This book defines the basics of success-oriented management for every manager and every business owner. The desired outcome for readers is to increase their level of success in both, their professional and their personal lives.
The primary objectives are to streamline the management process, aid in avoiding the pitfalls that cause legal and human resource issues, and guide managers in the development of cohesive teams focused on success. In large and small business restructuring I have undertaken, the content of this book was invaluable and helped expedite the turn-around process.
The Practices and Strategies present within are the stepping stones to Management Success and allow business owners, executive, managers, management teams and staff to understand the basics of developing sound and success-oriented organizations.
The content of this book helps eliminate extended periods of trial and error.
Read this book, absorb and apply its content. Build strong and committed teams, and swiftly achieve success for yourself and your team.
The second edition of this book is currently in progress and is expected to be available in late-2018.
Note: The changes in the revision have been extensive enough to rename the book "Successful Leadership 101"
"Successful Management 101" is available on Amazon.com (search under Author's name), or by contacting me personally.
"SUCCESSFUL MANAGEMENT 101, THE MANAGER'S MANUAL"
Having spent much of my professional life helping people achieve their goals, I would like to thank those who contributed so much to my personal and professional success:
My grandmother, with whom I spent my formative years was most inspirational as she taught me that "anything is possible" and that "you reap no more than you sow." My great-grandfather. Ludwig Krippner, a Bavarian to the core, taught me the importance of balancing life and work.
Mr. James Gillis, during my two-years at White Sands Missile Range, taught me that success was "a process of never-ending trials until the desired results were achieved." We created accurate missile trajectories.
Dr. Carl Inoway, University of Utah and founder of ASSIST, Inc., inspired me to dig deep in my research, understanding that "the answers will eventually surface if you just keep digging," and they did.
Mr. Adnon Khashoggi taught me that "one can never dream too big". Adnon helped me understand the world is often not as it seems, and to "listen intently to the words that are not spoken." He appointed me to my first executive position as V.P. of Triad Center Systems Corporation. He continues to be an inspiration. After all, Donald Trump bought his personal yacht, the' Nabila', in 1987, for $33 million, and then bought Adnon's Trump Tower condominium which is now the top two floors of President Trump's home.
Mr. Sammy Freeman educated me to success-oriented management strategies and tactics during my tenure at Sprint. Much of the content of my first book was learned by working with Sammy and Mr. Vic Koppang in restructuring failing West-Coast offices at Sprint Communications. He also taught me to "Always be the best dressed person in the room." Sammy was perhaps the most influential individual in my business success.

SUCCESSFUL MANAGEMENT 101
The Book that assures managerial and entrepreneurial success in today's highly competitive business environment.
Includes tracking data and forms to help create your route to Success.
William Esrey, during the build-out of the Sprint Telecommunications global fiber-optics network, taught us to "NEVER ACCEPT NO" for an answer, as he mentored our fast-track management team. Against all odds, including Wall Street disagreement regarding fiber-optics, Sprint succeeded in building the best telecommunications network of that time, the first national fiber-optic telecommunications network.
There are many others who contributed immensely, and I thank them all for what they taught me and the success they helped me achieve. Life's lessons never cease to provide inspiration.
As my CV indicates, the industries of my business engagement are as diverse as they were fulfilling.
Following rewarding career experiences in the corporate world, I moved to entrepreneurial endeavors where I founded or acquired a number of ventures, and where I refined the corporate and organizational rebuilding skills to help 'failing entities with possibilities' rebuild and succeed in commerce. Teaching and educating our youth, along with writing and photography may be my final ventures, but there may be one more deal waiting to be done.
In addition to the business world, my personal activities included competitively running 10K and Marathon races, racing bicycles, and auto racing. On the right-brain side, I am the author of: "Successful Management 101". A book of poetry and prose, "Love & Disdain", is scheduled for mid-2019 release. Works in progress include: "Successful Leadership 101, 2nd Edition", and rewriting the lost manuscript of "Bad Timing", my first book which I completed in 1983, packed away in a trunk in 1985 during the move to Seattle, and found in July, 2018.
