Corporate Reputation 12 Steps to Safeguarding and Recovering Reputation by Leslie Gaines-Ross

Praise For Corporate Reputation: 12 Steps to Safeguarding and Recovering Reputation In a sea of business books, Corporate Reputation is a beacon of light for all leaders and future leaders looking for direction in the treacherous waters of a volatile business environment. It delivers a message that's provocative, insightful, and needs to be heard. -Heidi Henkel Sinclair, Director of Communications, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Every CEO, senior executive, and, increasingly, board member now appreciates the importance of building and protecting a company's reputation. Anyone who depends upon or shapes a company's reputation-customers, employees, news media, NGOs, and bloggers-will benefit from reading Dr. Gaines-Ross's book and will learn more about the influence they wield over corporate reputations. -Dr. Robert G. Eccles, Senior Lecturer, Harvard Business School At a time when companies are facing unprecedented reputation crises comes a timely primer from Dr. Gaines-Ross that tells us what companies need to do to bring their reputations back from the brink. The book's 12-step reputation recovery model captures what we know about effective crisis management, and brings the process to life with a host of detailed case examples. It's right on the mark! -Dr. Charles Fombrun, CEO, Reputation Institute Finally, a book that clearly, realistically, and compellingly explains how companies of all types and sizes can protect and restore an invaluable company asset-corporate reputation. Brilliant insights and practical solutions leap from each page! A definite must-read for business professionals everywhere. -Anthony Sardella, CEO, Evolve24 and Adjunct Professor at the Olin School of Business, Washington University in St. Louis


The book is an easy read-which is tough to do when talking about reputation management, trust me I know-and, as the title suggests, the repair process is divided up into 12 different steps. ( , April 3, 2008)
