Authors On the Road, Changing the World - John Hope Bryant

By Aaron Schleicher, published August 18, 2014, at 1:31 AM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In the rapidly changing world of technology and the way we utilize that technology, we often forget many of our institutions were built over the phone, forming relationships with the people with whom we wanted to do business. In a group meeting here this week, our retired founder and president Jack Covert made the argument that if we want to maintain our current relationships better than our competitors and add something to their lives that others don't, we need to pick up the phone and have a real conversation with these people we value. We are fortunate that our business is still very much a people-orientated service company that really enjoys those breaks in the email or social media chain, and we’re lucky to have formed relationships with authors and institutions who uphold that same type of “old school” ethos.

Here at 8cr, we are so fortunate to work, and form long-lasting relationships with, really great authors who are sharing important ideas with people around the world. We see them out on the road speaking to hundreds of groups a year, trying to make the world of business a better place. Spending time away from their friends and families, they work hard to make sure that the ideas that they’ve captured on paper are helping people become better leaders, communicators, listeners.

800-CEO-READ in Japan????

By Aaron Schleicher, published November 9, 2010, at 10:39 PM – Filed under: The Company

Jon Mueller became the GM at 8CR a little over a year ago, and has done a really great job making sure that 8CR continues to move forward in the business book world while preserving our off the wall, quirky culture. Jon is thousands of miles away from the office this week (playing music in Japan), so we wanted to share a little bit of what he's doing while we're in the office doing what we do best (playing the office Wii and listening to tunes—while reading, promoting, and selling books of course! ).

Brand Autopsy on I Love You More Than My Dog

By Aaron Schleicher, published November 30, 2009, at 10:40 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

We had the pleasure of having Jeanne Bliss at our LeaveSmarter event in Milwaukee a couple weeks ago. In terms of presentations, we thought it was one of the best we've had to date. We wrote a Jack Covert Selects on I Love You More Than My Dog for October, and it's always nice to see what our friends have to say about important books.
