Warrior Spirit Can Drive Teams And Companies Toward Success

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Warrior Spirit Can Drive Teams And Companies Toward Success

Have you been labeled a bully, abrasive or worse at work? Workplace Warrior: People Skills for the No-Bullsh*t Executive helps tough bosses channel their “Warrior Spirit” and provides the tools you need to survive, thrive and lead your teams to greatness in an age of political correctness.

Being the boss has never been harder. Recent events in the corporate world, Hollywood and politics have focused negative attention on the kind of tough, demanding leaders who used to be valued for getting things done, labeling many as bullies and accusing them of fostering a “hostile workplace environment.” They are demeaned and called names, as society demands that they change their ways.

But what if the very thing that makes them so abrasive is also their superpower?

Master Corporate Executive Coach and speaker Jordan Goldrich believes it is, and explores this theory in his new book, Workplace Warrior: People Skills for the No-Bullsh*t Executive (Greenleaf Book Group; October 1, 2019). Written specifically for executives who have been labeled abrasive or accused of workplace bullying, the book shows leaders how to protect themselves while remaining completely authentic, channeling their high standards and relentless drive into success for their teams and their companies.

“These executives have what I call a warrior spirit, which I believe is critical for businesses and organizations in our volatile, complex, uncertain, ambiguous (VUCA) environment,” explains Goldrich. “I wrote this book to challenge them to become better warriors, which means learning to lead with humility and protecting others who cannot protect themselves.”

In the book, Goldrich offers executives the simple option of doing the least they can do, whether their goal is to protect themselves in a world of political correctness, or to do the right thing for their organizations and their people. Specifically, he explains:

• The four types of no-bullsh*t executives, and what drives their communication style
• Understanding the “mental models” that shape people’s reactions
• How to hold employees accountable without being accused of bullying
• Simple ways to improve communication skills
• Secrets to cultivating compassion (even for people you don’t think deserve it)
• And much more
As inspiration, Goldrich invites readers to compare themselves to who he calls “the greatest warriors on the planet,” the Navy SEALs, Green Berets and others who are committed to taking charge, leading the way and accomplishing the mission, no matter what.

“In my experience working with these executives, I have found that most of them do not want to hurt people. They simply have a work ethic that accepts nothing less than always giving their all, and they expect the same from everyone around them. This book will help them communicate this without making others feel disrespected or demeaned, which will improve both quality and morale.”

Workplace Warrior: People Skills for the No-Bullsh*t Executive meets executives who get labeled abrasive or bullies where they are, providing the tools they need to decrease the unintended negative impact of their warrior spirit without tempering their passion or lowering their standards, helping them take their leadership to a higher level. It’s also for Human Resource Executives, Executive Coaches, or anyone working for or with a Workplace Warrior boss.

Jordan Goldrich helps leaders end dysfunction so their teams can do great things. He is a speaker, Chief Operations Officer and Master Corporate Executive Coach (MCEC) who partners with senior executives to drive results while developing their organizations, teams and the next generation of leaders. He specializes in helping valuable executives who are experienced as abrasive to increase their effectiveness while changing their impact. Jordan is a partner in CUSTOMatrix as well as Senior Executive Coach with the Center for Creative Leadership.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Book Reveals The Authentic Formula For Personal And Professional Success

Laguna Beach, CA ― Why do some people dive, some survive and others thrive? The answer, Randall Bell, Ph.D., reveals, is surprisingly simple: choices.
Bell, a socio-economist and the CEO of Landmark Research Group, has developed an easy-to-follow formula for authentic growth and success based upon 25 years of behavioral research.
In his book, Me We Do Be: The Four Cornerstones of Success, Bell masterfully interweaves stories from his consulting work on high-profile cases — including Chernobyl, the World Trade Center, and O.J. Simpson — with findings from behavioral studies and his own survey of 5,000 people to reveal the daily habits that can make or break both personal and professional growth and success.
In Me We Do Be, Bell explains that all behaviors can be organized into four cornerstones:

• Me is quality thinking that builds wisdom.
• We habits form quality relationships.
• Do actions build productivity.
• Be designs the future.

There is no one-size-fits-all definition of success. For some, it’s making money. For others it’s having a loving family, winning a competition, completing a degree or beating cancer. The power of Me We Do Be is that it connects all the dots and creates a fresh perspective for moving forward, allowing readers to define what success means to them as individuals, while sharing the foundational elements that apply to everyone.

Previously, the author led a national practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers, the world’s largest consulting firm. He has consulted on hundreds of cases, including the Flight 93 Crash Site, the BP Oil Spill, Hurricane Katrina and the nuclear testing at Bikini Atoll.

Often a guest of the media, Bell has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, People magazine, The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, CNN, World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, 20/20, Entertainment Tonight and by newscasters on every major television network.

Conquer Change And Win: Learn How To Embrace Change To Live A Happier, More Fulfilled Life

Morristown, TN – Learn what 90% of Americans have no clue about. Be the last person standing in the room by knowing how change affects our emotions and feelings. Conquer Change and Win will show you how to control your reaction to those emotions and feelings that all change always causes. The result will be a happier and more fulfilled life. This information will give you a leg up on making more money and having less stress in your life.

Every one of us is constantly affected by change. Change never stops, and no matter if it’s positive change or not, our first reaction is usually fear. The truly successful people of the world have a good understanding of change and how to make it work to their advantage. In his latest book, Conquer Change and Win, best-selling author Ralph Masengill gives readers an easy-to-read, fun book about the serious subject of change.

In forty-plus years as a consultant, coach, advisor and public relations strategist, Masengill has observed that successful people share two characteristics. First, they are willing to take a calculated risk and endorse positive change on a regular basis. Secondly, they have learned how change affects their emotions and how to overcome the fear of change.

“I believe the happiest and most successful people do not necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have,” Masengill says. He urges readers to choose change. “It is the path to true happiness and business success. Understanding how change works can alter your life for the better and give you a solid advantage.”

An advisor, coach, marketing expert, business consultant and public relations strategist, Masengill understands how companies work from within. He has the wisdom of one who has made the journey of sustained success himself, leavened by an ethics-based philosophy of helping others and the community around him. Masengill’s life story is one of personal challenge, tragedy, and triumph. His professional career has been defined by great success in both the private and public sectors. His agency, Masengill Marketing Associates, has won over 850 national and regional advertising and marketing awards.

One of the original change agents in the United States, Masengill and his team have been observing change and showing business leaders that embracing and understanding positive change is the sure route to effective quality improvement and substantial profit enhancement for decades. This extensive experience formed the basis for Conquer Change and Win, his second book.

A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Masengill’s postgraduate work includes the Dr. W. Edwards Deming course on quality and quality management. He and his wife Dianne live near the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. They have four grown children, two dogs and a cat. Masengill enjoys woodworking, oil painting, sailing and helping with his favorite charities in his spare time.
