As an Alberta grown, Calgarian by birth - I am convinced the adventurous nature of our pioneering forefathers is still an impressive motivating factor to raise the bar for entrepreneurs and corporate business people. They paved the road before us. Northern Tigers is an inspiring read of the success building blocks required to face the challenges in building an ethical Canadian corporate champion. Richard Haskayne winds his personal story through the pages of discovery for the reader to understand corporate decision making. His insights are in every single line. I had a difficult time putting the book down - it was just that good. Reflection points are continuous, such as on page 33 where he shares his delight in shaping the fortunes of the big corporation he was a part of and expands his thoughts to what really matters, shaping the philosophy of doing business. This caught my attention. What can the best leaders do? Richard answers this in every chapter, namely blend personal humility with professional will. Then he raises the bar - the best leaders are those who are ambitious for the company rather than themselves. Powerful, moving and inspiring words written with deep insights. Each case study is from real-time, personal depth of experience. He understands the importance of succession planning. He links hands-on accounting to the bottom-line. This book is a synoptic MBA. You must read it if you want to increase your management talents and understand the mind of the best salesmen, the deals that downtown Calgary is best for! Oh, to be one of the Northern Tigers – the best part is we can strive to attain the bar raised above us! Read how, buy the book today.
