Description
James Cusumano has led many lives. Implementing his success as an entertainer, scientist, corporate executive, and entrepreneur as a template, Cusumano shares his multifaceted guide to success, personal fulfillment, and balance. This easy-to-follow, autobiographical guidebook, Balance: The Business–Life Connection, instructs readers in methods which will lead not only to increased productivity, but to an improved overall quality of life. Cusumano shows his readers how to identify and unleash their passion and individual power in order to find purpose along their path. Stressing the importance of recognizing and utilizing the talents already there, Balance encourages business leaders to realize their goals through the personal and spiritual connections they have with their work. From seasoned business leaders to those just beginning their careers, everyone can benefit from Balance. Balance lays out a plan for achieving goals in the social, professional, financial, health, and knowledge spheres of life. By integrating the goals in each aspect of one’s life, Cusumano illustrates the interconnectedness of one’s personal, spiritual, and business lives and the dependence of each sphere’s success on the success of the others. Without balance between them, the goals in each sphere cannot be achieved. Cusumano stresses that this must be balanced with a second, undeniable responsibility: a dedication to the sustainability of our world and its future. On a smaller scale Balance deals with relationships with family, friends, business protocol, and treatment of employees. But on a larger scale Cusumano tackles business’s impact on the community, the environment, and the world.
About the author
James A. Cusumano is an accomplished leader with successful careers as an entertainer, scientist, corporate executive, and entrepreneur. He started his professional journey as a successful entertainer as the lead singer for The Royal Teens of the 1950s and 1960s “Short-Shorts” and “Short Shorts Twist” fame. After receiving a PhD in physical chemistry, pursuing business studies at Harvard and Stanford, and receiving a fellowship at Churchill College at Cambridge University, he served as a research scientist and then Director of R&D for Exxon. Dr. Cusumano subsequently cofounded Catalytica, Inc., one of Silicon Valley’s successful companies with business units in clean energy and pharmaceuticals. He served as President and CEO of Catalytica and then as its Chairman. He also served as Chairman and CEO of Catalytica Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which grew in less than five years from several people to almost 2,000 employees with nearly $500 million in revenue, increasing Catalytica’s market value to $1 billion. Following this, Dr. Cusumano founded Chateau Wally Films and produced What Matters Most, released in over fifty countries. He moved to Prague where he and his wife, Inez, renovated Chateau Mcely into an internationally recognized spa hotel and forest retreat, chosen by the World Travel Awards as The World’s Leading Green Hotel. Dr. Cusumano created Chateau Mcely Forum to provide resources and educational products for Inspired Leadership and Conscious Business. Leadership for Life, a program that brings internationally recognized and accomplished leaders to Prague and Chateau Mcely to teach the power and potential of Inspired Leadership, is but one example of his pursuits in this area. An inspiring speaker and talented entertainer, he is the author of numerous technical and business publications as well as the author of Cosmic Consciousness—A Journey to Well-being, Happiness and Success, and a coauthor of Freedom from Mid-East Oil.
