More than they hired in the last two decades. Bankruptcies and fraud abound. In today's tumultuous business environment, managers want guidance in the form of a timely theme, a unique and memorable metaphor, and outside-the-box-thinking. That's precisely what Corporate Canaries delivers. A century ago coal miners hung canary cages in their tunnels. The little birds went silent and dropped when poison gas seeped into the mine, offering workers a warning of the lurking dangers. In the same way that canaries protected miners, the principles in Corporate Canaries will protect companies by alerting executives and managers when their businesses are headed for real trouble. The book features five core chapters revealing five common business hazards, and each lesson is accompanied by a story based on the author's grandfather's work in the coal industry, as well as an applicable "canary warning" for each theme.
When your business hits trouble, can you recognize the warning signs?
A century ago, coal miners brought canaries into the mines for danger warnings. At the first hint of poisonous methane gas, the little birds stopped chirping . . . and many miners were saved.
Your business faces invisible threats too. With equal doses of insight from Gary Sutton's experience as a hands-on, corporate turnaround CEO, and wisdom from his coal miner grandfather, this delightful volume helps you recognize trouble-before it's too late. In Corporate Canaries, Sutton reveals the five "canary warnings" that are a sure sign of trouble.
Sutton's successes are measured not in millions but in billions of dollars. He's breathed life into many flatlining organizations. The secret, he reveals, is recognizing the warning signs-and recognizing them early Once you empower everyone in your organization to become a "canary watcher," the success can be limitless.
With the wit of a storyteller and the credibility of a Wall Street hero, Gary Sutton spins that rare breed of business book: the kind you won't want to put down.
