Mighty Midsized Companies: How Leaders Overcome 7 Silent Growth Killers

By Robert Sher
Midsized companies are often overlooked by Wall Street and mainstream media outlets, though they are an integral part of national economics. Thus it's important for national economic success to have a thriving midsized company sector. But that is not easy to do, largely because the factors that throttle growth of midsized companies can be quite different than those of their smaller and larger business brethren. Some of these factors are well known, but others can creep up on management teams and go almost unnoticed until it's too late.
Drawing upon his own experience and interviews with more than 99 companies, author Robert Sher runs through seven "silent growth killers" that plague midsized companies which, if not addressed, eventually cripple growth. "Mighty Midsized Companies" offers clear, tangible, actionable advice about dealing with these killers and growing despite them.

"Problems specific to midsize companies are not always visible. Sher writes passionately about the ways in which leaders can become aware of these challenges and rally their management teams. This is a quiet but hard-hitting game plan." --"Publishers Weekly" "Robert Sher has written a very important book in these times of economic uncertainty, and every executive team member of a midsized company should read it." --Warren Bennis, author and Distinguished Professor of Business Administration at the University of Southern California "Through interviews with CEOs as well as real life case studies, author Robert Sher shows readers how to keep a midsized company healthy and avoid the seven dangerous mistakes that kill growth." --Ken Blanchard, coauthor of "The One Minute Manager" and "Legendary Service" "Robert Sher offers powerful insights into how to address the critical issues that can derail growth in midsize companies." --Douglas Conant, former CEO, Campbell Soup Company and the "New York Times" bestselling author of "TouchPoints" ""Mighty Midsized Companies" superbly identifies the seven silent killers which routinely throw a wrench into a company's development and provides excellent solutions for fostering success. A terrific read." --Stephen M. R. Covey, author of the "New York Times" and "Wall Street Journal" bestseller "The Speed of Trust," and coauthor of "Smart Trust" "What a valuable book! Sher understands the unique opportunities--and temptations--that middle market companies meet on their road to growth." --Thomas A. Stewart, executive director, National Center for the Middle Market "Robert Sher's insightful and useful book could only have been created by someone who's been immersed in this world as practitioner and thought leader. Let's hope that this book is the first of many to shine the spotlight of public attention on this high-performing sector and its leaders." --George Gendron, long
