Meet the Founder
"I developed the Successful Manager program for two reasons:
One, I've never forgotten one of my direct reports telling me, 'You're the best boss I ever worked for; you ought to write a book about motivation.'
Two, when I was teaching Organizational Behavior at Northeastern, a colleague mentioned the need for a book that explains to managers proven motivational techniques from 100 years of research studies.
The Successful Manager program is designed to meet both requirements. I believe it will be a great help to managers who enroll in it."
