Never Fly Solo - Hardcover Book
New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller on creating cultures of trust, commitment, and mutual support. This book will help you break performance barriers, build trusting partnerships and maximize your potential.
Whether you are a senior executive, a mid-level manager, entrepreneur or a new hire fresh out of college, your success depends on the support of trusted associates to help you maximize your potential and reach the top. The belief that maverick leaders and self-made entrepreneurs set the bar is no longer relevant in today’s volatile business world. While self-leadership is critical to success, no one performs at their highest level without the support of equally skilled partners.
Fighter pilots call these partners wingmen.
Like the world of aerial combat, today’s high stakes business world operates faster than the speed of sound. Teamwork and trust are critical to overcome the missiles of adversity, fear and change. Like a fighter pilot, you too need wingmen to help you to conquer these missiles and take positive action that will lead to success.
In Never Fly Solo, former combat decorated fighter pilot Lt. Col. Rob “Waldo” Waldman shares business critical concepts for success and delivers a very human message: we all have missiles in life to overcome and we can’t do it alone.
But it’s not just about survival. From trusted partners come better ideas, more opportunities and best practices. Their role looms larger than the accountability of a board of directors … reaches deeper than the advice of a mentor or trainer … and stands firmer than the contribution of an employee. Trusted partners have the greatest power to expand your performance because they are as vested in your success as you are theirs.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, seasoned executive or simply looking to enhance your current personal relationships, Never Fly Solo will help you learn to:
- Recommit to the core wingman values of integrity, accountability, and service.
- Transform relationships among colleagues into trustworthy, interdependent partners for success.
- Recognize the critical importance of asking for help during times of adversity and change.
- Communicate effectively under high stress conditions at work.
- Identify courage building techniques to take action when the missiles of adversity are launched.
Never Fly Solo is a flight plan for success told through compelling real world stories that bucks the typical Hollywood fighter pilot image. This book will help you earn your wings as a high performance leader and form powerful relationships that will break through the ceilings keeping you or your company from soaring to new heights.
The book features best-selling authors Stephen R. Covey (Seven Habits of Highly Effective People) and Brian Tracy (Turbo Strategies). Waldman, Tracy, and Covey, are joined by other well known authors and speakers, each offering time-tested strategies for success in frank and intimate interviews.
