Logos CEO Shares Business Lessons...
Why "Fire Someone Today"?
What kind of title is Fire Someone Today for a book by a Christian business leader? You'll find out in Chapter 1, where Bob explains how keeping people in the wrong position is really selfish leadership. More than twenty other chapters address business issues in four categories - People, Leadership, Finance, and Operations - using stories from Logos Bible Software and businesses run by other entrepreneurs Bob knows.
Filled with hands-on advice and practical examples from real businesses, the book takes a no-nonsense approach to the uncomfortable decisions and actions that every manager, business owner, or entrepreneur must face.
The chapter titles for Fire Someone Today came from scribbled notes on napkins and receipts. The book contains the practical wisdom I learned from long lunches with other entrepreneurs and from making lots of mistakes of my own. It is about making the right decisions in good times and bad and it is full of practical examples from real businesses. If you took me to lunch to talk about a business issue, this is the advice you would get. —Bob Pritchett, President, Logos Bible Software
