Meet the Author

Hyler Bracey’s life journey has taken him from the cotton fields of Mississippi to President of the Atlanta Consulting Group. After doing everything from working on a tugboat and racing stock cars to owning a pair of cotton gins, in 1972 he formed the company along with Aubrey Sanford. Bracey received his Ph.D. from Louisiana State University in 1969 in management, marketing, and finance. Prior to that, he earned an MBA from the same institution in 1965 and a Bachelor of Business Administration/Marketing from Lamar University in 1964.

Jack Rosenblum is a nationally known management consultant who for over twenty years has been helping top teams learn to work together in harmony. Rosenblum received an Ed.D. in organization development from the University of Massachusetts in 1977. He earned a J.D. from Yale Law School in 1962 and an A.B. from Brown University in 1959. He joined The Atlanta Consulting Group as Vice President of Research and Development, in 1983. In prior careers, he was President of RSI, Inc., Chief of New York City’s drug prevention program for youth, and one of the first Peace Corps volunteers in Costa Rica.

Aubrey Sanford came from a small southern town and, through dedication and more than a little innate talent, has become one of the most entertaining, beloved, and effective seminar leaders in the country. Joining with Bracey to create The Atlanta Consulting Group in 1972, Sanford developed the knack of taking concepts like motivation, coaching, and listening, and devising ways for people to learn those skills experientially. His design work is reflected in all TACG workshops. Aubrey received a Ph.D. in Business Administration from Louisiana State University in 1970 after earning an MBA from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1966. He has coauthored three previous books: Human Relations: Theory and Practice, Organizational Communication and Behavior, and Basic Management and the Experiential Approach.

Roy Trueblood brings over three decades of counseling experience to The Atlanta Consulting Group. An ordained United Methodist minister, psychotherapist, and professor of counseling in previous careers, Roy Trueblood has a special gift for helping people enhance their self-esteem and learn how to enhance the self-esteem of others. He has contributed a lot of the heart to The Atlanta Consulting Group and its workshops. Roy Trueblood received a Ph.D. in counseling and psychology from Northwestern University in 1972 and a B.D. in religion from the Garrett Theological Seminary in 1961. He joined The Atlanta Consulting Group as Vice President in 1977.

When I was asked to read this book I can honestly say I wasn't thrilled. But truthfully it was very easy to read, very pleasant, and I truly enjoyed it. It is especially good for those who cannot stand the mundane reading of typical management books.

Once upon a time, in the early ’90s, a quartet of Atlanta organizational consultants – Hyler Bracey, Jack Rosenblum, Aubrey Sanford and Roy Trueblood – wrote this business management parable about a manager who grows from sour and crusty to sweet and caring. Their book caught the corporate world’s imagination and gave life to a “kinder, gentler” management style. Today, as authoritarian management tactics continue to fade and collaborative, empathetic leadership proves increasingly productive, their five axioms merit revisiting. These principles call for being understanding, supportive, perceptive, honest and compassionate. The story may be a bit schmaltzy, and it draws to a predictable conclusion; yet, because it departs from typical leadership tales and because it has hardily weathered the test of time, getAbstract recommends it to managers who want to succeed as leaders by being both effective and empathetic.

This book is a life application and consists of an easy to read 'story' about a man who is given a SECOND (or should I say, last) chance to learn and apply the suggestions regarding how he needs to treat his employees. Will he decide to use the second chance and apply the suggestions? Will he create a happy work environment for all? You will find this book difficult to put down once you pick it up. This is one book you will never forget! You'll want to share this book with your boss and his/her boss as well. We just ordered copies for each of our managers in our department.
