New Book Uses Fictional Format to Address Effective Leadership
Jun 10, 2008 (08:06 AM EDT)

PRINCE GEORGE, British Columbia, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Easy-to-understand, informative and entertaining, "A Passion for Leadership" (published by AuthorHouse -- ), the new book by Wayne Kehl, is not your typical business advice tome. Rather than lecture on the subject, Kehl uses a fictional format to drive home his message of positive reinforcement as an effective and efficient management tool.

Starring Walter Kennedy -- the CEO of a major, international tire company who was the central character in Kehl's first book, "If It Ain't Fun, It Ain't Worth Doing" -- "A Passion for Leadership" covers new ground in the genre of leadership and management as it offers numerous examples of negative workplace behavior and positive solutions.

"'A Passion for Leadership' identifies and resolves many of the challenges of employee disengagement and teaches the readers how to motivate employees to better performance in a positive fashion," Kehl explains.

Walter serves as a prime example of how "positive passion" can help a leader improve employee retention and overcome the day-to-day problems surrounding employees in negative situations. "A Passion for Leadership" explains the reasons for negative behavior and touches on many "taboo" but important subjects like sexual harassment and criminal activity in the workplace and issues with employees with learning disabilities. Created for leaders and managers in all forms of business and industry, Kehl's book includes a seminar on the theme, "positive passion," and three articles elucidating the concept. It also offers a reflection on the "personal vision" that every human being has and how real leaders consider and respect the personal vision of everyone they come in contact with.

Wayne Kehl knows a thing or two about the principle of positive passion. Currently an executive with a major international company, Kehl has been managing people for more than three decades and at the present time is responsible for more than 150 employees. Like anyone, Kehl has had to deal with the highs and lows of people management throughout his years in business, but his overall experience has been bolstered by his realization that a positive attitude is the only way to get the best from the people with whom he works. Jeff Mowatt, lecturer and bestselling author of "Becoming a Service Icon in 90 Minutes a Month," offers praise for "A Passion for Leadership":

In these pages, Wayne Kehl shares the secrets of how managers can not only correct problem behaviors, but also how to motivate and inspire individuals to live up to their performance potential. And the bonus ... As he did with his first book, Wayne has wrapped this message in a story format that makes 'A Passion for Leadership' a pleasure to read.
