Neil Ducoff’s new book features practical advice on key business issues.

It’s easy to let things slide. No-compromise leaders know that their very survival depends on their ability to make decisions and stay the course.

Neil Ducoff’s Monday Morning Wake-Up columns have been providing a weekly shot-in-the-arm for no-compromise leaders since 2008. "Wake Up!" is a collection of the most powerful and inspiring Monday Morning Wake-Ups, designed to motivate, challenge and push leaders at all levels to greater success and ease of operations.

For the uninitiated, Monday Morning Wake-Ups are full of fast, relevant, use-them-now strategies to survive and thrive in any economy. These quick doses of no-compromise thinking have been changing the way leaders run their businesses and departments. Each chapter of "Wake Up!" offers practical advice to work through leadership challenges and turn goals into measurable gains.

Ducoff is founder and CEO of Strategies, a business education and coaching company. He’s gained international respect as the guru of team-based compensation. He wrote the award-winning "No-Compromise Leadership" and co-wrote "Fast Forward," the salon and spa industry’s only business reference manual. He has spoken at numerous conferences, including National Gathering of Games, the 2011 Quality Conference and the inaugural Esthetics China Exhibition and Congress.

“I wanted to put together a resource that leaders in every company could consult for a bit of inspiration and a quick kick-in-the-butt,” Ducoff said. “These are some of the most important columns I’ve written, all updated for immediate action in today’s fierce business climate.”

Ducoff has been honored with an Art of Business Award and was named one of 12 business “Legends and Icons” by the Serious Business Conference.

“Whether you go through the book start to finish, or just open it when you need an instant burst of business motivation, "Wake Up!" will get you on the path to outstanding, next-level success,” said Mara Dresner, vice president of communications for Strategies. “Neil knows how to get to the heart of the matter. He’s heard every excuse in his more than 35 years in business. It all comes back to reminding leaders that if it needs to get done, get it done.”

“It’s easy to let things slide. No-compromise leaders know that their very survival depends on their ability to make decisions and stay the course,” added Ducoff, who twice served as a judge for the Global Salon Business Awards.
