About the Author

Randy Dobbs rose to become CEO in a General Electric Company business with the encouragement and coaching of high-level executives including legendary GE Chairman Jack Welch. In a string of GE positions of increasing responsibility, Dobbs excelled as a turn-around specialist who transformed every organization he led and established a winning record of improved earnings. More recently, Dobbs used the same secret sauce to transform and improve earnings as CEO of Phillips Medical Systems, North America, and USIS, a leading global security services provider, where he led 7,000 knowledge workers to a new understanding of how to work together to achieve business results. Now a Senior Operating Executive at Welsh Carson Anderson & Stowe, one of the largest and most successful private-equity firms in the U.S., Dobbs leads leaders to exciting and profitable results.

Randy has written this book with gleaming and useful insights from massive companies, but leaders of entrepreneurial and emerging companies can learn a great deal from this read. While I don't agree with all his ideas, a lot of wisdom can be found between the covers. If you seek to take a promising business to the next level, this is a good read.

If you want to lead then you must read this book what makes this book so different is the personal stories (both successes and failures) that come form the heart and soul. Randy lived this kind of leadership his whole career. I worked both at GE and Philips and the energy level from Randy was 110% whether it was 7 AM or 11:00 PM One of the biggest takeaways from this book should be his passion for communicating throughout the whole organization. Many managers have great ideas but if you want to succeed you must get the whole organization behind those ideas and that is what Randy teaches time and again in this book.
This should be a must read when a new manager asks how he can get ahead in the business world.

Superior earnings results, the financial blood of all enterprise. Real life stories of total business transformations and leading by example. How does one get their GE corporate officer V.P. stripes personally from legendary CEO Jack Welsh, lose them, and have Jack give them back a 2nd time and in less than 24 months!?

Only through pure drive, determination and developing a matrix of success which the author learned through the ups and downs of developing and honing the components of transforming not only top global corporations, but himself along the way.

An exciting read and a journey I was privileged to be along for much of the ride on 3 different occasions over 25 years. Once I opened the book, I could not put it down until suddenly I ran out of pages to read. Hopefully there will be a sequel.

Regardless of your current status, that of leader or seeking a leadership role, Randy Dobbs book will inspire, motivate and compel you to think of your leadership responsibilities or ambitions in ways that perhaps you've never considered. His personal and professional experiences captured on the pages of this book speak to his highest achievements and his most prevalent disappointments in a very real and honest way. It's that honest insightfulness, coupled with the "lessons" he learned and the failures he overcame, that form the true "blueprint for organizational change" and "secret sauce success" that Randy shares. Randy's experiences will encourage you to keep (or find!) the passion, zeal and enthusiasm required for the high calling of leadership. Not everyone can do it, and those that are called to it are not immune to failure, disillusionment or setbacks. Go ahead, give it a read! There's a lot to gain from a tried and true leader such as Randy.

I was working at USIS during much of Randy Dobbs' time as CEO. AFTER reading the book, I can say that I learned a great deal more about the processes and procedures that Randy used to help move our corporation forward. I found his key points punctuated by real-world examples an excellent method to clarify his lessons and advice to leaders. And no doubt about it -- anyone tapped to lead an organization, from the church council to the major corporation, will take away ideas from Randy's book. From my perspective, I have seldom seen the critical role of communication in driving change explained in such a clear/concise way... along with plenty of examples from the real world to explain his points. I highly recommend this straight forward and well written guide to creating organizational success and lasting change.

There have been many books on leadership over the years and most of the lessons in this one (communication, candor, decisiveness) are not new. What makes this book standout is the clear and concise way in which these ideas are expressed and the concrete examples that the author provides. With the examples, I was able to identify numerous ways that I could make use of the principles in my own job.

In addition, I found the book to be very inspiring. The main message is that if you don't give up, face reality, and are transparent with your organization, you can transform a broken business. These are tried and true principles given fresh life by the author's account of his own experiences. Well worth the read.
