Not Business as Usual
In the current business climate of distrust, cynicism, and fear, Scott Weiss offers a radical challenge to those of us who lead others. His call for authentic leadership means dropping the mask of the Executive Persona as well as the camouflage and doubletalk of traditional corporate communications. It demands an end to our self-deceptions and the deception of others in the name of business as usual. Those who are brave enough to accept his DARE will discover...
• More loyal, satisfied clients and customers
• Reduced turnover and more
• engaged employees
• A more creative, innovative, and collaborative workplace
• Less personal conflict and more genuine relationships
• The passion to thrive, not just survive, in our professions
A courageous book that calls on leaders themselves to step up and make the changes that will rebuild trust and restore business integrity for customers, employees, and the global public.

''We are in the age of ordinary heroes; and from my little view of the world, authenticity is what separates ordinary heroes from the ''celebrity'' hero of the past few decades.'
—Ron Ricci, Corporate Vice President of Positioning, Cisco Systems
''Even though sometimes unpleasant, being honest, transparent and authentic builds trust the most important building block for sustainable relationship both in business and private life. Scott does a convincing job on why you must accept the DARE!''
—Arto Kuuslinen, Executive Partner, Accenture

—Jack Stahl, Former President and CEO, REVLON

—Coleman Breland, Chief Operating Officer, Turner Network Sales Turner Broadcasting
