If people you work with get upset by what you say, is it your fault or theirs?
What’s more important in business—getting results or making your employees happy?
What would you do if you were hired to make changes, but people complained about those changes and the way you made them?
Eighteen months ago, Tom was hired to shake things up. Under his leadership, the company's profits increased and business boomed, but in the process he upset quite a few people. Several of his direct reports quit, and other departments didn't want to work with him or his team. In an effort to save his job and reputation, Tom reluctantly begins working with an executive coach. Get an inside look at Tom’s journey working with his coach as he searches for solutions to the questions above and is challenged to change the way he views his world. (R)evolution is full of discovery, candor, and insight that will inspire and surprise you.

“A quick read that takes the mystique out of the executive coaching process. Excellent.”
Chief People Officer, US Olympic and Paralympic Committee
“Many of us will recognize a 'Tom' within our organizations, and perhaps, within ourselves. Conrad’s book offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the coaching process, which when applied effectively with a motivated (even if resistant) leader, can convert even a skeptic into the type of leader with whom we all hope to work.”

"(R)evolution was a great read. Written as a story made it very intriguing and really forced me to rethink some of my approaches. I teach leadership and I have begun to use some of the concepts in my classes and coaching sessions."
