After years of analyzing, assisting, and teaching executives how to better communicate - and therefore 'lead', I wrote Fierce Leadership to share my revelation that there is a bold, compelling line between leadership and 'fierce' leadership
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 29, 2009
Fierce, Inc., a global training and development provider, is thrilled to announce that the second business book authored by its CEO and founder Susan Scott has become an immediate bestseller. After just one week in bookstores, Fierce Leadership: A Bold Alternative to the Worst 'Best' Practices of Business Today has been ranked #4 on the New York Times' Advice, How-to & Miscellaneous Bestseller List, #4 on the Wall Street Journal's Hardcover Business Bestseller List and #11 on Wall Street Journal's Hardcover Nonfiction Bestseller List.
"After years of analyzing, assisting, and teaching executives how to better communicate - and therefore 'lead', I wrote Fierce Leadership to share my revelation that there is a bold, compelling line between leadership and 'fierce' leadership," said Susan Scott. "If you want to become a great leader, gain the capacity to connect with your colleagues and customers at a deep level... or lower your aim."
In her latest book, Scott analyzes the six most widely accepted "best practices" blindly adopted by business leaders everywhere, and so deeply ingrained in our organizational culture that no one has questioned them… until now. Scott shows how these best practices are not only ineffective - they are costing companies billions of dollars, driving away valuable employees and customers, limiting performance, and stalling careers.
With new approaches to everything from employee feedback, corporate diversity, and customer relations, FIERCE LEADERSHIP provides audiences with an honest look at what might be holding them back--and what to do about it.
