"Bradt's message in this excellent and inspiring book is a 'golden ring' itself amidst the rubble often permeating our lives. It not only speaks true but makes you strive for more."--Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness
"Beautifully written and full of wisdom, The Ring in the Rubble is a gem."--Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Manager and Leading at a Higher Level
Change always creates hidden opportunities. A leader's job is unearthing them. In The Ring in the Rubble, change authority Gary Bradt reveals the secrets to moving beyond the rubble of disruption, fear, and uncertainty that change often creates, to finding the golden ring of opportunity that always lies beneath.
Each chapter of this breakthrough book delivers a powerful principle for leading change, supported by engaging real-life experiences of the author and other well-known business executives that illustrate how to put principles into action. Bradt asks penetrating questions that help you "dig deeper" and pinpoint the best ways for applying these principles to your specific change effort.
You will discover how Richard Schulze weathered a devastating event that threatened to destroy everything he'd worked so hard to build-and became the founder of Best Buy in the process. You'll see how a 65-year-old man, nearly broke after having suffered a string of disastrous setbacks, dug through the rubble to emerge as Colonel Harland Sanders, who remains the face of Kentucky Fried Chicken to this day. Change itself doesn't dictate the eventual outcome of your situation; how you think about and handle change is what makes all the difference. You'll never find the ring if you don't start digging!
