"Action creates clarity"
The rest of the book was a rehash of all other management books. I can only imagine that he is a good speaker and he gives away his books to get the sales rankings.
- treat your customers well
- a successful business has a differentiator
- don't procrastinate too much with too much planning just jump in and deal with what comes up.
The book itself seems to be a 200+ page marketing brochure for the author's consulting practice.
Lots of name dropping of business leaders he's met (good to set the scene for his consulting practice to be seen rubbing shoulders with leaders in business)
Lots of name dropping of business leaders whom I'm guessing he wants as his clients; I mean, hey if an author goes to the trouble of blowing smoke up your arse in a book, you'd want to at least meet him right?
Luckily I borrowed this book from the library.
Yesterday the book jumped off my library shelf and I re-read. Wow...is this a fine book for the times that have evolved since the book was published!
We have entered turbulent times, or as I refer to them with my consulting clients, "whitewater times." All assumptions must be re-examined, and quickly. Few, if any, of the old ways of doing business will be right for prospering in tough times. Author Peter Sheahan's six prescriptions are suddenly even more valuable.
His core concept that action creates clarity ("to move forward you must act in spite of ambiguity") will be key to surviving in whitewater times. This mantra creates a much needed bias toward action at a time when many are likely to be frozen in fear.
Until the arrival of the flood of books that can be expected on prospering in tough times, this book's fundamentals will be helpful in creating a strategy for businesses to cope with these tough times.
