NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Investis Digital, a leading global digital communications company, announced the publication of How to Lead a Values-Based Professional Services Firm, co-authored by its CEO Don Scales and Fran Biderman-Gross, CEO of communications agency Advantages. The book challenges leaders of the $2 trillion professional services industry to adopt a new mindset by managing their businesses based on purpose, values and story – the Three Keys to a brand’s foundation.

How to Lead a Values-Based Professional Services Firm is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Bulk Bookstore, Indie Bound, Books-a-Million, Porchlight and Hudson Booksellers.

Scales said, “How to Lead A Values-Based Professional Services Firm shares many lessons I’ve learned running professional services firms for nearly 40 years. The industry is changing radically. Increasingly, clients and employees are rewarding professional services firms that articulate a purpose, values and story. How to Lead a Values-Based Professional Services Firm will help leaders adapt successfully to this new reality.”

Biderman-Gross said, “When a leader has the courage to fully embrace the Three Keys, there will be significant impacts in all aspects of business: sales, marketing, human resources, strategic partnerships, and so on. The Three Keys become the filter through which any leader communicates your brand with employees, vendors and partners.”

Relying on compelling examples, Scales and Biderman-Gross show how the Three Keys can guide every single decision that a professional services leader makes, from hiring people to planning a merger/acquisition. Each chapter offers resources that can help companies seize the opportunities to run a business based on the Three Keys, ranging from forming the right culture to measuring performance.

As noted on the book’s website, the Three Keys will unlock purpose and profit – which, in turn, will enable companies to turn the obstacles into opportunities and grow revenue beyond expectations.

Don Scales possesses deep experience of managing professional services firms for more than three decades. In 2018, he spearheaded a rebranding of Investis Digital to reflect the focus on delivering sustained value by helping clients connect with their customers through digital. He previously led iCrossing from a small search agency to a global full-service digital agency that was acquired by Hearst Corporation for over $300 million.

He has also served as Managing Director of Igate Capital, as well as group Vice President of Industry Consulting of Oracle and Senior Vice President of Management Consulting of EDS.
