Share Article

"No Magic Bullets" warns executives and entrepreneurs not to fall prey to "magic bullet thinking" and advises, through in-depth analysis, interviews with fourteen notable business leaders and the author's own experience, about the hard things great business leaders know and do.

The genesis of "No Magic Bullets" (publisher, Lioncrest Publishing) arose from the author's observation of many otherwise smart executives latching onto the latest new business concept as the one concept alone to reach business nirvana. Through his work, Rob Waite had discussed his observations with many durably successful CEOs and business leaders. They concurred with Waite.

Rob Waite set out to detail how business leaders can avoid falling into the trap of "magic bullet thinking" and what executives and entrepreneurs should be focusing on to obtain durable success. To do this, Waite kept a journal over multiple years of his observations about how a variety of senior business leaders operated, about his own experiences as a CEO and as an elite-level executive recruiter, and then combined those observations with in-depth interviews of fourteen notable executives and entrepreneurs about what led to their durable success.

Rob Waite derived from this effort common elements about what he refers to as, "Hard things that great executives and entrepreneurs know and do." In "No Magic Bullets", Waite details these hard things as Seven Capabilities. The book also serves as a guidebook, along with its compendium website (http://www.nomagicbullets.xyz) to aid the reader grow their depth of knowledge of these Seven Capabilities, apply them to their career and business today as well as to craft their own custom tailored plan for obtaining durable, not fleeting, success.

Several business leaders have commented on “No Magic Bullets.” One of those, Jim Kane - Chairman, President and CEO of Pittsburgh Corning said Waite’s book is, “Indispensable… hard-earned wisdom and actionable advice vital to personal success in any business today.”

Within 48 hours of release, "No Magic Bullets" hit the #1 rank on Amazon’s Hot New Releases List in the Management Science category. This is Waite’s second book. His first book "The Lost Art of General Management" has been a global success.

"No Magic Bullets," published by Lioncrest Publishing, can be viewed on Amazon in Kindle and paperback versions.
