Brian Harman Relies on Storytelling, Humor, and a Splash of Vulgarity to Teach Leadership

His Book Aims to Help the Next Generation of Owners and Bosses

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Brian Harman works in supply chain management for a large multi-national pharmaceutical company. He relies on storytelling, humor, and a splash of vulgarity to instruct lousy business leaders in the art of leadership excellence.

Stepping aside from his day-to-day responsibilities, Brian recruited family and friends to help him write, publish, and promote a book he hopes will inspire a new generation of leaders who aren’t burdened with the bad habits of existing owners and bosses.

Brian’s book, How to Avoid a Leadersh*t, co-written with his cousin, Stephanie M. Taglianetti, uses an expletive in its title, just like the enormously popular bestseller, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*uck.

If foul language – or innovative thinking – offends you, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart suggests you skip this week’s episode.

CEOs, Celebrities, and Politicians Turn to One Man When Their Reputations Are on the Line

An Exclusive Interview with ‘The Fixer,’ Michael Sitrick of Sitrick And Company

[Listen and Profit Now™]

When a big time CEO, celebrity, or politician is thrust into an unwanted and unfavorable media spotlight, more than anyone else their first call goes to “The Fixer,” public relations guru Michael Sitrick, founder of Sitrick And Company.

Michael Vick called, as did Roy Disney, Rush Limbaugh, the Church of Scientology, and the Estate of Michael Jackson, among more than 1,000 other high-profile individuals and organizations.

Sitrick earned the nickname “The Fixer,” because like the fictional fixer in the movie Pulp Fiction, his reputation clients look to him to wash away the splatter and gore of their media messes. 

This week on Monday Morning Radio, Sitrick shares some of his most interesting cases with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, who as an award-winning former investigative reporter undoubtedly drove a fair share of business to Sitrick And Company or similar PR firms.
