The Never Ending Bookshop
At its NEW location: Perrinville Town Center, 7530 Olympic View Drive Unit 105 in Edmonds
The Never Ending Bookshop welcomes local entrepreneur and author, Gary Brose, at 1 p.m. with his book “Express Exec: A Novel Approach to Outrunning the Pace of Change.” He will discuss his book, do a reading, and take questions about his work and writing process.
Express Exec is unlike any business book you’ve ever read—a business book written as a novel. Business owners, CEO’s, middle managers and aspiring managers are overwhelmed today by the pace of business and the speed at which they must make decisions and follow through with massive change. For anyone finding themselves in that situation, Express Exec shows them a way through it.
Gary Brose, the author, has lived this life of constant change and learned through real-world trial and error, what works and what doesn’t. And, being old-school in many ways, he believes that people learn more from stories than instruction manuals. Express Exec is a short serious novel about a manager facing the need to make radical changes to increase productivity within six months. Failure will result in the company going out of business, so the need for rapid action is paramount.
Express Exec puts the reader in the shoes of the manager as changes are conceived, proposed and carried out with various degrees of success. The novel format gives the reader the chance to sit in on the strategy sessions of management and, more importantly, the group and one-on-one conversations between management and the employees. The readers get to experience “first-hand” all the angst, the fear, the resentment and resistance that the employees feel. These are hard lessons that the author already lived and now readers can experience them too—before they have to do it for real.
Gary Brose has also written “Bonus Your Way to Profits”, “The Ultimate Motivated Employee” and “How to Get a Raise”. He can be contacted at www.smallbizsherpa.com or for more information on Express Exec, visit www.ExpressExecBook.com.
