Let's Be Clear Book by Ed Eppley
"My greatest strength as a consultant is to be ignorant and ask a few questions."

"Let's Be Clear"


From the small business owner to Fortune 200 CEOs, the highly skilled and accomplished manager understands and practices what Ed Eppley calls professional management. And like any other professional — athlete, musician, physician — mastering the skills required to be a professional manager takes continuous practice, fine tuning, and commitment.

Ed has trained companies around the world. In his book, “Let’s Be Clear: 6 Disciplines of Focused Management Pros,” he brings that knowledge and expertise to a broader audience with an in-depth look at the full scope of professional management. He breaks down the six disciplines critical for today’s professional manager, explains the role of each practice, how to implement it and why it’s critical to master it.


In addition to the six management disciplines, “Let’s Be Clear” also examines:

• The five stages of strategic planning.

• The four benefits of a strong structure.

• The importance of committing to three core values.

• The green thumb for growing people.

Every business owner, CEO and professional manager has room to become better. By committing to the professional management disciplines outlined in “Let’s Be Clear,” today’s leaders can develop a competitive edge for the future while building a sustainable and thriving business.

"...a manager exists for two reasons: To produce results and grow their people. Most managers know it's their job to produce results. Many do not understand that it's just as important to grow their people." - Ed Eppley
