No Feet In Concrete Breaks the Mold of Conventional Management

Challenging the theory of traditional management models, a new book titled No Feet in Concrete: Leadership In An Entrepreneurial World is empowering managers and their staff to develop leadership styles tailored to their specific enterprises. The recently published book denounces the practice of using "copy-cat" management strategies and outlines a new process for developing a specific organizational leadership strategy based on individual qualities such as staffing, opportunities, strengths and objectives.

Dr. John Boogaert developed this process while coaching management and leadership teams through organizational growth, leadership transitions, and product line launches. "Managers are constantly frustrated because they have tried to cram their companies and employees into someone else's model for success," says John. "We naturally admire successful leaders and their enterprises, but instead of focusing on what they did to achieve success we need to focus on how they figured out what worked for them."

According to John, an organization in the rapidly evolving entrepreneurial world must be focused on dramatic change all the time in order to survive. It must seek to continually reinvent itself and its market as a way of life. To do this, company leaders must develop new paradigms, provide new vision, and above all, inspire focus on the critical issues without becoming distracted.

It is becoming increasingly impossible to be a successful manager using the same old attitudes, ideas and management strategies. No Feet in Concrete: Leadership in an Entrepreneurial World is a must read for anyone wanting to break out of the "management mold" and become a leader in today's rapidly changing world.
