Author Feature Jim Canfield: A Classic Rewrite of CEO Tools by Kraig Kramer  

Tags : 

Leading an organization to success and maintaining that success is no easy feat. People sometimes look at successful companies and think “Wow, that’s a great company,” without thinking about how that company became a success. Executive leaders often find themselves scrambling to create a winning strategy that will take their company to the next level.

But what if there was a manual to help you answer questions like: Is your business positioned to profit in tough times? Can you make sense of what your CFO is telling you? Do you know what really creates sales in your business? Do you know how to hire, grow, and keep top talent? If you’re an Executive Leader and want to confidently answer those questions, CEO Tools by the late Kraig Kramer, updated and rewritten by Jim Canfield, may be just the book you need.

Meet Jim Canfield: Managing Director of CEO Tools, Author and Executive Coach

As managing director of CEO Tools and consultant to Aprio LLP, a CPA-led advisory firm, Jim provides winning strategies and business performance tools that empower CEOs to drive profitable growth. He brings a unique blend of experience, including extensive learning in leadership theory and practice as well as “been there, done that” practical experience from running several companies.

Jim has a long history of working with Executive Leaders. Before joining CEO Tools, Jim served as CEO of Renaissance Executive Forums, a leading membership organization for CEOs. He also worked with Vistage, the world’s largest CEO organization, as Chief Learning Officer and VP of west coast operations. He facilitated several CEO groups in Memphis, for which he won a “Chair Excellence” award. He has also logged over 10,000 hours as an executive coach.

When he’s not working, Jim enjoys a variety of hobbies including golf, cooking, yoga, and competitive athletic events. His goal this year is to compete in at least one competitive event every month in 2017. So far, these events have included several 5k races, a 32-mile bike race, a sprint triathlon, and an obstacle course race.

We were excited when Jim came to The Book Professor and wanted to rewrite Kraig Kramer’s, CEO Tools. The new version is titled CEO Tools 2.0.  It is updated with a new format and new case studies from companies that have followed and benefited from the book since its original publication.

It’s a challenge to take a classic business book that is known and loved by thousands and update it. The goal is to remain faithful to the original concepts and constituency, while attracting new readers to the work. Jim and his colleagues at Aprio will use the CEO Tools content as a launchpad for a suite of online tools, workshops, presentations, and a certification program for coaches and consultants.

 This book will be available in January! Stay tuned for its release date—you won’t want to miss this one! If you or someone you know has always wanted to write a book, reach out to us, and we will help you make it happen!

What Type of People Do We Work With?

Tags : 

I’m often asked when I meet aspiring writers: what type of people do you work with? This is an easy question for me. At the risk of being labeled an idealist, I sincerely believe that all of our problems—and I mean all of them—can be solved, and that the answers are trapped inside of everyday people like you. When you share what you know and what you’ve learned, you become the solution. At The Book Professor, we help aspiring authors write non-fiction books that will change lives, save lives, and transform society. Whether you’re a business leader, an overcomer, a public speaker, or you want to write your personal memoir, we know exactly what you need to do to write your book. Join us over the next couple of months as we highlight the clients my team and I serve every day.

The Business Leader

You’ve been a professional and a leader for quite some time and have learned a few things along the way, haven’t you? Your years of experience, education, ideas, and expertise are what other impassioned leaders need in order to gain the success that you’ve achieved. Perhaps you’ve already been a mentor to others, and you know that what you know could benefit more than you can reach in person. If you want a greater influence, you need a bigger platform! It’s time to take your solution and help others solve the problems they can’t fix on their own.

Why Should a Business Leader Write a Book?business leader

As a business leader with years of experience, you know deep down that you’re a true leader. Writing a book helps to establish yourself as an expert with those who don’t know your talent.

Business leaders write a book for a number of reasons:

  1. You have something to share that will benefit others.
  2. You want to leave a legacy that will impact the future.
  3. You see others struggle and have learned how to overcome obstacles.
  4. You want to showcase your business and the path to success.

Listen to what our writer, David J.P. Fisher, author, business leader, and entrepreneur had to say after he wrote his first book Networking in the 21st Century: Why Your Network Sucks and What to Do About It:

“Writing the first book was definitely a big hurdle, but I found that it was like running a marathon. Once you do one, you look back and want to do it again. I’ve published three shorter books in the ten months after publishing my first book, and there are more on the way. It’s definitely helped build my professional credibility and stature as an expert in my field.”

What do you have to lose? When will there ever be a better moment than now? It’s time to build your personal brand and establish yourself as the expert you are.

If you’re a business leader that has always wanted to write a book, reach out to us, and we can help you take the next step!
