Review:

Caring Magazine Book Review Creating Reality: A Guide to Personal Accomplishment by Anthony C. Gruppo

Reviewed by Rochelle Haimes Caring/Fall/1997

Do not read this book if you want a theoretical, objective guide to principles of management and leadership, or blue-prints for strategic planning. Do read this book if you want a highly personal, thought provoking, and often amusing account of Anthony C. Gruppo's professional development and guiding principles of work and life.

The author is well known to NAHSC members as Senior Vice President and member of the Board of Directors of Henry S. Lehr, Inc. He represents the popular NAHSC insurance program, begun in 1986, that brought Lehr's services to human services providers. He has continued to contribute his time and talents to NAHSC and has been honored twice with the "Friend of Children Award."

The impact of the nonprofit arena on Gruppo's perspective is obvious and often referenced in this book of short chapters ! organized around concepts and principles of leadership, such as "Mission Possible," "Honor the Humanity," "Corporate Kindergarten," and "The Velveteen Executive." In the Foreword he admits that he wrote this book "for selfish reaons...afraid of someday losing my way, my sense of motivation, focus, and drive..." The distinctly motivational content, therefore, encourages the reader to consider many of the important aspects of being a leader, following dreams, and achieving goals.

Creating Reality is a personal conception of many familiar management, marketing, and leadership principles; the emphasis is on the related emotional issues, e.g., the importance of faith, humor, and facing fear. The author uses many examples from his own work history to illustrate learning that "customer service" means people caring about people. He credits his own mentors, as he underscores the importance of modeling as a leadership behavior. His first employer, his father, and his present employe! r are all included. He also offers other concepts that wil! l shape one's personal and work place life: a "skill package" that includes endurance and flexibility as basics to expand and develop; the importance of having a mission and vision statement for yourself; the suggestion of a personal marketing plan, as if one were the head of one' own organization, with a personal board of directors (a compatible group of people who challenge and check on your progress); and frequent references to the importance of humor, camaraderie, and recognizing accomplishments.

There are two aspects of this book that are especially engaging and that augment the concepts presented by the author. Gruppo includes several examples of techniques that he has used to manage, motivate, and build the sales team in his company. These methods are creative as well as humorous and can be applied to other "industries" with somje modification. One chapter, "Corporate Kindergarten", not only enhances the book's thesis, but also parodies more esoteric management gui! de books.

The author presents his personal mission statement; "to be a welcomed leader in any arena I choose to stand." With this book, he has succeeded in being welcomed in the arena of "leadership self-help" with this personal account of his professional development, growth, and guiding principles.

Rochelle Haimes, ACSW, provides consultation, training, and technical assistance to organizations and programs serving children, youth, and families. -- Publisher Comments

Caution: Read only if you want a highly personal, thought-provoking and often amusing guide to the principles of management and leadership. -- Rochelle Haimes, ACSW
