'Machete Moments' by Doug Otto is Released
In today's fast-paced environment, executives and managers often find themselves in crises that require immediate and sometimes revolutionary action. The days of having time to allow situations to evolve to acceptable conditions are, in many cases, gone. It is necessary to turn those negatives into positives in a short time.
Former manufacturing and nonprofit executive Doug Otto provides readers insight in a world of uncertainty and change in his new book, "Machete Moments: A Turnaround Manager: Burned Out at Fifty-Four-Turned On for the Next Eighteen Years".
"Machete Moments" is a story about turnarounds - in business and non-profit management, and in life itself. For those facing the difficult professional and personal transitions in life (or those unsure as to whether embark on such a transition), this uplifting story based on Otto's experiences will inspire a true sense of courage and conviction.
"I wrote this book as a way to reach out to those facing 'turnaround moments' in their lives and careers," said Otto. "'Machete Moments' is all about seizing those critical situations and moving forward in the best way possible."
