Summary: Good News to Use at My Level
Rating: 5

By Jeffrey W. Bennett, ISP, author of ISP Certification-The Industrial Security Professional Exam Manual and Under the Lontar Palm

Not many leadership books are written for lower level leaders. This book is. I have experienced different levels of leadership and only wish that I had known about The Leader years ago.

My company is currently teaching Leadership 101 to internal employees and reading The Leader is a pre-requisite. The Leader has exercises that map out how to lead the team, create vision, and achieve goals. Not surprisingly, it accurately identifies some of the interaction that you and your team will experience during the journey.

The Leader is a MUST HAVE resource within reach and not on the shelf.

Rating: 5

As the Instructor of a course in Leadership at a major university in Philadelphia, I have found that Frigon's book to be the perfect text book for several reasons. First of all, it is an easy-reader, straight forward,not swimming with pretentious philosophical babble that could turn-off young college students. Secondly, it spells out with clarity the many important dynamics of leadership, team work, and visioning in a (step by step) process that clearly explains these concepts in practical, applicable terms. This is great for those who may be unfamiliar with the concepts of leadership and management, yet the book in no way oversimplifies these concepts for experienced executives or educators; rather it helps the experienced manager to redefine his/her pracitices of leadership by offering many hands-on techniques that will never become obselete. These principles and practices help to continually develop the skills that are needed to maintain the pole position in one's personal and professional life. Thirdly, Frigon's book is concise and precise proving that you don't need a whole lotta pages to get to the point. This is also great in terms of teaching. Students have read this book comprehensively two or three times per semester...on their an on-going guide like none other. And lastly...the price is right... buy two.. give one as a gift to someone who is hungry for success...Excellent! Nothing more to say.

Doing business in china for dummies

Wiley Publishing, Inc.| ISBN: 978-0-470-04929-7 | English | PDF | 386 Pages | Size: 2.99 MB

For many Westerners, something about China is so intense and exciting that it’s a social glue among those who’ve spent some time there. We met through a mutual acquaintance who knew we had backgrounds in China. Over lunch, we swapped stories (and laughs) about living and doing business in China — how challenging the market is, how strong a role government plays in business there, how overwhelming the country can feel, and how everything seems to take so much longer to get done. We both admitted that a solid howto guide could’ve saved us a good deal of time hard spent climbing the learning curve. And so Doing Business in China For Dummies was born. We think (and hope) that you can find this book useful as a starting point and reference in your China business adventure. As you find out when reading the book, little about doing business there is easy. Your company needs to figure out how the Chinese business system works and how to develop and manage Chinese relationships — and your company needs to be willing
to make a commitment to the market for the long haul. You need a lot of patience along the way, too. But with this book as your guide, your company (and you personally) can benefit from the opportunities that China offers.

About This Book
Doing Business in China For Dummies tells you what you need to know to succeed in China. How does business really work there? How do you get started? What do you need to do to get your business up and running properly? You decide where to start and what to read. This book is a reference tool for you and your business when and where you need it. It’s designed so you can read and understand chapters of interest without having to read the rest of the book. (Of course, you’ll be better prepared if you do read the whole thing, even if you don’t do so in order.) Just use the table of contents or index to find the topics you want.
