YOUR ONLY JOB AS A LEADER IS TO MAKE SURE MONDAY MORNING DOESN’T SUCK.

At least that’s what Eric Harkins thinks. In his first book, Eric talks about his twenty-five-year journey working in corporate America and the many lessons he learned about leadership. He was lucky enough to work for a company that made sure Monday morning didn’t suck, but even luckier to work for several that didn’t.

Great Leaders Make Sure Monday Morning Doesn’t Suck is a fun, engaging, and light-hearted collection of stories told by Eric. He’s worked for some good leaders. He’s worked for some bad leaders. And he learned a lot about what it takes to create a culture high performers want to be a part of. “
