Help High School and College Students Think About Their Futures With This Christmas Gift

December 15, 2021 GMT

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 15, 2021--

Most high school grads and a surprising majority of college students have little idea of career possibilities beyond doctor, lawyer, teacher and special skills like athlete and musician. Very few know what a business career might look like for themselves. Yet, most Americans eventually work for a business in the private sector — somewhere between the factory floor and CEO suite.

This holiday season, consider a gift to high school and college students that can help guide them as they start thinking about their careers.

“Commit & Deliver” is a mentor in memoir form which guides the reader through a career in business from the factory floor to the corner suite.

Its author, Cyrus Freidheim, has had a long and successful business career as a management consultant, serving as vice chairman of Booz Allen, and CEO of Chiquita Brands and The Sun-Times Media Group as well as on 15 corporate boards. Cyrus successfully led efforts to save Chrysler in partnership with automotive legend Lee Iacocca, and also led a turnaround at Chiquita Brands. His new book, “Commit and Deliver,” is published by BenBella books. Freidheim has worked in 25 different countries and in every continent except Antarctica.

The book is for everyone considering a business career, particularly management consulting.

In “Commit & Deliver,” Freidheim, also author of the “Trillion Dollar Enterprise,” explores how career and personal decisions can be prepared for and made, how to grow professionally, and how to think through the complex business problems from a practitioner’s perspective.

It is the perfect gift this Christmas for children and grandchildren to open their minds to a world of opportunities and careers in business.
