post # 535 — April 23, 2008 — a Strategy and the Fat Smoker post

The ninth episode of my new podcast series, Strategy and the Fat Smoker, is now live and available for download.

It is dedicated to exploring the themes found in my new book by the same name. Each chapter will be accompanied by an executive summary ebook covering the same material. I encourage you to forward these to friends and associates who may be interested in the topics covered. If you are already a subscriber to my podcast feed, this pdf will be available in your itunes.

With Tyrants, Energizers and Cynics, we begin to look into problems in management and managerial cultures. Three leadership styles are examined, and the reasons why each is used are explored.
