About the Book

Sam Brown thought it was just another day like any of the other days he’d had of late. Most of what was happening inside his place of work had little to do with him and everything to do with external events. Sam Brown represents the global employee fighting to stay ahead while trying to stay afloat. He knew he was in the midst of tremendous change and for once, sought solace, in his evening MBA course. He just wanted time to breathe and relax away from the job. He would get his wish, but not in the way he hoped.

Take the Lull by the Horns! is a modern day story that is taking place in the business sector and captures the true issues being confronted by thousands of managers across a spectrum of industries. When things are, seemingly, out of control, the tendency is to grab on, hunker down and hold on for dear life. However, in a global business environment, hunkering down means that the organization and its leaders missed the lull that preceded the competitive storm. It is the facts within the fable that make Take the Lull by the Horns such a wonderful addition to the business mind. It will serve as a reminder to thousands that the real answers for many business issues are swirling around us all the time. This book dares us to look within before we look beyond.
