Florida Leadership Expert's New Book Offers Stunning Tactics to Tame Bullying Bosses
By: Business World Rising, LLC
Deb Boelkes of Amelia Island – who founded the leadership development firm Business World Rising a decade ago after spending 25 years leading organizations within Fortune 100 technology companies – collaborated with renowned psychiatrist and international best-selling author of "Talking to Crazy", Mark Goulston, M.D., in the writing of this book. Both Boelkes and Goulston have seen their share of crazies and bullies in the workplace over the years.
In "The WOW Factor Workplace", Boelkes weaves her own career lessons-learned into an illuminating and confidence building narrative that also features insightful soundbites from Dr. Mark along with shockingly candid interviews with a dozen notable leaders of award winning "Best Places to Work" – organizations with camaraderie so amazing that the best, brightest and most talented people love working there and everyone else lines up to get in.
This sharp-witted new book offers an abundance of helpful advice and action steps for aspiring as well as tenured leaders at any step on the career ladder. "I started out writing this book as the philosophical foundation for Business World Rising's leadership peer mentoring program," Boelkes said. "Ultimately, I realized the entire business world needed the extraordinary insights offered in this book."
With a near full employment economy, no organization can afford to turn a blind eye to bullying. Toxic behavior cannot be tolerated in any form. Organizations that want to inspire, attract and retain the very best talent available should encourage all employees to read "The WOW Factor Workplace". It just may be the most effective way to get everyone on the team engaged in creating a Best Place to Work.
"As I learned in combat, success depends on unleashing available talent and resources. Current leadership models are failing miserably to meet this goal. "The WOW Factor Workplace" is a powerful springboard to replace outdated thinking and find a better way that lasts."
-- Colonel Debra M. Lewis (US Army, Retired)
