Frank Kanu started out in sales before he decided to study computer science and later economics. As former CEO of three European corporations—including a management consulting firm and a software company—Frank has gathered, refined, and implemented his management strategy—a strategy that has met with success.
Over the past two decades he has worked with a number of Fortune/Global 500 companies to help executives improve success ratios and productivity levels. His client list includes IBM, TimeWarner, Akzo Nobel, Crown Holdings, Inc. and E.ON.
An award-winning speaker who enjoys sharing his insights with business leaders, Frank has lectured frequently and written articles for publications in the United States and Europe.
Besides spending his time with his lovely wife Ada and their three beautiful children, Frank enjoys skydiving, cycling and watching sports.
With former and current NFL players in the extended family the decision to become a youth football coach was a no-brainer.
He and Ada also love to cook and delight in surprising friends and acquaintances with their culinary skills.
In the fifth century B.C. the Greek philosopher Socrates perfected a method of teaching in which he would ask disarmingly simple questions that actually forced people to admit what they didn't know. This book has a number of questions that follow the Socratic tradition. The reason? Today's managers need more than the predefined answers we might think are correct, but which seldom fit the problem at hand.
