Book Release Announcement - There’s a Moose in the Guard Shack
I am proud to announce the release of my (long awaited, at least by me) book: “There’s a Moose in the Guard Shack.”
Inside you will find some interesting and quirky characters, some anecdotes of situations that took place to and around me during my career in Leadership and Management which spanned some forty plus years. Following each anecdote, I expand the discussion with “what I took away” from the often hard to believe situations.
From the back cover:
“Didja ever hear ‘bout…, or ya ain’t gonna believe this s*#t, but…
I searched for years for guidance that represented a better approach to solving the day-to-day problems consuming a leader’s time. Eventually, I realized I possessed the answer.
During a staff meeting the light came on; I had experienced situations like the one being discussed—plus many we had previously encountered. I began to use my experience to solve new, but similar problems. Throughout my career in the military and manufacturing, when presented with a troublesome situation, I gathered my staff and direct reports and said: “Guys let me tell you a story.” I would then relate the facts, details and circumstances from one of my experiences. Then we, as a group, would discuss it and our approach to solving our problem.
“There’s a Moose” is exactly that—stuff happens and stuff gets solved—a common sense approach from my experiences over a career in leadership.
The adventures inside are all true. I know because I was there when they took place and often was the one to whom they took place.
These are just some of those stories, what I learned and what I took away from them.”
I hope you enjoy the tales, the remembrances and what I took away from them.
