About the Author
For over three decades, Jack Pachuta has been a participant and an avid observer of corporate America. In addition to working in radio and cable television, and with an international turbine-generator manufacturer, Jack was the vice president of training and project management for a company named one of Forbes Magazine's "200 Best Small Companies." Currently, he is the owner of Management Strategies, Inc. in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, a training, consulting and professional speaking company. In these roles, he's been behind the closed doors of many organizations, analyzing operations and making recommendations for needed changes. Jack is a Vietnam era veteran, having served as an officer in the United States Army Signal Corps. Later, as a government contractor, he collected and compiled information used by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to evaluate strategic nuclear weapons in Europe. Today, he assists people in becoming better communicators, negotiators and team players. Holding masters degrees from both the University of Southern California and Michigan State University, Jack's clients have included ShopKo Stores, Jockey International, Maytag, Kaytee Products, The Asia Pacific Institute for Management Development in Singapore, Thomson Audio Products Hong Kong, Multi-Finance of Athens, Greece, Connex of Romania, and many more. This mixture of experience gives Jack a one-of-a-kind perspective on the how people function and succeed within organizations - and how organizations succeed or fail based upon the people within their structures. A past president of the Wisconsin chapter of the National Speakers Association, Jack has provided his insights to audiences around the world. Many people also know him through his murder mystery events, which he authors and sells via the internet, a second career that also requires Jack to use his "powers of deduction" to solve a case while working with a diverse audience.

it and then offers "prescriptions" for how to re-set your sails for success. It will challenge the reader to dismiss the "That's the way we always did it" attitude and seek pro-active approaches toward goal achievement with a "team" spirit. Jack Pachuta's book should be mandatory reading in business schools. The author also offers real life examples from his extensive career with numerous organizations. This is one of those books that will be on my office bookshelf where I can reference and re-read it.
