"Frank's skill in asking the right questions is un-mistakable, and is at the core of his leadership philosophy.

The power of these questions cannot be underestimated, especially if you want to lead and not manage."

Author of New Business Management Book Announces Web Site for Leadership and Motivational Skills Training

Author of the business management training book "Stop Telling... Start Leading! The Art of Managing People by Asking Questions" now offers a web site with information on leadership and motivational skills training.
 

Charlottesville, VA March 24, 2006 -- Author Frank D. Kanu has announced a new web site to provide information on leadership and motivational skills training.

The web site at www.FrankKanu.com provides information about Kanu's newest book "Stop Telling... Start Leading! The Art of Managing People by Asking Questions" (ISBN 0-9774056-1-3), a business management training book.

Kanu said the information on his web site and in his book was inspired by the advice of Lee Iacocca and the teaching methods of Socrates.

"Iacocca said: 'Management is nothing more than motivating other people.' I combined that with the methods of teaching used by Socrates who taught his students by asking questions. It worked in the fifth century B.C. and it is as valid today as it was then," said Kanu.

His book and web site offer insights and techniques not found in management seminars, workshops, or training courses.

"Stop Telling... Start Leading" is designed to be used as a work book. It offers many open-ended questions to the manager, offering ways to evaluate and find the right course of action that leads to the desired goal. Kanu teaches managers to answer tough, pointed questions that force them to come to terms with their goals and manage more effectively with their team.

"Frank is the master of asking questions. Frank will change you and make you grow, some of the change you will like, other parts you will not like. But change you he will and change is good, you can only grow from change, good or bad," says Thomas Power chairman at Ecademy.com.

Kanu offers instruction through seven steps that he details in his book. These include: What Is Management? Know the Sins; Take Responsibility; What Do You Pay? Make Your Team Work; Change, Growth and Trust; and Bring the Fun to Work.

"Here we finally have a book that makes you stop, ask questions about yourself, your qualifications and habits as a manager and leader. Further, it makes you enumerate these qualifications and habits, thereby providing the basis for personal growth," said Mark Amtower of Partner, Amtower & Company and author of "Government Marketing Best Practices."
