CEO Tools

I first met Kraig in the early 1990's when I was doing start-ups and turnarounds and have used all of his tools with great success. I consider CEO Toolsone of my top 10 all-time favorite business books and recommend this to all of my clients. In my book and audio book , Managing Thought: How Do Your Thoughts Rule Your World?, I talk about the power of purpose and vision, being of service, seeking to understand, and celebrating success. CEO Tools does a great job of showing how to implement these practices in a business environment.

CEO Tools

Excellent book. I have bought approximately 80 books and have all my vice presidents and managers using it.

If you are leading a business, small, medium or behemoth, this book should be your reference "Bible" and be worn out before too long. It's scource is from a leader who has been "there" and has done "that" many times. Not much theory or academic nonsense...just the real world when your name appears at the very top of the "org chart" and you are wondering what to do. Buy it! Read it! Do it!

CEO Tools Raises the Bar for Business Books

Most business books tend to be long on theory and short on implementation techniques. Not so with "CEO Tools: The Nuts-n-Bolts of Business for Every Manager's Success." This new release not only offers more than a hundred practical ideas for becoming a better CEO or manager, it actually gives you the tools to do so through an attached CD-ROM. If a particular management tool or technique happens to strike your fancy, you can download a form or template and start using the tool in your business the very same day. Kramers believes that running a successful company requires using a variety of tools as part of an organized, disciplined management process. His process consists of seven discrete steps: 1) Use goals to motivate employees, 2) Communicate to get meaningful results, 3) Track performance, 4) Anticipate the future and realize it, 5) Place and coach winners, 6) Organize yourself and others, and 7) Celebrate success.Using this model as a framework, Kramers organizes "CEO Tools" around these essential steps. Each chapter contains an eclectic mix of ideas, tools and management practices for getting more out of employees and improving bottom line results. While many business books would stop here, Kramers takes it to the next level by offering numerous practical tips and techniques for implementing these principles.What really sets "CEO Tools" apart from other business books, however, is the companion CD-ROM (tucked inside the back cover) that contains more than two dozen forms, charts, spreadsheets and tracking templates. These easily downloadable tools enable you to immediately put Kramers' goal setting and other management concepts to work in your business, using your data and your key indicators. Ultimately, good management comes down to making the right decisions in a timely manner and then following through with appropriate action. "CEO Tools" is designed to help you do just that. Most of the tools and techniques discussed in the book come directly from Kramers' personal experience as CEO of eight different companies. Others come from ideas and practices he has picked up from consulting with companies of all sizes around the world. Regardless of where the tools come from, they all have one thing in common -- they work! Whether you're a business owner, CEO, senior manager or anyone in charge of managing and leading a group of people toward a common goal, this book belongs on your work bench, not on your shelf.
