Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) October 2, 2009
Thompson Consulting Group today announced the release of "Leadership Isn't Rocket Science: Simple Strategies Used by Great Leaders," a book which offers a direct, often humorous look at leadership in corporate America. The book provides insight into successful management practices through candid executive interviews and the profiling of numerous great business leaders regarding time-tested management and leadership strategies.
"Companies often become increasingly bureaucratic in a challenging economy in an attempt to streamline operations. Unfortunately, this can actually be counterproductive and often results in unnecessary management meetings and report requests," said Grant Thompson, Author and Owner of Thompson Consulting Group. "To operate most efficiently during tough financial times, organizations need to reduce management bureaucracy and allow employees to focus on producing a higher quality product or providing exceptional customer service."
"Leadership Isn't Rocket Science" identifies numerous common management mistakes and examines how company bureaucracy, business jargon, and endless meetings frequently get in the way of leadership success. The author provides simple, pragmatic suggestions for overcoming these hurdles and offers strategies for simplifying the leadership process in organizations of any size.
"A cornerstone to operating a successful business is fostering effective leadership throughout the organization," says Bob Dyson, owner of 22 Napa Auto Parts stores throughout Idaho and Oregon. "In his book, Grant simply outlines numerous strategies that will enable organizations of any size to recruit, educate and retain employees with the management and leadership skills necessary to drive business performance."
