(PRWEB) August 27, 2014
Founded by Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady, Obstaclés Press, the publishing division of LIFE Leadership, located on the web at http://ObstaclésPress.com, has been publishing self-help and inspirational books that help people with both personal and professional development for some time. But as its list of publications grows and its works receive more acclaim, public awareness of the publisher is increasing. One of the company’s most well-known and beloved books is the ‘New York Times’ bestseller ‘Launching a Leadership Revolution’ by Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady. One of its most recent releases, ‘And Justice for All,’ helped its author, Orrin Woodward, become a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Official Record Holder for the Largest Book Signing. And another of the publisher’s most popular works, ‘Financial Fitness,’ recently won a Silver Medal in the 2014 Axiom Business Book Awards. And now, the publisher is making a new addition to its collection of informative and motivational works: ‘Dealing with Difficult People’ is set to be released at the end of this month.
Orrin Woodward, Chief Executive Officer, explains the origin of the publisher’s unusual name: “Obstaclés is pronounced Ob-STOCK-uh-leez and is represented by a cartoon character created by Chris Brady. He is our anti-mascot and represents all the barriers and obstacles that we as humans face to achieving our dreams.” As the adversary of Brady’s heroic leader, Rascal, the fiendish Obstaclés has gained notoriety for his mischievous ways. He has his own line of products, including posters, bobblehead dolls, and a coloring book. “In fact, he may have his own book deal soon!” says Woodward.

All the books that Obstaclés Press has published so far have the same general focus: helping people overcome obstacles to success so they can live the lives they’ve always wanted. Rob Hallstrand, Chief Operations Officer, as seen at http://Obstacléspress.com/people/, believes strongly that the purpose of Obstaclés Press is summarized in the organization's motto: “Publishing the truth despite the obstacles (or despite little Obstaclés).”
“Obstaclés Press exists to publish books that help people overcome the obstacles in their lives. These obstacles represent negativity. We believe that, by sharing the truth through the written word, we can help people get past obstacles and become the very best they can be. Our overall goal is to help others achieve the things they want in life,” says Hallstrand.
Chris Brady, Executive Publisher, agrees. “Obstaclés Press grew from the same mindset that drove the creation of LIFE Leadership and embodies the same beliefs. Our hope is that this publication arm will help us reach a new audience who is hungry for hope and motivation.”
In order to achieve its mission of helping readers overcome obstacles to success and live the lives they’ve always wanted, Obstaclés Press carries a wide array of works on personal and professional development, including the above-mentioned books and others such as ‘PAiLS’ and ‘A Month of Italy’ by Chris Brady, ‘RESOLVED’ by Orrin Woodward, ‘Voyage of a Viking’ by Tim Marks, and ‘Toughen Up!’ by Claude Hamilton. The publisher also produces an entire line of books called the ‘LIFE Leadership Essentials Series’ designed to teach existing and would-be leaders the fundamentals of leadership and help them develop and hone their leadership and interpersonal skills in order to increase their effectiveness. The new release coming out this month, ‘Dealing with Difficult People,’ is part of this series. The publishers feel certain this book will go a long way toward fulfilling their goal of bringing true benefit to their readers by helping them alleviate some of the stress of dealing with difficult people and situations and improve all of their relationships in life.
