In your hands is the manual for raising children. Who says you can’t be professionally successful and a good parent? Stop compromising.  Satisfying work and a happy family? Yes, you can have it all.

Chris Efessiou is the innovative, brazen mentor that every working parent needs.  As an astute business leader, Chris learned early on that the skills he acquired in the boardroom transitioned seamlessly to the family room. Leading by example, mentoring, team building, mutual respect, accountability and trust are strategies that are equally effective when dealing with employees or assertive teens. By tuning into the message of CDO Chief Daddy Officer, you can be the same organized, effective leader at home that you are at the office, because you will learn how to harness your business smarts and channel them  into proactive parenting. “Being professionally ambitious and a loving, emotionally available parent are not mutually exclusive,” the author emphasizes, “because one costs the other nothing.”

Chris candidly shares his stories about raising his daughter to show how he was able to employ his business savvy to navigate the world of preadolescent years, and how you can do the same. No matter where you are in your parenting, the age of your children, or your present relationship with them, CDO Chief Daddy Officer will teach you how to apply the principals that guide the most successful business minds to raise happy, productive, well-adjusted, unentitled, successful adults who will want an ongoing loving relationship with their parents.


• CDO Chief Daddy Officer is a comprehensive blueprint that teaches you how to achieve success at home using fail-proof business tactics.
• The book offers a wealth of tips, illustrative examples and easy-to-follow strategies to help translate business savvy into smart parenting.
