The Supervision Solution open

The budget I listed below is a placeholder. I don’t know how much this project should cost, so I would welcome pricing as part of any proposal.

I wrote “The Supervision Solution: Manage Performance – Not People.” I wrote it to provide business leaders who rarely read business books, an easy and engaging way to learn principles of supervision that they would not find any where else. The book was well received, but I feel it’s not engaging enough. It doesn’t tell a story – I don’t have the talent to write an engaging story. There’s a book called “The Goal.” The author Eliyahu Goldratt presents critical business concepts to the reader and does so as part of a novel. It’s not a great story, but it’s engaging enough to keep the readers interest while they are learning. That’s what I’d like to do with The Supervision Solution. Virtually everyone of us has lots of experience with and stories about horrible bosses (there’s even a movie by that name). I’d like to tell a story about how someone overcame poor leadership by applying the principles in The Supervision Solution. I like reader feel like she or he is reading about their own frustration and predicament with their own managers. I want the new version of The Supervision Solution to be fun to read and for folks to learn and apply the principles outlined in the book. It’s in hardcopy, but last year I decided to make it free as an eBook on SmashWords. If we get this new version done, the writer would get full credit as joint author of the book (my leadership concepts – her/his story). Perhaps we’d change the name. I’m open to anything. The target audience is the same as it was when I originally wrote The Supervision Solution – but this time I’d like it to reach a lot more folks because it’s an engaging story and they will learn invaluable principles of leadership.

It’s probably a good idea to at least take a look at The Supervision Solution to see if it would be of interest to you. Ideally I’d like someone passionate about the project because I’d like us to really make a difference.

If you are interested, please briefly share your thoughts about what you would write. Again, I’m open to anything so long as folks are really enjoying what they are reading and learning. Please also share why you believe you’d be qualified for this project.

Thanks so much!
