More Praise for Bob DeLisa and The Unforgettable Boss:

The Unforgettable Boss is a lot like Bob himself - approachable, to the point, and full of common sense. This book talks about all the things that take years of experience to learn. It breaks down the essential tasks of management - setting goals, managing teams, communicating, and evaluating and developing talent - in an accessible, easy to understand way. These are the things that all of us as managers - highly experienced, new to the job, or somewhere in between - must learn to do better."
- Greg Wolf, President - BHS Corrugated North America, Inc.

Bob has always been honest and straightforward. His messages, like the ones in this book, are filled with common sense and delivered with a generous helping of humor. You find yourself repeatedly thinking, "Why didn't I think of that?"
-Stephen Schwartz, Chairman of the Board and CEO S&S Worldwide

At least twice a day I find myself smiling after using Bob's fundamentals while thinking: Managing can be really easy. Reading the book is (almost) like having a coaching session with Bob: You leave with a bunch of useful tips, an appropriate portion of self-reflection and stronger than before the session.
- Stefan Morgenstern, President and CEO of MTU-Aero Engines North America

The result is a how-to guide that actually works!
