No Cape Needed Earns Book Award
One of my favorite books by leadership communication expert David Grossman, founder and CEO of The Grossman Group, won the 2015 Best in Business Pinnacle Book Award, announced earlier this year.*
That impressive book is, No Cape Needed: The Simplest, Smartest, Fastest Steps to Improve How You Communicate By Leaps and Bounds. And, it’s for leaders at all levels.
“I’m humbled to be recognized for the book,” says David. “My hope is that the book will help leaders communicate in a more purposeful and authentic way to get more of the results they want, and create better workplaces with more humanity.”
Throughout the book and through a simple do/don’t format, David shares years of insights he’s gained as an executive coach and communications strategist to help leaders see how communication is truly a superpower in today’s business and financial environment.
“In my work with leaders across a range of Fortune 500 companies, I often hear strikingly similar frustrations,” says David. “Leaders come to me feeling stuck, unable to see a clear path through the dizzying array of challenges amid incredible demands on their time.”
Too often, David says those leaders end up getting in the way of progress, when there are easy communication fixes that could help them achieve their goals faster and more effectively than they ever imagined.
Finally, the book also features leadership advice from 20 senior leaders from inside some of the world’s leading organizations, including: Aston Marton, The Boeing Company, Compassion International, Motel 6, Nationwide Insurance, Starbucks, and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., to name a few.
