Book Launch Event
December 13, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
Chamber members are invited to join author Bob Selden for the launch of his new book …
Setting the Tone from the Top:
How director conversations shape culture
Co-authored with Dr. Melinda Muth, the book has a strong message for directors and senior managers, “Mean what you say, and say what you mean.” Today more than ever, people see through the ‘wordsmithed’ messages that so many directors and senior managers revert to when they have to get a tough or challenging message across.”
After reading an early draft, Sydney Finkelstein, Professor for Strategy and Leadership at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and author of the bestseller, Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent, commented: “What we say and how we say it has never been more important in this era of ‘fake news’. Muth and Selden cut through the clutter to provide road-tested and sage advice for board members and senior executives alike on how to communicate more effectively when the chips are down.”
