        be. I’ve benefited personally from the wisdom you’ll find in Rob Kramer’s Stealth

        Coaching and so will you and those who work with you. Do yourself a favor, get a

        copy of this book for yourself and every leader with whom you work, listen to what Rob

        has to say, and put it into practice."
