Although merchant ships carry 90% of the world’s trade, the mariners who run them have little guidance on leadership. This can result in disasters such as the Titanic, Costa Concordia, the Exxon Valdez, and the recent El Faro. With modern ships being worth several million dollars, seafarers need leadership advice at every level of their career. Golden Stripes, Leadership on the High Seas provides this guidance, and much more.
Captain Parani weaves together his rich experience, cutting-edge insights and real-life stories in this book which has already garnered international acclaim. The reader will discover how to run a tight ship; enhance expertise; lead and communicate with a team; implement safety leadership; decide effectively in high-stake situations and be inspired by legendary sailors. It is a practical leadership action plan which can be applied at sea, or in any other workplace, anywhere.
Golden Stripes is the first leadership book of its kind, written by a mariner specifically for commercial shipping. The author’s experience both on board and from his corporate roles gives him a unique perspective on why, when and how sailors fail or succeed. Important messages are woven around engaging stories, quotes and practical leadership models, making this an indispensable read for all leaders.
I’d like to share news of my latest book Golden Stripes- Leadership on the High Seas. It is the world’s first book on leadership specifically for the maritime industry. It is for navigators and marine engineers, whether early in their career, or experienced and want to take their leadership to the next level.
I’d like to invite you to read this book. And if you liked it, to recommend to your network. It can now be pre-ordered at http://www.whittlespublishing.com/Golden_Stripes. Thanks.
Go for Gold!
