About-

"A smooth transition to excellence in management cannot be achieved by an abortive hodgepodge of borrowed programs and panaceas. First-rate company success must derive from a top executive who can think . . . who can provide the rest of his team with a desire to excel and a distinct impatience with mediocrity."

In this his second book, the author of 'Tough-Minded Management' presents a formula for developing an entirely new business way of life. Using candid, no-nonsense language, he pinpoints the one element that can turn a mediocre company into a great one . . . the one element that can enlighten and energize ordinary firms so that they accomplish extraordinary things--Climate!

Executives will find here not fanciful theories but tough-minded principles.

-Principles that have been tested and proved in the marketplace and in the executive suite.

-Principles that will help managers everywhere to understand the way of their jobs.

-Principles that will help managers to develop and, in fact, settle for nothing less than employees who welcome responsibility and the challenge of contributing to company profits.


Here is a book for leaders and for potential leaders; a book for any executive who senses the need for Developing a 'Tough-MInded Climate for Results.'
