Top Customer Reviews
The book is an easy read and, as the title suggests, the repair process is divided up into 12 different steps. My favorites being "Step 1: Take the Heat-Leader First" and "Step 8: Seize the Shift." The latter explaining how corporate crises can often be linked back to shifts in business climate that leaders failed to see or ignored.
Drawing on her work with Weber Shandwick, and citing numerous case studies (IBM, BP, Xerox, Tyco, and Boeing), Gaines Ross does an excellent job with Corporate Reputation.
In summary; no CEO should be handed the reigns of a company, until they've read all 160 pages of this brilliant book.
