A special treat for me was to have Howard Guttman on my podcast. Howard is the principal of Guttman Development Strategies, Inc. (GDS), a Mount Arlington, NJ-based management consulting firm founded in 1989 and specializing in executive coaching; building horizontal, high-performance teams; strategic and organizational alignment; and management development training (www.guttmandev.com). GDS has been ranked as a top Leadership Development consulting firm by Leadership Excellence magazine, which also named Mr. Guttman to its list of “Excellence 100 Top Thought Leaders.”
Though are discussion centered on his latest and third book, Coach Yourself to Win: 7 Steps to Breakthrough Performance on the Job and in Your Life, (www.coachyourselftowin.com) I found myself talking about leadership issues in organizational life. Howard thinks like a leader, talks like a leader and I bet he even walks like a leader. The book is based on the proven process that he and his consultants have used to coach thousands of executives, in major organizations around the world, to higher levels of performance.
Mr. Guttman is the author of Great Business Teams: Cracking the Code for Standout Performance (John Wiley; www.greatbusinessteams.com), named one of the Top Business Books of 2008 by Soundview Executive Book Summaries. He is also the author of When Goliaths Clash: Managing Executive Conflict to Build a More Dynamic Organization.
