The 100 Update & Announcing My New Business Journal Column

businessjournalsAutumn is here, which for many of us, still evokes back-to-school memories and excitement about learning. What better time to brush up on workplace fundamentals, from building a winning business to advancing as a star performer? If you haven’t had a chance to read my latest book, The 100: Building Blocks for Business Leadership, I urge you to do so now.

Intertech has received more than 50 awards for growth, innovation and being a great place to work. The 100 details all the strategies that made it happen. I’ve been honored to receive dozens of positive reviews, including this comment from AbeTech Bar Code & RFID Solutions President Steve Schmidt:

“The 100 artfully captures Salonek’s decades of leadership achievements and details repeatable steps that we all can take to improve our business results. Read the book, learn the secrets and enjoy the fruits of winning in the marketplace.”

If you’re interested but super busy, you’ll be happy to know that The 100 probably is the most concise, easy-to-read business book you’ll ever encounter. Bring it on your next flight and arrive at your destination with dozens of new ideas and practical strategies to make your work life (and the rest of your life!) more productive and successful.

What else is new?

  • The Business Journal has asked me to contribute regular “how to” articles, beginning next month, based on topics in The 100. My column will appear bi-weekly on the Business Journal’s online edition. Please check out my columns and leave your comments in the feedback section.
  • Speaking of comments, I would greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts on The 100. Reviews on Amazon always are welcome, of course, or you can contact me directly at
  • My blog, is another place to tell me what you’re thinking, access the book’s downloads, or watch me delivering talks or being interviewed.

Lastly, please accept my personal thanks if you joined us in August for Intertech’s 25th anniversary celebration. Without all of you, Intertech still would be just a dream for a guy sitting in a cubicle thinking “There’s gotta be a better way!”

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
