TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 5, 2013) - According to Nick Forrest, executive leadership consultant and author of How Dare You Manage? Seven Principles to Close the CEO Skill Gap, "there is a significant difference between managing a group of employees and managing all the employees in the organization." His book shatters a number of myths about the state of CEO readiness for the job.
Released today, How Dare You Manage? Seven Principles to Close the CEO Skill Gap provides an in-depth explanation of the key steps a senior leader must take to achieve success in managing their employees from the corner office. The book outlines the seven principles that should guide current or new CEOs confronted with the demands of managing hundreds or thousands of employees, rather than just their own team.
Nick Forrest demonstrates that there is a huge difference in managing organizations that are at or over 250 employees. He argues that when you hit this key number, the rules of management change forever. His book provides senior executives with a pragmatic and disciplined approach so executives can manage their current roles more effectively and successfully make the leap to managing large groups of employees when the time comes.
Nick Forrest believes that management is a craft: "Skilful executive management is a highly effective means to get consistent, high productivity out of large groups of individuals, higher than they can achieve singly or even in small groups."
Most executives reach the top job without the training they need to do the job effectively. They also don't know where to turn to get the training they require. How Dare You Manage? Seven Principles to Close the CEO Skill Gap is a hard-hitting, insightful summary of the key principles required to become a successful CEO.
Nick Forrest has spent the past twenty-five years working with and coaching senior executives both in Canada and abroad as head of Forrest & Company Limited. Previously he held progressively senior line-management positions in both manufacturing and retail. Nick's goal is to enable CEOs to achieve great results.
