New "FORUM" Book Quickly Climbs Best-Sellers List

Provides Insight, Tips to Help Entrepreneurs and CEOs Get the Most From Their Leadership Teams by Sharing Experiences

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Mo Fathelbab's just-published book, "FORUM: The Secret Advantage of Success Leaders," has already rapidly climbed up some of the best-selling lists for business books, according to the author, who is founder of Forum Resources Network and a leading expert in team facilitation and CEO-to-CEO forums.

"As of today," explains Fathelbab, "we've zoomed up on the best-seller rankings to reach as high as the #2 slot on Tower Books' 'Top 100 Hardcover' list and were #1,274 on Amazon -- which is in the top .001% of their books. Actually, I couldn't be more pleased. When the book was first listed on Amazon, we were at 98,000 and that was just a week ago!"

The 163-page book, on sale on Amazon, is a complete guide for today's forward-thinking entrepreneurs and business leaders who are seeking successful methods in company team-building, employee conflict resolution, and ways to better understand relationships -- both at home and in the workplace -- to achieve unity, harmony and true cohesion -- all ingredients for personal and professional success.

Throughout the book, in clear, precise and easy-to-understand language, Mo describes his philosophy that forums are powerful tools for building trust and nurturing healthy relationships. The book provides sample after sample of how forums, when used effectively, can positively impact individuals' lives and perceptions. Forum groups can be comprised of members who share some professional or personal interest, like CEOs, entrepreneurs or senior managers.

"Forums all have one major thing in common," explains Fathelbab. "They work on the principle that by providing an honest exchange of experiences, participants are able to increase their success potential. Groups that work well together offer their members an unequalled source of information and emotional support."

"The book has been really well received, especially among members of organizations who know first-hand how effective and valuable healthy Forums can be," says Fathelbab. "In fact, many people have purchased multiple copies of the book whether it's for their chapter, Forum members or colleagues."

"To say Mo's book is the quintessential tool for starting and building thriving Forums would be an understatement," says "Growth Guy" Verne Harnish, founder & CEO of Gazelles. "Those who are familiar with Mo's work know that he is 'THE' forum guru. His book is a fantastic resource and is loaded with communication tools for management teams. Those who enjoyed Pat Lencioni's 'The Five Dysfunctions of a Team,' will find these tools invaluable for building trust and handling conflict."
