"Welcome to the Big Leagues" Event with Author Carmine Del Sordi, January 17th at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes local author Carmine Del Sordi, as he discusses his new book "Welcome to the Big Leagues: Nine Innings of Essential Tips for the Corporate Rookie".

***Saturday, January 17th, 2-4pm***

From Carmine, about the book:

With more than 17 years of demonstrated success working within Fortune 500 companies that span both coasts of the US, I learned what it takes to play the game. More importantly, attending the school of hard knocks has tested and helped me to unlock the secrets of sustained success and greatness. As a business leader, my goal is simple … to get each member of my team to strive for full potential and perform at their very best. This meant coaching employees on how to prevail against pressure, face their fears and set out to accomplish greater things the right way. I wrote Welcome to the Big Leagues to help the Corporate Rookie of today to do all of this and much more. My focus was not only on building a strategy to coach this young, ambitious and often misguided group to thrive in career, but also to inspire them to pursue a more fulfilling life.

Crafting the blueprint for success is easy, maintaining the discipline and focus to follow it on a daily basis is the trying part that will test you in ways beyond imagination. Welcome to the Big Leagues prepares readers for this journey. Baseball is used as the backdrop, as many of the stories around the game and its players are relevant to the business world. From the hacks to the incredibly talented, and the humble to the arrogant, you will be forced to deal with all types in the workplace. In baseball, players need to be both mentally and physically tough. They face their fears each game day for the world to see and judge. Baseball is a competitive environment where only the best of the best make it. Players who struggle will work feverishly to avoid the slump. Even those players who fail and strike out 70% of the time are considered to be among the best in the game.
