Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Leading online executive education company, Gazelles Growth Institute announced the debut of its latest online course, Mastering the Rockefeller Habits, based on its co-founder and principal Verne Harnish's best-selling book, “Mastering the Rockefeller Habits: What You Must Do to Increase the Value of Your Fast-Growth Firm.” The first-of-its-kind course, designed specifically to help fast-growing firms and C-level executives maintain business growth, will be available for registration starting May 7th.
“Mastering the Rockefeller Habits” gives CEOs and leaders of fast-growth companies simple and practical tools to navigate success and continue building highly profitable corporations. Harnish draws upon more than two decades of experience working with CEOs and executive teams of fast growth firms, as well as leadership and management principles used by John D. Rockefeller, and many other thought leaders.
The best-selling book has been endorsed by over 100 CEOs of mid-sized companies – many of whom provide personal testimonials on the effectiveness of Harnish's guidelines – and has been translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Serbian, Polish, Dutch, German and Spanish.
The course will be structured in a hybrid-educational approach consisting of theory, practice and guided implementation by certified coaches in an easy-to-implement format. Video instruction from respected authors, researchers and experts is offered online along with support from certified coaches to assure practice and guided implementation of the principles of the instruction.
“Today's executives of fast-growth firms need to continue learning throughout their careers. In the past, many professionals turned to conventional executive education seminars. Today, these programs are becoming outdated, in part because they focus on academic goals that fall short when it comes to helping you apply what you’ve learned to the business world,” Verne Harnish stated. “Offering an online course in 'Mastering the Rockefeller Habits,' is an effective way for busy CEOs and their teams to learn and understand key business lessons, and start implementing takeaway strategies and guidelines that will add value to their companies now.”
