the Two Hour leader
by Bill Carpentier

A ll field-based managers receive corporate leadership training of some kind. Yet, despite having completed the same training, some managers rise to the top rankings and some descend to the bottom or reach and sustain “average” for much of their career. WHY? This book is meant to be used as a supplement to your corporate training. You won’t find a lot of charts, graphs, and theory. You will find, however, ideas and strategies often not contained in corporate leadership programs. Infusing some of those ideas and strategies into your daily business plan will separate you from your peers and help empower you to achieve whatever goals you set for yourself. I spent nearly 30 years in various leadership roles. During that time I experimented with many different tactical and strategic methods. The ones that consistently worked best - that resulted in sustained high performance achievement - are the ones outlined for you here. At first glance, some may seem like common sense. But I have found, over the years, that common sense is not necessarily common knowledge. This book is for those leaders who believe that good performance isn’t good enough.
