KISS THEORY GOOD BYE

NEW BUSINESS BOOK GIVES TEXTBOOK THEORY THE BIG KISS OFF!

Business Expert Writes the Playbook on 'How To' Rapidly Increase Performance and Profit in Any Company.

Bob Prosen cuts like a laser through the fog of political correctness and business-as-usual in his new book, Kiss Theory Good Bye: Five Proven Ways to Get Extraordinary Results in Any Company.

Prosen says he's had enough of the business books that tell readers what to do rather than how. "Forget the platitudes and feel-good anecdotes from a few CEOs and business gurus. Get to the point, the how-to details that can actually help leaders get the results they need in the companies they run," Prosen counsels.

With the same genius that he used to turn around inherited, underperforming operations within 12 to 18 months in some of the world's most prominent companies including AT&T, Sprint, Hitachi, NCR, and Sabre, Prosen delivers a straightforward, no-nonsense, battle proven guide to accelerate performance and profits in any organization.

"A smart business leader can achieve unprecedented bottom-line results by forsaking abstract discussions and vague textbook theory, shutting down endless excuses, killing off company politics, holding people accountable, and simply doing things that clearly work," says Prosen.

Kiss Theory Good Bye shows you how to quickly and consistently achieve extraordinary results in leadership, sales effectiveness, operational excellence, financial management, and customer loyalty.

Packed with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions, this book will show you how to

*Achieve consistent results, quarter after quarter
*Align your entire workforce to meet the organization's top objectives
*Increase accountability so you get the results you need
*Attract and retain top talent
*Beat your competition and lock in customer loyalty
*Reduce costs while increasing quality
*React less and have more time to plan
*Make your job easier and your organization run more smoothly

Contrary to the book's seemingly corporate focus, readers quickly point out that his business execution principles apply equally to not-for-profit organizations. As Los Angeles Unified School District Business Manager Michael A. Eugene reports, "Kiss Theory Good Bye is a compelling read, offering a toolbox to public- and private-sector managers alike to help establish clear focus, increase accountability, effective management, and measurable outcomes."

While other business books try to tell you what to do to run your business better, faster and for greater profit, Bob Prosen's Kiss Theory Good Bye gives you the tools and step-by-step directions to make it happen. For leaders who demand superior results, Kiss Theory Good Bye delivers the goods for taking immediate, and lasting, action.

My goal for sharing my knowledge and experiences is to give you the answers you need to immediately enable your enterprise to achieve its full potential. Leaders want their ideas and initiatives consistently carried out without hassle and rework. They want accountability, and value results over theory. I wrote Kiss Theory Good Bye with two principles in mind. First, theory would be replaced with proven tools, tactics, and answers that get results. Second, all of the information must be relevant and directly applicable to today's business challenges without the need for translation.

Until now this information has only been available piecemeal, leaving you to find, assemble, and translate it to fit your business. You might have gathered some of it through mentors, by trial and error, or by surviving the "school of hard knocks." But by the time you finish reading Kiss Theory Good

From the Publisher:

It is exciting to publish a book that gives leaders everywhere what they have been searching for. Kiss Theory Good Bye by Bob Prosen is the real "how to" book on business execution. The journey began with Jim Collins’ book Good to Great that explained Why some companies did well. Shortly thereafter, Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan co-authored EXECUTION that told What some companies did well. Now we have the third and final component, Kiss Theory Good Bye, which shows How Your Company can rapidly increase performance and profits.

From the Author:

I wrote this book to give you proven strategies and techniques to consistently accomplish your goals profitably and ethically.

Whether you are the leader of a Fortune 1000 company, the owner of a privately held business, the leader of a not-for-profit organization, or a manager or supervisor within a department, top leaders share a set of common goals. We want to be part of a successful organization that consistently achieves its objectives. We want to make our work easier and more fulfilling. We want all of our employees working collaboratively to achieve the organization’s objectives, have fun, react less, and be proud members of an enterprise that is respected and admired.

We all want to be part of a company where employees look forward to coming to work and being part of a bigger mission. We want to create an environment where everyone’s ideas and talents are sought after and respected, where trust is high, politics are kept to a minimum and people are fulfilled.

Profitability enables organizations to have the freedom of choice. Organizations that operate with integrity and consistently achieve their financial and operating objectives are respected and admired. Their performance allows them to take better care of employees, customers, and shareholders. Profitability in and of itself is not the ultimate objective. It’s only the enabler. The real goal is to have choices. Their reputation allows them to attract top leadership, employees, and board talent. They are also able to give back to society to help make the world a better place.

This book is about doing. It actually shows you how to work smarter, not harder. Doing it right is a fulfilling, empowering, rewarding, and deeply gratifying experience. I am honored to share this information with you and it is my sincere belief that it will allow you to achieve results that count.
