- Cassandra Gaudet, Owner, Real Living by Cass

"Commerce has become very fast-paced and often the most critical conversations with rising talent that will lead to increased revenue are cut short, as time is at a premium.  Promotion Protocol is right on-time for where business is today.  It allows for employees to have a clear lens on expectations to be promoted through a well-outlined process.   This is a great tool for the seasoned manager looking for new ways to work with talent and for a new leader who is just beginning the leadership journey.  The clear framework for both the employee and employer on what the organization needs to succeed is genius."

- Susanne Behrens, College President

"This book really couldn’t have come at a better time in my life and my career. I have worked at my company now for 11 years, I am currently a mid-level manager and have been in my current role for 4 years. As I anticipate the next step and what I need to make myself better, this book provided a lot of clarity and questions that I needed to ask myself. Over the next 26 weeks I am going to practice all 26 chapters with each of my employees. I am anxious to see their results as well as my own. I will report back in 26 weeks with the results!"
