Amazon Bestseller #1 in the following categories:

Corporate Governance; Business Etiquette; Communication in Management




What is Cockfighting ? All too often, the relationships between chairpersons and CEOs are filled with tension, affecting organizations as a whole. Drawing on studies in business, law, and psychology, as well as interviews with more than seventy chairpersons and CEOs, Cockfighting uncovers the roots behind these complex interactions. To create a more productive atmosphere, senior leaders need to identify the source of their issues and build a new bond based on trust and respect. Cockfighting offers insights into how the conscious and unconscious drivers of conflict and their intensifiers such as role models, role clarity, family structures, and birth order can cause antagonism. It also provides invaluable tools for increasing self-awareness and facilitating collaboration to improve the working atmosphere, and ultimately the organization's performance.
