Overview

Learning to Lead: Uncover The Unspoken Reality

A Bull in a Glass House is a manifesto. A former Marine's view of the corporate world and how employees must step up to the challenge of navigating its potentially treacherous roads by embracing change and relationships. In 1986, after three years in the Marines and a short stint as an armed guard, this former Marine secured a job in a growing company. He came armed with only a high school education and no skills, other than being an Expert Marksman in the Marines. Over a period of 10 years, through hard work and sheer bullishness he scaled the corporate ladder into management. His 10 year tenure in management provided an in-your-face, practical view of the paradox between corporate level expectations and behavior and the human need to fill the most basic of desires- security, belonging and respect. Readers of A Bull in a Glass House are provided with the benefit of hindsight including actual situations and quotes, and proven tips for future survival and success. Armed with this knowledge, the reader unlocks her personal arsenal to conquer the pitfalls, land minds, and thorn bushes inherent in any company. Armed with this knowledge, the gap between working perception and employment reality is bridged. Armed with this knowledge, success becomes a temporary illusion until the reader reaches out, grabs it, and makes it real-makes it his own. A Bull in a Glass House is an intensely personal and passionate look at the inner workings of a corporation and how to succeed inside it from a former Marine who battled within its glass walls-and survived to write about it.
