    A must-read business leadership book... Today's businesses operate in a uniquely competitive world. Not only is there cut-throat competition among companies, but there is also a serious shortage of people with the right business leadership training.

As the title of the book suggests, this is a dynamic blueprint of a process that will benefit both your business as well as yourself as a senior manager or a business leader/entrepreneur, if it is correctly applied. Identifying six critical elements in the overall business process, the author examines each of them in exhaustive detail together with comprehensive implementation plans and strategic processes. Using many real-life situations that he has worked with, the author includes a variety of cases that dramatically illustrate the concepts discussed. There are also some excellent quotations from acknowledged historical leaders and CEOs of multinational companies. Some of them being on the humorous side, but also very true. Much of the theory discussed and presented in this book is at a rather advanced level, and more junior managers lacking the relevant qualifications may have to study this book intensely in order to fully understand it. There are, however, a wealth of links and references included. In addition, it is recommended that you download the business tool, provided, in order to analyze and chart the current situation, environmental conditions, and the actual functioning of your company. This book is written with CEOs or senior managers in mind, as it tackles advanced concepts related to the eventual long term development of companies and their strategic planning and positioning. The hiring of a business coach is one of the actions that is highly recommended. Using the concepts in this book, together with a suitable coach, as opposed to a consultant, the author guarantees that this approach will work. There is a multitude of actual companies provided as success stories. Of particular interest is the fact that the author actually identifies certain types of CEOs, with personal leadership styles and characteristics that render them "un-coachable," as they are reluctant to implement proven ideas and this has actually resulted in the overall deterioration of their companies. This is a comprehensively detailed book, consisting of a lot of fairly intensive theory, and is definitely suitable for senior and experienced business leaders and entrepreneurs. However, there is a multitude of resources provided for less qualified readers requiring expert help. Certainly, not about castles in the air, nor any abstruse theoretical concepts that could be difficult to practically implement; this is a comprehensive blueprint that will accelerate your business into regions that it would never otherwise achieve without the benefit of these plans and procedures, so precisely detailed and expertly tabulated by the author. Even simply studying the transformational procedures of the processes within this book will ensure a logically crystalline perspective that will also ensure clarity and resultant confidence that will dramatically illustrate a future path of heightened success, prosperity, and company potential, as a feasible and realistic possibility.

I have read many books on business and also attend business seminars once in a while. However, when I came across this book, I found it very educative, clear, and practicable. Launchpad steps are clear and easy to understand. Howard Shore uses simple English, bullet points, and graphics to increase understanding of the ideas hidden in this book. The leadership Launchpad is a very elaborate book and addresses the issues of human capital management. Growth expert Howard Shore presents the ideas in simple ways, though the points are advanced and need in-depth study to appreciate the things in this book. There are a lot of theories contained in this book that is appropriate for high-level managers.

It is a three-year plan to grow businesses and increase profit margins. It is a guide developed in five carefully thought out concepts. It is a book full of important information. It is divided into chapters, all topics are developed in depth, with simple language, and it can be read by all people interested in growing their business. At the end of each chapter the author includes a small summary, which seemed very useful and didactic. When I started reading the book I thought it did not fit my business, I thought that this strategy could only be implemented by large companies or experienced CEOs, but I was wrong. It can be applied by any entrepreneur who wants to generate a successful business. I really recommend this book, it is a useful and advanced guide to growing any business that feels stagnant.

Luckily, this is the case with this book.

This will help you jumpstart your business profits and growth. In this book, the five-step guide will help you identify mindsets, increase employee engagement, develop better strategies, help align your teams to impact your result and build a culture of accountability. I really liked the identification of the three top reasons your “bucket” is leaky. Broken into 22 chapters, the information given is nuanced and certainly not for the entry level leader. This book will be most beneficial to Leaders who have been in the business for a few years and know the meaning of certain key words and lingo. References are provided; however, I think that a solid groundwork will serve you best before you dive into this book. Other than that, I think it is sensible and poses interesting ideas for Leaders.

The person behind these lines is Howard M. Shore. Years ago, he developed his Business Acceleration System which guarantees a huge profit for entrepreneurs’ pockets as well as an improvement in both their professional and personal lives. Several well-known companies have hired Shore’s services, and of course, have boosted their incomes, which makes this book reliable. Though the book seemed a bit long to me, with its 22 chapters and 350 pages, the information in it is incredibly well-organised and well-explained. Clear pictures are also included, which can help any reader with the understanding of the ideas. I strongly believe that people who own a business and are ready to see their revenue growth can benefit from this story.

Shore divided the book into six parts and assigned a title to each of them, what I think makes it easier for readers to spot directly what they are looking for. I definitely recommend this book to entrepreneurs, to business people, to those about to become one or to those who desire to become one in the future and would like to be ready for it. If you belong to any of these categories, this is a must read for you!

I found a key point to be very revealing when he talks about business owners spending too much time “in” the business rather than “on” the business. This book will help transition to spending time developing and growing the business rather than handling all the small things in the business that a good team can handle. Great book with a great strategy. Check this one out folks it is worth the time.
