These are make-or-break times for business leaders and their organizations. Economic contraction and plummeting consumer confidence have made this a defining moment in the new economy. Whether you're a business owner, a manager, or a team leader—in any industry—you face unprecedented conditions and tough challenges daily.
Thriving in the New Economy gives you a unique look at what some of today's best economic and business minds are doing to stay ahead of the pack. Filled with profiles of top industry leaders, the book offers inspirational personal stories, useful advice, and actionable strategies you can use immediately to skirt financial peril, seize opportunities, and flourish in today's economy.
Take a tour inside the heads of some of the biggest names in business, including:
Financial publisher Steve Forbes
Vanguard Group founder Jack Bogle
Former director of the National Economic Council Larry Lindsey
Saks CEO Steve Sadove
Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. President Jim Lentz
Renowned economist David Malpass
Real estate industry leaders Don Peebles, Richard LeFrak, and Ron Peltier
And many more!
With a Foreword by H. Wayne Huizenga, founder of Waste Management, Inc., Blockbuster Video, and AutoNation and owner of the Miami Dolphins and with an Afterword by former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, Thriving in the New Economy offers the kind of business and leadership wisdom you'll find nowhere else. If you're struggling to stay afloat in these rough economic waters, this book offers safe passage—and a competitive advantage.
