Everyone who wants a fulfilling career needs a mentor -- someone who has seen it all before, someone who can share hard-won experiences and teach valuable lessons.
In this expanded and enhanced version of his best-selling book, Monday Morning Leadership, David Cottrell packs all of the wisdom of his wide-ranging business experience into this inspirational story. Cottrell introduces us to Jeff, a successful corporate manager who has hit a major wall. Jeff has been leading his team, quarter after quarter, to great sales and better profits for several years -- until now. The tricks that used to work wonders have lost their magic; Jeff is in a slump and is at a loss to find his way out of it.
Overworked, stressed, and feeling that his personal and professional lives are at risk, Jeff reaches out to the father of a college buddy, a retired and tremendously accomplished former executive named Tony. Tony and Jeff agree to meet every Mondn copies. Born in Arkansas, Mercer now lives in New England with his family.
Building on the success of his self-published book, Monday Morning Leadership (a Business Week bestseller), David Cottrell presents a business parable that combines the wisdom of Jack Welch and Jim Collins with an inspirational tone reminiscent of Tuesdays With Morrie. Cottrell, President and CEO of CornerStone Leadership Institute, is an internationally-known leadership consultant, educator, author and speaker.
