Brief description of Ignited: Managers! Light Up Your Company and Career for More Power More Purpose and More Success

“Thompson rolls up his sleeves and provides managers a vision and road map to inspire organizational change and personal success.”

Chris Gorog, Chairman & CEO Napster

 

THE BUSINESS BOOK FOR THE REST OF US

Ah, the life of a manager. You’re squeezed between the needs of your corporation, your team, your customers, and your colleagues. Whatever your day-to-day realities, you can achieve far greater power, purpose, and success–Ignited will show you how.

 

“With a real-world view of what it's like to lead in limited space, Thompson shows middle managers how to access their true power and purpose to achieve the work life they've always dreamed of. This book really delivers on its promise to Ignite the magnificence of all.”

Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager ® and Leading at a Higher Level

 

“Brilliant; this is the best management book of the year. Jammed with vital takeaway value for managers, it should also be required reading and a sobering look-in-the-mirror for every business owner and CEO. This breakthrough work absolutely sparkles!”

Jason Jennings, bestselling author of It’s Not the Big That Eat the Small–It’s the Fast That Eat the Slow, Less Is More, and Think Big–ACT Small

 

Ignited speaks to managers in a way that I’ve seen no other business book do before. With sharp insights and an authentic understanding of our roles, Thompson demonstrates how managers can create the future. With Ignited you’ll get the big ideas that spark as well as the fuel to get you there.”

Brad Simmons, Senior Director Partnership Marketing, Experian

 

“Like a demolition expert, Thompson craftfully implodes America's old school management chain and shines the light on the hero in American business: the Manager. I was amazed at the immediacy in which you can apply the information in Ignited! Read this book and re-light the fire in your career, your company, and with everyone you come into contact with.”

W. Grant Eppler, Divisional Sales Manager–West, Heinz—Portion Pac

 

“If you want to change the world, you've gotta take a stand. With Ignited Vince Thompson does just that, showing managers how, in this time of reinvention and chaos, they can rise above the constraints to put the heart and soul back into business. This book and its lessons have the power to change your life and propel your career. Read it, Live it, and Be Ignited!”

Erin Brockovich, Advocate, Author, and Speaker

 

More Power, More Purpose, and More Success for Managers

Have you ever been maligned, misunderstood, downsized, reengineered, reorganized, or even misled? Even in the best organizations, you face brutal competition, non-stop pressure, and relentless change.

Ignited reveals the gathering forces that will offer you unprecedented opportunities to reshape your career and organization. It outlines clear, realistic steps for leveraging your networks and resources to transform your vision into reality, and accomplish powerful goals only you can achieve. This is not another diatribe on leadership or grand strategic vision written by those already at the top: the Jack Welches or Rudy Giulianis who can simply dictate their visions to the organization. Ignited is for those leading from the middle: managers who need real tools to make a real difference. If you’re ready to take back your business, your career, and your life, Ignited is for you.
