    I’m inspired – I love the energy, the straightforwardness, and the tips. I know Get F.I.T., Go Far will be one of the few business books that I’ll keep on my bookshelf and turn back to time and again. Written for the busy manager or executive, this book is easy to skim, but organized so that help for specific problems can quickly be found, right when you need it!

    I was personally impressed by Herky’s holistic approach to leadership, from looking at the inner lives and personal characteristics of leaders to the differences between the written and unwritten values of organizations. I appreciated the level of detail in his stories and how he integrated key facts from other respected authors with reports of his own action research projects.

    Herky isn’t just sharing what he believes to be true; rather, he has grounded many of those beliefs in the existing literature and confirmed some of them with original research.
    There are practical tips, tools, and tests throughout the book, along with inspiring quotes. Herky also includes stories from working in schools, small and medium-sized organizations, government-run organizations, and large multinationals. There is something in this book for every leader.

    Herky has much to teach us about how to lead our organizations more effectively.

    There is always pressure on teams and organizations to perform and maximize profits and there are countless books on the subject. Herky’s book addresses a much more important issue…the health and fitness of the group and how vital that is to success. I love that it’s written with a focus on the person not just profits because they are the most important cog in the machinery.

    There is no shortage of books that purport to provide the answers to the problems ailing organizations today, many of which are filled with theoretical, abstract concepts too difficult to implement. I found that Get F.I.T. Go Far is not one of those books.

    I appreciate that Herky is a proponent of real-world recommendations that individuals and organizations can put into practice.  He has drawn on his many years of experience in varied circumstances to create an easy-to-read book that provides practical advice for leaders interested in effecting change.

    I absolutely enjoyed reading this book! The ‘real’ speak is refreshing and Herky Cutler delivers it in a genuinely caring fashion. The content is thought provoking and hits the key strategies that leaders need to contemplate and execute to be effective. 

    As a training provider/organizer, Herky’s book opened my eyes and provided me insight to better understand what drives a leader and how leaders can impact their organizations success.  Get F.I.T. Go Far is a paramount read that will create a springboard for anyone in a leadership role or aspiring to be.  Get ready, to get real!

    Herky provides a unique perspective on organizational fitness. He leverages a wealth of personal experiences to provide plenty of anecdotal material to support his insights. This not only gives credibility to his ideas, it also makes the book an interesting and easy read.

    He has provided a wealth of information and tools that you can use to make and keep your organization more F.I.T. The book can easily serve as a manager’s handbook. Each chapter tackles a different aspect of organizational fitness that can be referred to individually as often as required. If you are in a leadership role; team leader, manager, supervisor, senior executive this book is a ‘must’ to have and read.

    This combined with real life experiences, research to back it, and tools that are practical and realistic to implement provides a comprehensive attainable approach for anyone wanting to grow themselves and their company. And on top of that its an extremely engaging read!
