About the Book — Disruption creates ten times the opportunity to advance your organization and your career, according to former CEO Peter J. Boni. In All Hands on Deck: Navigating Your Team Through Crisis, Getting Your Organization Unstuck and Emerging Victorious, Boni shows any leader or aspiring leader, with or without an MBA or Ivy League education, how to leapfrog over even those who have superior credentials or stronger ties to an old boys’ network.
Beginning with the riveting, true story of Massachusetts clipper ship Captain Josiah Nickerson Knowles who saved his crew and all but one passenger during not one but two shipwrecks in the Pacific, Boni demonstrates how adversity should be embraced, rather than avoided.
Using his own experience as CEO of embattled Safeguard Scientifics, as well as those of five prominent C-suite executives who triumphed over difficulties in the fields of consumer products, healthcare, biotech, non-profit and academia, Boni reveals how to get and keep organizations out of trouble and on solid ground.
Boni’s 12-Step Kedge -Off Process is a blueprint for repositioning organizations and a model for any executive facing business dysfunctions and setbacks. The Process is divided into three phases, each anchored with the easy to remember moniker the “ABCs to Advance.”
