business leaders Oct 13, 2005
"Graham's experienced, original, honest approach in helping business unit leaders improve themselves, which in turn improves the companies they run, is powerful and full of real work and world wisdom. Tales From the Top is a must read for managers and business leaders"
