Soaring With The Phoenix by James A Belasco & Jerre Stead
Hardcover book with plastic wrapped From Amazon "Revivolution" is the term coined by San Diego University management professor James A. Belasco and 30-year technology-industry veteran Jerre Stead to describe the process of "renewal through revolution" that they believe is mandatory for those hoping to compete successfully in a corporate universe where monumental change is now the rule rather than the exception. Soaring with the Phoenix is the pair's call to action, in which they spell out their provocative prescription for maintaining equilibrium and achieving gains amidst a rapidly shifting economic reality that could otherwise wreak havoc on the unprepared. "Tomorrow arrives too quickly for most of us," they write. "Stuck in the mire of today's rules that no longer work, we flail around in our search for security. But the answer is right before our eyes. Invent a new tomorrow and change the rules!" Basing their advice on five overarching principles (create your own future, utilize your connections, help others learn, help others succeed, and take ownership of your company and your life), Belasco and Stead offer readers a way to use these strategies to revitalize themselves and their organizations. --Howard Rothman From Library Journal More management stuff, this time on getting you and your company back into the rat race?with a vengeance.
