"Arthur Jackson has crafted a readable, accessible primer on the symptoms of alcoholism and how to spot them. The information he provides could save you many headaches and heartaches in your business and personal relationships." -- Best-selling author and President of Elliot Wave International, Robert Prechter, Jr.
A common and yet overlooked business issue is brought to the forefront in Arthur M. Jackson's book 'Raise The Bottom': How to Keep Secret Alcoholics from Damaging Your Business. With an uncertain economy, business leaders need to understand how the rampant and rarely discussed disease of alcoholism not only affects the individual suffering, but also the business for which the alcoholic works. 'Raise The Bottom,' the first business book that tackles alcoholism in the workplace, provides tips on how to recognize closet alcoholics and prevent them from damaging a business.
Although alcoholism is most often regarded as a personal problem, 'Raise The Bottom' focuses on its destructiveness in the business world and serves as a challenge for business leaders to raise workplace standards by confronting the issue directly.
Through a storyline involving two true-to-life characters, the affects of alcoholism at the workplace are examined. Aaron Middleton, an accomplished business consultant, and Jason Burke, the protégé and recent MBA graduate, take readers on a journey uncovering the problems created by alcoholism in the work environment. Through their dialogue, readers will learn how to identify the alcoholism even if the alcoholic is unaware of the problem, and how to disenable the alcoholic and protect the workplace from the damage the alcoholic employee can cause.
Jackson's twenty-plus years as a business and marketing consultant contributes a wide-range of expertise that's apparent in 'Raise The Bottom.' As a recovering alcoholic, Jackson sees in retrospect that many of the workplace problems he encountered were actually the result of alcoholic thinking and behavior.
The combination of Jackson's business experience and recovery from alcoholism creates a comprehensive and engaging read, tackling alcoholism from dual perspectives. 'Raise The Bottom' is a must-have for any business owner looking to effectively run a business.
