Overview

TESTED BY FIRE presents the arts, sciences and intuition of backyard grilling as a metaphor for instructing new leaders in any industry. Combining theory and real-world experience from 40 combined years in military leadership, industrial training, organizational psychology and backyard grilling, the author presents 13 fundamental, thought-provoking scenarios for middle and senior leaders who own the responsibility for training and educating their organization's next generation of leaders. Examples include tales from the combat zone of Anbar Province in Iraq to life post-ENRON; comparing Santa Claus and jihad; and managing the challenges inherent in The 2nd Law of Social Thermodynamics - wrapped around the arts and sciences of spare ribs, potato salad, beer can chicken, the perfect seafood buffet on the grill...and many more.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - RR Richardson
This is a great read. A distillation of leadership methodology, using the metaphor of the Grill--something most of us can understand--either as a consumer of those tasty grilled goods or as the practiced process owner, flipping those burgers, sizzling those steaks. Dr. Klicker also draws on and makes use of our collective national culture and memories. Who would have thought that the "Wizard of Oz" could be such a useful device for teaching? Or, the Grill for that matter. I highly recommend this
