Looking for a publisher/agent for my new leadership book represents a culmination of my 38-years long endeavor helping top leaders in top companies worldwide manifestly improve their performance.
The Leadership Talk: 7 Days to Motivating People to Achieve Exceptional Results, Quick Start.
It introduces the Leadership Talk to leaders struggling to get outstanding results. Representing a category-change in leadership communication, the Leadership Talk is decisively different from the presentation. It is so much more effective in helping leaders produce outstanding results that it will garner the brand-to-generic transformation that has characterized wildly successful trademarked products, such as Kleenex, scotch tape, zipper, and elevator.
The book will own the brand, and the brand will be the leadership rule. Because all organizations sorely need exceptional leadership, significant book sales will accrue especially in areas where for decades my instructions have garnered rave reviews.
I’ve had published 23 books along with a play produced at New York’s Third World Theater, and a folk musical on the radio. My publishers include Doubleday, Houghton Mifflin, John Wiley, Scholastic, Simon & Schuster, and The Dial Press. My book, Executive Speeches: 51 CEOs Tell You How to Do Yours, has been called “a classic” by the Public Relations Journal and is being used in many educational venues worldwide. My leadership book, The Leadership Talk, was a national finalist for the Independent Book Publishers Association and won “Best Personal Growth Book of the Year” awarded by the San Francisco Independent Publisher Association. As founder and president of The Filson Leadership Group, Inc., I have worked with leaders of all ranks and functions worldwide, have published hundreds of articles on leaderships and have been on upwards of 200 radio/tv programs talking about my special leadership vision.

Leadership is critical to job and career success. However, having worked with leaders of all ranks and functions in top companies worldwide for some four decades, I have discovered most leaders spend their entire careers leading in the wrong ways. In doing so, they fail to embrace their full capabilities. Their failures, he observes, are due to two factors: an adherence to order-leadership and a devotion to information-overloading presentations. Brent has developed another way of leadership that leaders have found stunningly effective. It’s called the Leadership Talk. When leaders replace their commonplace presentations with motivational Leadership Talks, they move from order-giving/information-dump ways to achieving exceptional results.
I have five books, three are award-winners, and six guides on the Leadership Talk; but in Quick Start, I show how leaders can use a few Leadership-Talk processes right away for immediate results. It introduces Brent’s Leadership Talk to leaders struggling to get outstanding results. Representing a disruptive, category-change in leadership communication, the Leadership Talk is decisively different from the presentation as evidence toward by PowerPoint. As I tell my clients: “We must take PowerPoint and wring its neck!” Helping leaders produce outstanding results, it will garner the brand-to-generic transformation that has characterized wildly successful trademarked products, such as kleenex, scotch tape, zipper, and elevator.
